Here are two ways pregnant women can treat moderate-to-severe pain from pregnancy and other injuries or conditions without running the risk of becoming addicted to opioid painkillers used to treat pain:
- Maternity Supports and Belts - Wearing a maternity support or maternity belt during pregnancy can help to ease the stress on the mother of having another human being growing inside her. While not the be-all, end-all, some of these, such as the patented Prenatal Cradle, have received rave reviews from customers who claim that the difference in the amount of noticeable pain is significant to say the least. However, not all products marketed to help relieve pain due to pregnancy are the same, and some work better than others. The main thing is to find one that is right for the user's individual body, shaps and stage of pregnancy.
- Drug-free topical pain relievers such as BenGay and the harder-to-find but more effective Biofreeze are a great alternative to both over-the-counter and prescription pain relievers and pain killers. Plus, these products do not contain addictive chemicals such as the opioids, nor liver-destroying chemicals such as acetaminophen (the generic name for the active ingredient in Tylenol).
