    Wednesday Q&A: Hip & Low Back Pain During Pregnancy, Cervical Spine Arthritis, & Misconceptions About Exercise & Movement Practices

    Welcome to Wednesday Q&A, where you ask questions and we answer them!
    In this Wednesday Q&A, we answer your questions about hip and low back pain during pregnancy, cervical spine arthritis, and misconceptions about exercise and movement practices
    Your questions:
    * Any suggestions for hip and low back pain during pregnancy? I’m in my 4th month and the pain gets worse from sitting for too long but also from working out. I’m keeping my exercise routine light and easy but the pain flares up, specifically on one side. Yoga, stretching, and even walking doesn’t feel as good as pre-pregnancy because I lost my body and movement awareness. Thanks!
    * A long-term yogi & friend (mid-60s) has recently been diagnosed with arthritis in her cervical spine, C2-C5. She has a fair bit of pain & is careful what she does in our LYT classes. In your opinion is there anything that I can do to help her?
    * What are some common misconceptions about exercise and movement practices?

Informative on so many levels

As a practicing non-traditional physical therapist myself, it’s always refreshing to come across great content from other colleagues in my field, who go above and beyond traditional PT. Lara is one of those colleagues who operates at that higher level.
