    Back and pelvic pain in pregnancy

    I'm 20 weeks pregnant with twins and I started feeling some pain in my low back and the hip area. I tried wearing one of those support belts but I don't like it because of the pressure that puts under the belly, plus it's bulky and uncomfortable to wear. Is there something else out there that is not the belt and that is comfortable to wear? Please help.

    I used to have the same problem. I had to visit my physical therapist very often so he can readjust my pelvic bone. He then suggested I wear a Maternalift to help me stabilize my pelvis. I've been pain free for a long time now. This product uses a strap system on the "back only". Also the fabric is stretchy and comfortable to wear and the best of all that you don't have to take it off every time you go to the bathroom, it has a keyhole opening on the bottom. Check out their website for more info and I would suggest to talk to your PT to see what he says.

    I used to have the same problem. I had to visit my physical therapist very often so he can readjust my pelvic bone, but it always got shifted again after a couple of days so the pain would come back. He then suggested I wear a Maternalift which surprisingly took care of the problem, I've been pain free since I've been wearing it. This product uses a strap system on the "back only" and the material is very soft and comfortable to wear. The best of all is that you don't have to take it off for all the hundreds time you need to go to the bathroom, it has a keyhole opening at the bottom. Good luck!
