Collection: Maternity Belly Belt

In ZSZBACE we have many back braces specially designed for women. Whether you've injured your collarbone or need a maternity brace, we've got you covered. Obviously, a woman's body is very different from a man's. Because of this, braces made for women are more effective in treating back problems. In fact, some doctors and scientists claim that back injuries are more common in women than men. For example, compression fractures and osteoporosis of the back are more common in women. A back compression fracture occurs when your vertebrae or spinal bones break. The main cause of compression fractures is osteoporosis, the inability of your body to make new bone. For obvious reasons, other back conditions that are more common in women include pregnancy-induced pain problems. Chronic back pain from pregnancy can also cause problems with pelvic pain. For all these reasons and more, it is very helpful for women to be able to use a harness designed for their specific anatomy for treatment.

Other common causes of back pain during pregnancy include:

hormone changes

Progesterone levels rise slowly from the 9th to the 32nd week of pregnancy. This hormone relaxes the muscles and ligaments near the pelvis. Another hormone called relaxin, which is produced by the ovaries and placenta during pregnancy, also affects the joints and ligaments of the pelvis, making them more flexible during labor. These changes can lead to lower back pain.

changes in abdominal muscles

The abdominal muscles help stabilize the spine and support the back. Because of the pressure the growing fetus puts on the abdominal muscles, pregnancy can cause these muscles to stretch and sometimes separate, known as rectal separation. Muscles become weaker when stretched or separated, which puts women at increased risk for low back pain.

Posture changes

Changes in your womb and growing baby can change your body's center of gravity. As a result, most women changed their posture. Often, pregnant women lean back, which puts extra stress on the back muscles, causing muscle stiffness and low back pain.
