Physical activity during pregnancy decreases severity of LBP, PGP during and immediately after pregnancy, but odds of developing lumbar/pelvic pain are not reduced

Being physically active during pregnancy did not reduce the odds of developing low back, lumbopelvic of pelvic pain either during pregnancy or in the postpartum period, according to a recent systematic review by Davenport et al. (2019).

Physical activity in pregnancy, performed in various formats, decreased the severity of low back, pelvic and lumbopelvic pain during pregnancy and the early postpartum period.
