Great ways to ease sore muscles
Post pregnancy, I was really keen on losing weight. Once I got the nod from my physician to exercise, I couldn’t wait to start off. What I did foolishly was overdo it! And the next day I felt like I was unable to move a muscle because of the pain and soreness. It was then a friend suggested that I try a hot bath treatment and a gentle massage, which I must say worked wonders.
She also sent me this stomach support belt to help the muscles and body from getting achey the next day after doing strenuous activity. I still look 5 months pregnant, though it has been 5 weeks since I had a baby. So I found this FLA Orthopedics lumbar sacral back belt with abdominal support extremely useful.
The back support is made of a high elastic material with foam and Velcro closures. It also features-
- Unique ventilated filament stitch
- Soft plush finish for a more comfortable fit
- Added support to lower back and abdominal regions
- Neoprene and Latex free
- Gives relief from lower back pain
- Easy to wear and use
- Hospital grade abdominal support with the attached belt
You can also try the heated neck wrap that will help with any sore muscles after if they didn’t use the belt. Post pregnancy, neck pain was a common problem because I would constantly be feeding in one position, especially when I was constantly looking at my baby to check if she was latched on properly. The heated neck wrap was really a relief and helped me battle neck sprains.
Along with this, you can also try the following to get relief from sore muscles-
- Go for a hot water bath with some added sea salt. It helps in reducing the pain
- A massage from a specialist goes a long way to it. They know just the points to get relief form soreness.
