Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Back pain is quite a common problem after delivery due to the odd posture and extra weight the spine has to bear during the pregnancy. You can take routine pain killers like Brufen and do a hot fomentation of your back. Calcium supplements regularly at least for next three months is needed to have permanent relief.
