Pregnancy and delivery can put great stress on the body. Chiropractic care helps new mothers through pregnancy, delivery and postpartum stages of motherhood. Chiropractic care is all-natural and medication-free, so it’s safe for the mother and baby.
Pregnancy Chiropractic Care
For pregnant women, we use a method called the Webster technique. The Webster technique provides the following benefits to expectant mothers:
- Adjusts the position of the woman’s pelvis for optimal positioning during labor
- Helps relieve pressure on the back, shoulders, hips and neck
- Maximizes comfort for the mother
After the baby is born, many mothers have aches and pain, as well as great emotional and physical stress. Lack of sleep, discomfort during breast feeding, and recovery from childbirth itself can take its toll on a new mother’s body and spirit.
Our postpartum spinal adjustment helps speed healing for new mothers by doing the following:
- Alleviating muscle pain in the back, shoulders and hips
- Treating pain in the tailbone
- Regulating hormones
- Reducing stress
We also show new mothers how to perform stretches and exercises that can strengthen and tone muscles, which can increase personal comfort. Additionally, we advise new mothers on postpartum nutrition, to ensure that they have what they need for themselves. If you’re an expecting parent or full-time mom in the Pittsburgh area, schedule a consultation with us today.
