Put your hand up if you suffered/suffer with back pain during pregnancy! I know I did. I was very unlucky during my pregnancy and suffered with SPD (Symphysis pubis dysfunction), carpel tunnel and gestational diabetes which I couldn’t control. Luckily as soon my little one was born all my symptoms disappeared for all of these. Often it’s not the case and the pain continues after child birth. What would you give to get some relief without feeling guilty or worrying about it affecting the baby.
I received some lovely samples from Jungle Cat Solutions. I actually thought to myself when would I have time to review these as there is nothing wrong with me.
Jinxed it. We had an awful night with the toddler who ended up joining us in bed. I had the most awful night sleep, I daren’t turn my back on her, so had to sleep on the ide I don’t normally. This plus receiving punches and kicks to the face. I woke up the next morning (had I really even slept) with the most awful pain in my neck and shoulder.
Perfect… cue deep freeze. Now, I’ve tried the opposite of these and have only felt a slight warming when using then. Needless to say I was not prepared for the iciness that hit me. Now I know it’s called Deep Freeze, the name should give it away but oh my goodness! I actually gave out a little squeal and I forgot the pain immediately as my husband applied the patch. I wore a patch for most of the day, and if I did forget I was wearing it, a quick move of the shoulder brought the cold feeling back. I have to say the patch did relive the pain for a good 6 hours or so.
At Bedtime I didn’t want to be restricted by the patch so I asked my husband to apply the roller ball gel to the affected areas.
I was really impressed with both of these products and absolutely love the smell of it too, which lingered around for quite a while. Overall, I would definitely recommend both these products.
An article recently published from Deep Freeze talks about mums to be and new mums struggle with back ache and do nothing to manage the pain. This is mainly due to fears about whether things are safe when pregnant or breast feeding. After research it was revealed that
- A quarter of women experience more back pain than usual.
- A fifth suffer more general aches and pains.
- One in six notice more hip pain.
- Almost one in ten say they experience wrist pain or carpal tunnel syndrome – pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm due to nerve restriction.
- A similar proportion suffer from foot pain.
- Yet, only 13% of pregnant women in this deep freeze survey who had suffered from aches and pains had used a cold patch.
These ache and pains often don’t stop after delivery.Dr Catherine Hood, women’s health expert says “It is natural to experience aches and pains during pregnancy. The body is changing, the uterus is expanding, additional weight is being carried, posture is changing and these all put excess strain on muscles and joints.”
“However, it is very worrying that many women just struggle on through the pain accepting it as an inevitable side effect of pregnancy and birth – when it doesn’t have to be. And with painkillers best avoided in pregnancy, mums to be are anxious not to rely on the medicine cabinet.”
“A natural, drug -free treatment option is cold therapy in the form of a cold patch or topical gel, like Deep Freeze Relief Cold Patch. Yet only 13% of women in the survey used this effective remedy. Cold patches help to relieve muscular pain through a dual action of cold therapy and pain relief. They are safe during pregnancy and breast feeding and are especially useful for back pain, mild ankle swelling and carpel tunnel syndrome”
