Post Partum Moms

Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful baby! You may have thought that once you were no longer carrying your baby on the inside that your “pregnancy” aches and pains would go away. But most likely, the underlying issues that contributed to pregnancy pain remain and are exacerbated by carrying baby on the outside, nursing postures and the hormone relaxin that hangs around (for up to 6 months for breastfeeding women).

At Barto Family Chiropractic, we understand how to help moms get back to feeling like their old selves again, even if your body won’t be “yours” for quite some time. It’s not easy being a mom these days, let us help you so you can better take care of those who matter most to you.

Should Women Continue To See A Chiropractor After Childbirth?

YES! The benefits of chiropractic care are widespread and effective for all sorts of different people. Postpartum women are just one of the many groups of people who benefit from chiropractic care.

There are many reasons why it is very valuable for women to see a chiropractor. Carrying extra weight in your abdomen or on your hip, when you are not use to it can strain your back fairly easily. In addition, during labor, as the baby descends through the birth canal, the bones of the pelvis must shift to allow passage, this is especially common if the baby was posterior. Regardless of the length of labor or size of baby though, misalignments of the spine and pelvis are common during labor and lead to dysfunction and decreased healing after the baby is born. A properly functioning nervous system will help you heal faster so you can be your best for the new addition in your life.
