About

More than 50% of women experience pain in the lumbopelvic area during pregnancy. The prevalence of pain increases with the duration of pregnancy. Trunk muscles are needed to sustain low levels of activity for an extended duration. Preventing muscles from fatiguing is very important. Manual therapy techniques can minimize loading of the spine while improving muscular endurance and preventing fatigue. Moreover, inhibition of the trigger points of the spinal musculature is an important factor to consider.

Full description

Tui-Na massage and positional release therapy are both of the common manual therapies used recently for low back pain. However, no studies have compared their effects on pregnancy related low back pain in third trimester.
