Many mothers describe pregnancy as “cutting six generals through five hurdles”. For pregnant low back pain, it is crazy Tucao. Because of the busy work life, many expectant mothers have sub-health problems in cervical spine or lumbar spine. Pregnancy leads to changes in various functions of the body, loss of bone calcium, and low back pain.
Lumbago during pregnancy mostly occurs in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, but there are also expectant mothers who suffer from low back pain early in the early trimester of pregnancy. Low back pain in early pregnancy is due to a slight spasm or contraction of the uterus caused by progesterone after implantation of fertilized eggs into the endometrium. Because the location of lumbosacral bone, especially the position of Baliao Point, is close to the location of uterus and ovary, some expectant mothers feel that lumbosacral acid rises, but this feeling is generally not obvious or slight, and will not affect the daily life of expectant mothers.
By the second trimester of pregnancy, the abdomen of expectant mothers is gradually enlarged because of the growth of fetal treasure, and by the third trimester of pregnancy, the abdomen has been at the “peak”, so the expectant mothers have to stand and walk with a heavy stomach, exerting pressure on the spine, lumbar spine and pelvis, and the waist muscles can not be relaxed because of a long time of tension, thus causing pain.
“Pregnancy low back pain is not a disease, the pain is fatal,” this sentence, expressed the voice of expectant mothers. The key to getting rid of low back pain during pregnancy is that expectant mothers should pay more attention to the details of waist protection in their life.
1. Bend correctly
Expectant mothers in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy begin to get bigger and heavier in their abdomen. Bending down will increase the pressure on their waist and also bury hidden dangers for low back pain. Do as little bending as possible and avoid bending for a long time. In daily life, expectant mothers need to bend down, such as picking up things, wearing socks, cutting nails and so on. They can entrust others to entrust others as far as possible.
If you need to do it yourself, you should also pay attention to the posture when you bend down, such as keeping your back straight when picking up things, raising your heels slightly from the ground after bending your legs, and slowly squatting down. When you get up, you also need to keep your waist straight, hold firm objects, and then slowly rise.
2. Straighten your waist while walking
When walking, mothers-to-be remember to straighten their waist. Keeping their spines straight can reduce waist pressure, put their body’s center of gravity on their heels, and let them land steadily from heel to toe. Especially in the late pregnancy, mothers-to-be are slow in action, with large abdomen and easy to cover the foot of the road, so when walking or climbing stairs, in addition to upright waist plate to protect the spine, but also remember to look at the foot of the road and then walk to ensure safety.
3. Correct sitting and sleeping posture
Working mothers-to-be spend more time sitting in the office. In addition to avoiding sedentary back pain during pregnancy, they can also prepare a small pillow for themselves, adjust the height of the seat when sitting, so that the soles of the feet can be placed on the ground, so that the waist can rely on the small pillow, which can protect the spine and lumbar spine.
In the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, because the enlarged abdomen is easy to make the expectant mother feel oppressive when lying flat, it is suggested that the expectant mother should adopt the position of side-sleeping. When sleeping, you might as well use the more popular U-shaped pillow for pregnant women. This pillow not only helps to hold the abdomen when the expectant mother sleeps side by side, but also relaxes the waist of the expectant mother.
Finally, I would like to remind all mothers-to-be to pay attention not to get up directly from lying down to getting up, but to get up slowly, so that they can gently twist their waist with the help of their hands on their side, so as to avoid exerting too much pressure on their waist when they suddenly get up directly.
