Pregnant and back aching!!
Hi, I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and really having a tough time with my lower back. I defintely have a nerve pinching into my leg on the right hand side. Would you suggest physio or a visit to the chiro bearing in mind that I am pregnant and lying on a bed is rather tricky at this point!!! (I do have an old back injury that is probably playing up more than usual at this stage). Thanks for the reply

Chiropractic care could still help at this stage - up to 28 weeks. Treatment should however be conducted with the utmost caution and consideration for your condition.
