Benefits of Chiropractic Care After Pregnancy

Pregnancy and childbirth are physical events that require a long recovery period. Whether your birth was a vaginal or C-section, the pelvic floor muscles must heal and the body needs time to shift back to its natural alignment.

Chiropractic after pregnancy helps to restore your body’s function, correct any misalignments that may have occurred during pregnancy and care for the baby, and provide support as you transition into motherhood.

One of the biggest benefits of chiropractic care after pregnancy is that it can help to reduce pain. It is a safe and effective way to relieve pain that is caused by hormone changes, musculoskeletal issues, subluxations (misalignments of the spine), and nerve interference.

The best time to get adjusted is within 6 weeks of giving birth, but adjustments can be made at any point in the postpartum period, as long as your body is still releasing relaxin. Because relaxin has a softening effect on the body, this allows the chiropractor to more quickly correct structural changes and remove nerve interference.

Relieving aches and pains during all stages of motherhood:

Many new moms experience aches and pains after giving birth that are not related to their baby’s development. These aches and pains are often a result of the body’s natural response to stress in a time when sleep is difficult and adjusting to new routines can be overwhelming.

Relieving musculoskeletal stress and imbalances after pregnancy:

Many women have trouble sleeping during pregnancy, especially when they experience nausea or early morning sickness. This can cause a lot of stress on the body, and can lead to aches and pains in the neck, lower back, and shoulders. Chiropractors can teach you how to avoid these pains and discomforts by teaching you proper sleep postures that support your spine, and reduce tension throughout your entire body.
