Want to know what the Plexus Wheel is like from someone who had chronic back pain? Read Sarah's Story! From chronic back pain to NO back pain. I have been suffering from back pain for over 10 years now. Ten years ago I suffered from a horrible case of pneumonia.

The 3 P.M. slumps can cause more than just a headache. Hence the slump; we get tired, move slower, sit with poor posture etc. That's not all.

Before we dive into helping lower back pain during pregnancy, let me introduce myself. Hi, I’m Hannah! I work in the marketing department at Plexus and YES, I am pregnant! So, you could say that I’m a reliable candidate to write this blog (at least my fellow co-workers thought so). Here’s a little background: I’m currently 25 weeks prego and I hear this phrase almost every single day, “You don’t even look pregnant!” And it’s true. I’m hardly popping out, even though I’m over halfway to the finish line. It’s because my sweet baby boy (IT’S A BOY!) loves to...
