Moms’ postpartum and low back pain
Yesterday, I chatted with a few mothers and friends. Everyone talked about her back pain after giving birth.
Shortly after the confinement of Qiao Qiao, she said with a frowning face:
Recently, my back pain has become more and more obvious. Sometimes I sit after feeding my child’s milk, and I can’t stand up. My mother -in -law said that I was not sitting in the confinement and should not hold my baby.
Xiao Zhou mother said:
I have a cesarean section. The children are more than 2 years old. I get up every day, and I still ca n’t make my waist. I have to climb slowly to get up.I dare not walk too long when I go out now, otherwise I start to have back pain again. My friend said that since I had a child, I seemed unsightly.
In fact, Dou’s mother also realized that in the late pregnancy, she began to feel the soreness of the waist, especially when walking or bending down, there will be a faint pain.
Although it is not particularly painful, if you can’t sit down immediately and rest, you really have a sense of collapse of the waist.After production, this soreness has not been relieved.
So the mothers have low back pain after giving birth. Is it because the confinement is not sitting well or for another reason?
Reasons for postpartum back pain
The saying of "Ten New Moms and Nine Back Pain" is not exaggerated. Why are children born and back pain continuing?There are generally the following reasons:
1. Physiological calcium deficiency
After pregnancy, due to the impact of hormones in the body during pregnancy, the system of expectant mothers will change, and calcium will participate in bone metabolism.The conventional diet of pregnant women cannot meet the needs of maternal and infants to calcium, so pregnant women need to supplement calcium.
Handicating to childbirth in October is a long and arduous process, which is also a very big challenge for women’s bodies.
After childbirth, the mother’s body is in a relatively weak state, and it takes a lot of energy. Many mothers insist on breastfeeding. Calcium loss is also serious, and calcium deficiency can easily cause back pain.
2. Excessive exhaustion
Due to pregnancy consumption, the skeletal system changes, the bones and joints are slightly loose, muscle ligaments are stretched, and elasticity decreases.
Women’s muscles and ligaments are relatively weak compared to men. In addition, some mothers usually have poor physical fitness, improperly rest after giving birth, and stand for a long time and sit for a long time.Unable to recover, causing damage to muscle and ligaments, and eventually caused pain.
3. Endocrine changes
After the ligament is relaxed, the endocrine system changes, and it cannot be recovered to the state before pregnancy.The pelvic ligament will still be relaxed for a while, the abdomen muscles will become weak, and the uterus cannot completely reset, causing low back pain.
4. Frequent bending
Postpartum Bao Ma often wants to bend over to take care of her children, such as bathing, dressing, changing diapers, and often coming out of the baby from the cradle, and some will cause pelvic blood stasis because of poor dew.
5. Excessive exercise amount
Many mothers have a small amount of exercise after giving birth, and they are always lying on the bed for recuperation; coupled with weight gain, increased abdominal fat, and increased waist muscles, leading to lumbar muscle strain.
6. Wet and cold invasion
Some mothers have poor physical fitness, lack of blood and blood postpartum, weak constitution, poor physical resistance, inadvertently suffering and cold, and the meridians are blocked, causing low back pain.
In this way to prevent and reduce back pain back pain
How to prevent and reduce back pain?
1. Try to use the waist as little as possible
Simply speaking, it is from the beginning of pregnancy, especially in the first few months after pregnancy and childbirth. Try to use as little waist.I need to remind myself not to wait until the waist is painful, and then I know that I want to change my posture.
2. Improve your diet
In order to prevent back pain from postpartum, pay attention to diet from the beginning of pregnancy.Eat more vitamin foods rich in calcium, vitamin C, D, and B, such as milk, bran, bran, carrots, etc., add calcium properly, increase the proportion of vegetarian food, avoid gaining weight to increase the burden on the waist, and cause lumbar muscle and ligament damage.
3. Appropriate exercise
Do not bed too much during pregnancy, you can do some simple household chores. In the early stages of pregnancy, you should insist on walking and other appropriate exercises, or do some gymnastics to prevent back pain to enhance the flexibility of the waist and back.
After two weeks of production, you can start strengthening the movement of the abdomen and lumbar spine, such as sitting up and using anal contraction to improve the stability of the lumbar spine.At the same time, it is conducive to the excretion of lochia and the reset of the uterus.
4. Use the correct breastfeeding posture
When feeding your baby, pay attention to the correct posture. Both of them can be sitting or lying on these two kinds of breastfeeding positions. It is best to lie down and feed.
If you need to sit down and feed, you can put one foot on your feet.It is best to put a pillow on your knees to raise your baby so that your body’s center of gravity will not be on the waist.
5. Replace the sleeping posture
After giving birth, you should lie on your back or lying on the side. He often changes the bedside posture. Pay attention to the warmth of the waist to avoid heavy items.
In short, mothers after childbirth are prone to low back pain, most of which are caused by bad habits in life, so mothers have to believe that actively do some repair exercises. Pay attention to lifestyle habits, and soon get rid of the trouble of back pain.
