Being pregnant and a mummy of a 14 month old, 2 dogs, a cat and a very active hubby, is it any wonder I get back ache? When I was asked to review the PosturePlast I couldn’t believe my luck and also the thought floated through my head “Why have I not tried something like this before?” I find it quite frustrating with pregnancy that I can’t take medication and/or put certain creams on my body, but this product is fine for pregnant women.
Its like the old saying goes “it does exactly what it says on the tin”, its a big large X plaster that helps to correct your posture and therefore help remove the back pain! I must admit I did feel a bit odd when I first put the big X plaster on my back, I almost felt like everyone could see it, because I was conscious of it on my body. But you soon get used to it being there, it has to be noticeable to some degree I suppose, otherwise it wouldn’t do its job > stopping you from twisting and bending into the wrong positions which hurt your back! Of course, when moving correctly and holding myself in the right positions, I did forget about it being on my back. Because the plaster is breathable, it didn’t make my back sweat, or itch, I always get itchy skin underneath plasters, especially when its somewhere like your back. So I was pleased that I didn’t have an itchy back for the time I was wearing it.
Have a look at PosturePlast’s website: http://www.postureplast.co.uk. They cost around £4 for a single pack, £14.40 for a 4 pack and £29 for a 10 pack.
No matter what the reason for your back pain, I would recommend the PosturePlast, they are great for everyone, including pregnant women like myself!
