Belly bands help decrease your pain
Back and joint pain during pregnancy can be frustrating and make it difficult to participate in everyday activities. A study in Spine JournalTrusted Source investigated the prevalence of back and pelvic pain during pregnancy. They found that 71 percent of women report low back pain, and 65 percent report pelvic girdle pain. Wearing a belly band during pregnancy may help support your lower back and baby bump during activities, which can result in decreased pain overall.
Belly bands provide gentle compression during activities
Ever go for a run without a sports bra? Sounds awful, right? The same principle applies to a growing baby bump. The gentle compression of a belly band can help support the uterus and reduce discomfort from movement during physical activity.
They can be worn after pregnancy for support
Decreased core strength is common in the weeks following birth. Muscles and ligaments that were stretched and strained during pregnancy require time to heal. Weakness combined with the demanding job of caring for a newborn can be challenging and lead to injuries. Many women find that wearing a belly band postpartum provides additional support to the abdomen and lower back, decreasing discomfort. A belly band can be beneficial to women who have experienced a separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti) by physically bringing the abdominal muscles back together. Combined with specific exercises, this may assist in closing the gap between the abdominal muscles. Remember, a belly band is a temporary fix. It doesn’t heal the underlying condition or dysfunction. By supporting the abdomen, it can “turn off” the muscles underneath, causing increased weakness long term.Exercise increases muscle tone and endurance and decreases the incidence of hypertension, depression, and diabetes. Many women are unable to exercise or continue working during pregnancy due to pain and discomfort. Wearing a belly band can help decrease discomfort and allow participation in daily activities, resulting in physical and financial benefits.
Important things to know about wearing a belly band
Wear a belly band or support garment for no more than two to three hours at a time to prevent overdependence. Exercises to strengthen the transverse abdominis should be done in combination with the use of a belly band to strengthen the core muscles both during and after pregnancy. Always consult your doctor before using any compression garments. Women with compromised circulation or abnormal blood pressure may be advised against the use of a belly band. Belly bands are for temporary use and aren’t a permanent fix. It’s important to address the underlying dysfunction. A referral to physical therapy is recommended to address ongoing pain both during and after pregnancy.

This product is amazing!
