How to Deal with Back Pain After Giving Birth

The pregnancy hormones that worked on loosening your joints and ligaments, and your strained ab muscles, are often the culprits behind the back pain that’s so common after you give birth. Your body went through a lot of changes while pregnant and while in the delivery room, and now it’s working hard on taking care of your newborn. Thankfully, though, there are things that you can do to deal with the back pain and get some much-needed relief.

Use the Right Back Pain Relieving Product

There are a lot of products on the market that claim to work on relieving back pain, but not all of them are created equal. To find a product that will really work, check out spinalbackrack.com. You can use the BackRack to release tension and reduce your pain without having to deal with any side effects. This means that you don’t have to resort to taking pain-relieving medications, and you can relieve your pain naturally and in the comfort of your own home.

Exercise a Little Bit Every Day

Exercising regularly after giving birth won’t only help you get your pre-baby figure back, it will also help to relieve your back pain and stiffness. Choose an activity that’s gentle yet effective, such as walking, which you can do a short time after giving birth. Just take things slowly and keep your walks short for the first few weeks after the delivery. You can also incorporate some swimming, stretching, yoga, and other low-impact workouts for great results.

Avoid Standing for Long Periods

Standing for long periods of time could increase the amount of back pain that you have to deal with, so try your best to avoid standing for extended periods of time. If you do have to stand for a while, use a low stool on which you can rest one of your feet so that you can release at least some of the pressure from your lower back.

Get a Massage

A relaxing massage that focuses on releasing the tension from the muscles throughout your back could be just what you need to feel some much-needed relief, and it’s also an ideal way to totally relax and take a break from your new responsibilities as a mother. You can get a massage from a professional or you can simply ask your spouse to pamper you for a bit.

Try to Sit Up Straight

Being mindful of your posture is another key component to relieving back pain, especially after you give birth. Make it a point to sit up straight, and focus on your posture while you’re feeding or nursing your child. Use a footstool to keep the feet raised slightly off the ground while you’re seated, and opt for a chair that has armrests and pillows to really get comfortable.

As you can see, you don’t have to deal with the back pain that often comes after giving birth. Try out the strategies above to relieve your stiffness and pain so that you can enjoy every minute that you spend with your newborn.
