Postpartum is a time for recovery & healing. Pregnancy and birth can be difficult on the body & mind. After giving birth, a new mom must nourish her brain and body so she can best support her new baby & family.
During pregnancy, our bodies endure many physical changes. After giving birth, hormones dramatically change & we have major physiological shifts. The body goes from very loose & having laxity to becoming very tight & rigid. This is a critical time to ensure the pelvis & spine are in alignment.
Proper recovery is essential for the physical & mental function of a new mom. Postpartum Chiropractic Care is a fundamental component to healing & recovery.
The many physiological changes that occur during pregnancy revert during the Postpartum period. Many of these changes can create pain & dysfunction including:
"New Mom Neck"
"Band" of Low Back Pain
Misaligned Pelvis + Spine
Sacroiliac (SI) Pain
Pelvic Girdle Pain
Round Ligament Pain
Chest Pain/Breathing Difficulties
Numbness or Tingling in leg/arm
↓ Range of Motion
Pubic Symphysis Pain
The benefits of Postpartum Chiropractic Care are endless, below are a few of the advantages:
Communicating Nervous System
Alleviated Neck/Back Pain
↓ Sacroiliac Pain & Sciatica
↓ Pelvic Girdle & Round Ligament Pain
Relaxed Muscle Spasms
Alleviated Pubic Symphysis Pain
↑ Range of Motion
The goal of Postpartum Chiropractic care is to maintain constant communication between the brain and body, for optimal function & recovery for mom.
As a mother's body shifts from Pregnancy to Postpartum, the body becomes tight, therefore it's critical to ensure ideal alignment of the pelvis & spine. Misalignments or SUBLUXATIONS can irritate the surrounding nerves & attached soft tissue creating dysfunction & result in chronic issues of diastasis recti, pubic symphysis pain, incontinence, neck/back/pelvic pain, headaches, sciatica, pelvic girdle pain, numbness and more.
Postpartum Chiropractic care includes specific & gentle adjustments to the spine, pelvis and pubic region to ensure ideal healing & prevention of chronic ailments.
