Postpartum Chiropractor Care

Having a child is one of the greatest joys in life, but it is also one of the most difficult and strenuous activities that a woman can go through. During pregnancy and after birth, your body is constantly changing, and with it, your chiropractic needs will change. The birthing process can be extremely difficult and puts a ton of strain on your entire body. Chiropractic care has long been recommended for women after they give birth, here are some of the best benefits.

 

Recover quicker

 

Pregnancy throws a lot of things out of whack in your body, as well as the actual birthing process. Most people can’t imagine things getting back to normal. Chiropractic care can correct any spine or pelvic abnormalities caused by pregnancy or birth.

 

Help with back issues that come with being a mom

 

Some women report back and or neck pain when breastfeeding or hauling a car seat around. As a new mother your baby is attached to your hip, and with incorrect posture, you may experience hip, neck, and back pain. New mothers are constantly looking down and leaning forward, putting stress on your neck and back you are not used to.

 

Pregnancy related sciatica

 

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is enflamed or pinched that send shooting pain down the lower back and legs. For a lot of people sciatica can be debilitating. New mothers are at increased risk of sciatica, so much so that there is a condition called pregnancy-related sciatica. Since chiropractic care does not use any drugs or invasive procedures, it is the perfect way to treat postpartum sciatica, especially for women who are breastfeeding.
