Researchers at the University of Kentucky are conducting a study for low back pain (LBP) in pregnant women. Between 50-70% of pregnant women will experience LBP during pregnancy and is the most common reason women took leave from work. Participants will attend 3 data collection sessions. Total duration of each study session will be about 30 minutes. The 3 data collection sessions will be spaced out evenly throughout your pregnancy and will take place in the physician’s office after your regularly scheduled visits. Participants will receive $50 upon completion of each data collection session, $150 total.
