From conception to pregnancy to postpartum, chiropractic care is beneficial during all of the stages. Chiropractic is a natural, drug-free way to keep your body healthy, functioning optimally and has some particular benefits for pregnant women. Studies show that chiropractic during pregnancy can be a factor for an easier, less traumatic delivery process for both the mother and the newborn child.
The nature of chiropractic care is to reduce aches and pains without potentially harmful medications and as a result, is a natural fit for prenatal care. Many local OB’s, doulas and midwifes refer to our office because they are pleased with the outcome their patients have had with us.
At our office, we have special tables that can accommodate pregnant patients growing bellies for ultimate comfort all throughout pregnancy. Regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy can help ensure a healthier and more pleasant pregnancy, labor and birth.
After pregnancy, the mothers care is often forgotten due to demands of having a newborn. People with issues brought on by pregnancy such as tailbone pain, pelvic floor weakness and persisting low back pain, often find lasting relief from postpartum chiropractic care.
Other complaints that arise during postpartum like the daily demands of newborn care and/or breastfeeding, puts significant stress on the upper body. At A Family Chiropractic, we believe that chiropractic care is essential for post-partum recovery. Gentle manipulation, muscle work and guided stretching and exercise can be used to help restore muscle balance, strength and coordination to the body.
