Kids Can Be a Pain in the Back?
Posted by Kathleen George on November 14, 2016 0 Comments
Even if you never had back pain before, labor and delivery and the subsequent 50-pound car seats we haul around postpartum can lead to temporary or permanent back issues. Here are some basic things you can do to help alleviate the back pain we all get from carrying such a “heavy load”.
Enjoy a warm bath – Maybe even add some Epsom salt, light candles and try to let your muscles relax.
Heating pads – These pads really do wonders and the warmth is comforting during cold weather months.
Treat yourself to a massage – Sometimes our muscles need the extra added help and we Moms could use the break!
Ask for Help – It’s tough as a Mom to ask for help and a lot of families don’t live near relatives these days but you would be surprised how quickly Moms are willing to help out another Mom by watching their kids or running an errand.
Medical Assistance – Some Moms refer to chiropractors, acupuncturists and physical therapy. If your back pain has become chronic you may want to ask your doctor about other alternatives.
In the end, all Moms need to take a break…easier said than done but without a healthy, happy Mom everyone suffers. Check out these links related to back pain and how to manage it.
