Volunteers must have current back pain or a history of back pain, must be between the ages of 18 and 35, be willing to be randomly assigned to one of three exercise programs, and not be past the 21st week of pregnancy. Participating women must also be free of selected complications and must obtain approval from their pregnancy health-care providers.

Babysitting will be provided at the exercise and testing sessions. Volunteers will be paid $150 for participation and $60 for completing three one-hour testing sessions.
