1 Bump

Back Ache

I'm 6'2 and for those of you who don't know tall people generally experience a lot of lower back pain, from having to hunch down where "normal" height people can just stand/sit comfortable. The question is since becoming prego if feels like there is zero relief ever, I can't use the normal rubs or pills for obvious reasons and the heating pad just isn't cutting it, any other ideas?

  • You should try to discipline yourself not to haunch over, as much as you can. Even if you weren't pregnant, it is bad for your back and could leave you with permanent damage to your back. Try stooping by bending your knees, and sitting, as much as possible. Congrats on the baby!

  • I think inversion table could be good for you. There is a good article about it, titled "Inversion Tables - Do They Work and are They Safe For You?" You can take a look at it right here, hope it helps:
