There are some things you’ll never forget. Your first kiss; your first driving lesson; the day you moved out of your parents’ home. And for women, the moment you found out you were pregnant. Who can forget that euphoria?
Well, speaking of pregnancy, there’s one more thing I’ll never forget – and no, it’s not the pain of labour. (Though I remember it well enough that I’d like to avoid it again at all costs.) I’ll never forget the day I developed sciatica.
“Pregnancy-related sciatica occurs when a baby’s head presses against the mother’s sciatic nerves, which run down the spine and into the pelvis and upper leg area. It can occur at any point during a normal pregnancy, but it is most common during the second and third trimester, when the baby is larger and in a lower position in the abdomen.
Women with sciatica often experience shooting pains or paralyzing numbness in the lower back or buttocks area and sometimes down the backs of the thighs. The pain can be severe enough to limit a person’s mobility almost entirely, and because it is caused by the position of the baby inside the womb, there’s very little that can be done to relieve the situation entirely until the baby is born.” (Source: Babyzone.com)
Oh yes, I remember sciatica like it was yesterday.
At first, I scoffed at pain relief. I have a fairly high tolerance for discomfort (I’ve stood in a Costco lineup behind my ex-boyfriend’s current wife), and in the case of topical creams, could not wrap my head around how something in a tube could possibly take away my misery. But then the pregnancy waned on, and my pain intensified. Finally, I woke up one morning hell bent on doing just one thing: easing the discomfort so I could get on with my day. Because I had a life to live, and I certainly didn’t want to live it doubled over in agony.
Of course, when selecting a topical therapy, it’s important to ensure that you select the correct one. LivRelief is powered by delivra which absorbs deeply into the skin, allowing the pain relief to start working on the spot. LivRelief topical creams are able to deliver large, water-soluable and fat-soluable relief agents. And in the case of pain relief, LivRelief Pain Relief Cream uses the active ingredient RUTIN for joint pain due to inflammation, which results in:
– Up to 75% reduction in pain with consistent use
– 65% increase in mobility
– 59% improvement in quality of life
Haven’t heard of LivRelief? LivRelief products are made from natural ingredients and do not contain Parabens, SLS, or menthol. With medication delivered directly through the skin, topical creams avoid such side effects as gastritis, dizziness, and cardiovascular, liver and kidney-related issues. And, LivRelief happens to be endorsed by NHL Hall of Famer Bobby Orr. I’m sure he knows a thing or two about pain!…
