Although it does not necessarily happen to every new mom, many mothers experience a lot of postpartum pain. It makes sense–your body has just undergone a major transformation to grow a new human and bring it the world. Of course your body may need help adjusting to this process. Neuromuscular adjustments, massages, and exercises can help new moms get rid of neck, pelvic, back pain. Chiropractic care can also help boost energy and improve sleep quality–a must to ensure you can function on the little amount of sleep you may get in the first months with your newborn.
Chiropractic therapy can do wonders for pregnant women and new moms suffering from postpartum-related pain. Pregnancy and post-pregnancy bring all types of physical and hormonal changes, including joint and back pain. Moreover, there is a strain on the pelvis region and spine as the baby grows inside a woman. These issues make the entire pregnancy uncomfortable. Some professional chiropractors are particularly trained to treat pregnant women and new moms.
For pregnant women, apart from the lumbar, thoracic, and pelvis area, chiropractic therapy can also help relieve nerve pain. Women feel stress and pressure on the sciatic nerve during pregnancy, which hampers a good night’s sleep. With the help of chiropractic alignments and exercises, pregnant women can sleep more soundly at night. Other than that, the therapy also helps in easing labor at the time of birth.
Postpartum chiropractic therapy can help women relieve all kinds of stress they go through during pregnancy, labor, and delivery. Gentle spinal adjustments can help both pregnant women and new moms. They can reduce misalignments, specifically in the lumbar and thoracic areas of the body. Correction of vertebrae and sacroiliac joint misalignments also does wonders to relax a new mom’s body.
