Postpartum Chiropractic Care
There is so much focus on having a healthy pregnancy and delivery, that we often neglect the importance of taking care of moms after birth. Specific postpartum care is essential for all women who have given birth.
Benefits of Postpartum Chiropractic Care
When performed by a chiropractor experienced in postpartum care, chiropractic adjustments can help to shorten the healing time and decrease the physical stress of being a new mom. This is an essential part of postpartum healing. New moms will experience more comfort, better sleep and most importantly and increased ability to heal.
Postpartum visits are best scheduled within the first week or two after birth. The sooner we restore pelvic alignment, the faster your healing will begin! I also recommend an evaluation of the newborn during the postpartum visit. The birth process is not only hard on the mother’s body, it can be a strenuous event for the baby as well. A newborn spinal evaluation helps to make sure that the delicate structures are in optimal position after delivery. I offer a complimentary newborn evaluation during the mother’s first postpartum appointment.
