Back pain during pregnancy, also known as pelvic girdle pain (PGP), is one of the most common inconveniences you may experience during your nine-month journey.
The pain not only affects your lower back, but also your hips and pubic bone. Your center of gravity completely shifts once you start carrying a watermelon in your uterus.
Here are some ways you can relieve your pain SAFELY and EFFECTIVELY.
Practice Good Posture
The bigger and bigger your belly gets, the more unbalanced you will feel. Try to even it out and protect your spine by standing up straight with your shoulders back and relaxed.
It's important to practice good posture both when you're sitting and standing. If you're sitting at a desk, put a pillow on the chair to support your lower back.
Wear the Right Shoes
There's nothing more important than the proper support to prevent back pain, especially with all of that extra weight. Remember, your shoes aren't just carrying you anymore - they're carrying your baby, too!
If possible, avoid high-heels, but also flat soles. Your feet may also swell during your pregnancy, so supportive shoes with a little bit of stretch are the perfect go-to pregnancy shoes.
When you are pregnant, you want to avoid any pain-relief products with drugs or harsh chemicals.
Luckily, MuscleCare is made of all-natural ingredients, and outperforms the leading topical brands.
Not only is MuscleCare safe, but it's also effective, and can relieve pain within minutes!
