Pregnancy is a wonderful and exciting time in your life, but the changes to your body can wreak havoc on your alignment. At Caring Hands Chiropractic, we account for everything that may help make your maternity—both pre and post-natal—easier and more comfortable.
The extra weight from your baby, and the displacement necessary to accommodate the baby, inevitably throws off your spinal alignment. This misalignment leads to many of the common ailments of pregnancy: sciatic pain, acute pain in your neck and shoulders, tension headaches, restlessness, even false carpal tunnel. But there is a solution.
Prenatal chiropractic therapy is a healthy way to relieve the aches, pains and stresses of pregnancy so you can enjoy this time and prepare for your baby’s arrival.
Both our chiropractic table and technique adjust to accommodate pregnant patients in every trimester. We can also advise you on how to stretch and exercise during pregnancy, even how to select proper clothing for your changing body.
Babies demand a lot from their mothers during the first year, so it is essential you recover quickly from pregnancy and labor. Our postnatal chiropractic care plan focuses on healing and nurturing your body so you can focus on caring for your new baby.
Postnatal chiropractic care can also alleviate any new stresses that childcare places upon your musculoskeletal system—picking them up out of their cribs, side-slinging them to perform daily tasks, lugging around their car seat.
Chiropractic and body therapy can relieve the after-effects of maternity, nourishing your body to be happier, healthier, and more relaxed. If you are experiencing any discomfort after delivery, please schedule an appointment today for a quick recovery.
But don’t ignore the needs of your newborn either. If you thought delivering a child was traumatic, imagine what your baby experienced. The trauma of labor and the stresses involved with using their bodies in the real world for the first time can lead to misalignment and pain, especially as their spines aren’t fully developed yet.
So, while you’re here, why not allow us to care for your infant as well, using only the gentlest of techniques (fingertips) to realign their bodies, helping your child grow naturally and healthily.
