Postpartum Recovery

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.

Postpartum Chiropractic Care in San Diego

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.
