It is estimated that 50% of pregnant women will suffer from low back pain (LBP) during pregnancy and 25% of women experience pelvic girdle pain (PGP).
Supporting the baby weight and stabilising the lumbar spine and pelvis helps to improve pain and dysfunction. Solidea’s Pregnancy range comes up over the belly to better support your changing body. Inbuilt support helps to lift the weight of the baby minimising strain and pain in the lower back and posterior pelvic joints. Even 12mmHg compression supports the hips and pelvis.
Pregnancy related LBP and PGP usually begins between 20-28 weeks gestation. It can significantly affect a woman’s quality of life, ability to work and look after older children. Early assessment and treatment provides the best opportunity for the best possible outcome. Core muscle activation, activity modifications and support using Solidea Pregnancy shorts, stockings and/or leggings helps to minimise strain and pain during pregnancy.
