Here are 5 must-have back pain relief tips for women with big breasts

Having very big breasts can place excess weight on the chest and without adequate support from the surrounding muscles and the rest of the body, the weight of the breasts can cause severe pain. It's often hard to maintain good posture, and even lead to chronic back problems. The upper part of the spine is built to withstand a significant amount of weight and it acts as an anchor to the rib cage and supports the upper body. However, like with lower back pain, upper back pain is most often caused by strain on the muscles and ligaments from poor posture and repetitive motions. For women with very large breasts, it doesn't take hours spent hunched over a computer or a vigorous gym session to cause upper back pain. The sheer weight of their breasts alone can be enough to cause back pain, sometimes even leading to long-term chronic pain that lasts for months or years. Furthermore, women with particularly large breasts tend to feel self-conscious about the size of...

All about postpartum diastasis recti and how to get rid of it

If your stomach still looks pregnant months after giving birth, you might have a diastasis recti. Diastasis recti occurs when the 'rectus abdominis' muscles in your abdomen separate during pregnancy which leaves a gap that allows your belly to protrude outwards. What is postpartum diastasis recti? Your six-pack muscles are a pair of long, flat muscles that run vertically down each side of your abdomen. These muscles hold in your internal organs and stabilise the core. As your stomach grows during pregnancy, the connective tissue gets stretched out, allowing the rectus abdominis to pull apart and separate vertically down the middle. Sometimes the tissue heals, and the muscles come back together on their own after delivery when your hormone levels return to normal. However, if this doesn't happen in 3 to 6 months, you can end up with a gap that won't close without special treatment....

5 reasons you're not losing belly fat as quickly as you would like

The stomach can be one of the most stubborn areas to lose fat. Although, it's near impossible to magically lose belly fat in one go, a consistent lifestyle change coupled with a structured exercise routine and healthy diet will lead to weight-loss all over the body including the belly. Being overweight or obese can bring lots of health problems, and excessive belly fat is linked to increased risk of heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. It's the deepest layer of belly fat can pose most health risks because these visceral fat produces harmful hormone and substances. Ask anyone who has tried, losing belly fat isn't easy and takes a lot of patience and dedication. Essentially, fat around the belly occurs because of the same reason you get fat build-up anywhere on your body; when you’re consuming more energy than the body is using, it gets stored as fat.
