Generalized joint laxity as a predictor of recovering from low back pain during pregnancy – A prospective study.



Low back pain (LBP) is a common musculoskeletal problem during pregnancy. The symptoms usually disappear gradually after delivery, but some women may have persistent problems even later in their lives. Individuals with generalized joint laxity (GJL) were expected to have more injuries on lumbar discs and require prolonged healing time. Therefore, this study aims to investigate whether the test of GJL before the pregnancy could predict the prognosis of pregnancy-related LBP.
