More than two-thirds of women are expected to suffer from muscular back pain at some time during pregnancy, yet the advice is to avoid ibuprofen and to take the lowest dose of paracetamol for the shortest duration possible. As such, Deep Freeze can offer a drug-free topical approach to pain relief, says manufacturer Mentholatum.

When cold therapy is applied, it activates receptors in the skin, which send signals to the brain to dilute the pain and bring relief. It also causes the blood vessels to constrict, helping to limit infl ammation, explains Mentholatum. Deep Freeze is available in a gel or cold patch to combat muscular pain associated with pregnancy, as well as sports injuries, sprains and joint pain.
