Prenatal and Postnatal Chiropractic Care Can Help
Prenatal chiropractic helps alleviate pregnancy symptoms. Postnatal chiropractic helps new mothers recover quickly.
If you are pregnant or a new mother, you know that pregnancy can dramatically affect your body. A weight gain of 25 to 45 pounds means extra pressure on your pelvis, lower back and hip joints. As the baby grows, the curvature of your lower back increases, placing extra strain on the spinal disks. All of this stress on your body can create pain and discomfort.
Prenatal chiropractic care can help alleviate this stress to the body; postnatal chiropractic care can help you recover from the changes undergone during pregnancy as quickly as possible.
During and After Your Pregnancy, You Might Suffer From:
• Lower back pain
• Shoulder pain
• Neck pain
• Foot and ankle pain
• Postural imbalances
The Benefits of Prenatal Chiropractic Care
If you already suffer from joint or low-back pain, pregnancy can make things worse. Many pregnant women have found that prenatal chiropractic adjustments offer relief from joint or back pain brought on by pregnancy. Dr. Marilyn Britton provides safe, gentle adjustments that will not only relieve your back pain but also help get your body in proper alignment for an easier birth.
The Benefits of Postnatal Chiropractic Care
In the first eight weeks following labor and delivery, pelvic ligaments that loosened during pregnancy will begin to tighten up. Chiropractic care, particularly Active Release Techniques, can help properly realign the bones of your pelvis. As your infant grows, you may carry him or her around on one hip or the other, causing imbalances in the body’s alignment. Postnatal chiropractic adjustments can help alleviate the resulting back, neck and shoulder pain.
