What is going on with back pain after giving birth?It’s not that the confinement is not sat well, maybe something wrong here!

Many mothers will have such a question. After giving birth to the baby, they will have back pain without moving. Sometimes they have pain with their legs. I endure the pain when I am pregnant. Why is it more painful after this birth?

The most stuffed thing is that the mothers are sad enough, and some people say the wind and cool words, or you can say that you are in confusion. "You do n’t listen to the bath, are you going to the root cause? "

Confinement disease is indeed a strange existence. There is no medical book and clinically, but many people are determined to exist.Whenever you have any uncomfortable after giving birth, someone will jump out and say that it must be a disaster in the confinement.

As a doctor, I believe that every disease should have the cause. If you want to talk about "confinement disease", we have to start from the root, so I deliberately checked the interpretation of confinement disease:

Calling out the hard -to -understand veil, simply speaking, "confinement disease" is actually caused by "cold".

So the reason why postpartum pain is back pain, you must be walking down the ground, or you have to take a bath and cool …

I can’t help asking if I saw it here, is it lying on the bed during the whole confinement, and if you cover it in the bed tightly, you wo n’t have back pain?

I dare to bet, you still have back pain.Because of postpartum back pain, it has nothing to do with confinement. It is actually doomed when you are pregnant.


Back pain can be carried during pregnancy

Due to the increase of relaxation, the joints of pregnant mothers have relaxed, and the sacroiliac joints, sacral joints, and pubic bone combination increased, which leads to the more unstable lumbar spine and can easily cause waist discomfort.

As the pregnant mother’s uterus increases, the center of gravity moves backwards. In order to balance, the spine and waist section of the pregnant woman will gradually grow forward, the neck flexes forward, and the shoulders will move down.

If this posture is maintained for a long time, coupled with the weight of the uterus and mother’s own weight, it can be imagined how much burden on the spine and pelvis.

Think about it, it is impossible to rebound instantly for a day of a rubber band, let alone the spine and pelvis that have been oppressed for half a year?Therefore, although the goods are unloaded, the waist can not be resurrected in one minute.

Therefore, postpartum back pain is largely "sequelae" during pregnancy, but fortunately it is temporary, 80%-95%of low back pain can be relieved within 6 months after delivery.

But to say that this process varies from person to person, long or short, or about 20%of patients with low back pain continues back pain 2-3 years after childbirth.


Tail vertebral pain, leg pain, look for childbirth back pot

Some mothers will feel the pain of the tail vertebrae after giving birth. This is caused by pressure during childbirth. This pain will become obvious the next day after childbirth, especially when the maternal reaches, the pain will be significant.Pain may also occur when standing, defecation and room.

In addition, leg pain often appeared after delivery is also related to childbirth.During the birth, the decrease in the tire head in the pelvic cavity will compress the lumbosacral nerve clumps, and the pain may be radiated down to a single leg or legs.In addition, the expansion of the abdominal wall and the increase in the premium of the lumbar spine may also cause thigh pain, but fortunately, most people will be relieved within 3 months.

Therefore, postpartum waist and leg pain is the normal changes in the motion system during the dysaptive period, not a "confinement disease".

3 Postpartum weight gain will also aggravate low back pain

In addition to pregnancy and childbirth, improper care in confinement can also lead to low back pain, but it is not because he walks down the ground.

A study from the Danish National Birth Cohort showed that the rise in BMI before pregnancy and postpartum is a risk factor for low back pain.Compared with women with normal weight, the risk of ultra -weight and obese women after pregnancy is nearly 30%.

In other words, excessive weight before pregnancy and postpartum eating fierce supplement leads to the gain, which will increase your back pain.


Parenting labor may also increase low back pain

New mothers need to take care of their children after giving birth, such as feeding for a long time, coaxing children, frequent changes in diapers, washing clothes, etc. These housework labor will increase lumbar muscle strain, so that the "old waist" like porcelain "old waist" is worse.

All in all, postpartum low back pain is a "accumulation of hard work" that is caused by many factors, not caused by getting out of bed or getting cold in the confinement.

So, how can mothers alleviate postpartum back pain in daily life?Pay attention to the breastfeeding posture, choose a seat with support for the waist when feeding, or put a small pillow on the waist to support the waist.When the mother needs to stand or sit down for a long time or coax the baby to fall asleep, one foot can be placed on a low stool to relieve waist pressure.To bend over, choose a highly suitable maternal and infant table to replace the diaper. The daily transportation of heavy objects allows her husband to do it. When you have to lift heavy objects, use squats, bend your knees and keep your back straight.Essence

Choose a mattress with a suitable soft and hardness, and don’t sleep too softly.It is recommended to take a side position to keep your knees and hips bent, and you can put pillows between both knees to provide support.Choose a pair of low -heeled shoes that support the arch (be careful not to be flat heels).Do some recovery exercises to prevent low back pain.

Note: After 3 days of delivery, you can start exercise according to your physical condition. Care section needs to consult a doctor before starting to exercise.Walking, swimming, etc. are good ways to exercise muscle groups. Stretching such as yoga can also improve low back pain, but be careful not to excessively stretch cause new problems.Hot compresses can relieve low back pain. Take a hot bath and apply a hot bag to relax the tense muscles in a short time.

If the above methods cannot relieve low back pain, you can go to professional medical institutions. Physics, acupuncture therapy, spa, etc. can reduce pain, but the effect varies from person to person.If the pain is severe, you can consider taking analgesic drugs, which can be used during lactation during lactation.

In addition to the above suggestions, the bacteria also remind everyone that they should pay attention to controlling weight during pregnancy and postpartum. It is not because they don’t look good (you are all little fairy in my heart).Back pain is not a disease. It is a life pain. Let me say that the best way to relieve low back pain is to be aggressive when it is time.
