How New Moms Can Benefit From Chiropractic Care



Having a baby for the first time can be an exciting but stressful change for new moms. During your pregnancy, physical changes can happen fast, and aches and pains after delivery are unlikely to go away overnight. Unexpected back pain or neck pain can be frustrating to deal with while also raising an infant, but there are ways to manage your pain and get back to feeling your best. An expert chiropractor can help you get to the bottom of the issue and work with you on a plan to address your symptoms and correct the pain.

Sources of Pain During Pregnancy

As your body changes throughout and after pregnancy, aches and pains are a common complaint. At Motus Integrative Health, our team will work with you to help you stay comfortable throughout these changes. According to the American Pregnancy Association, chiropractic care is a safe treatment for expecting mothers. Seeing a chiropractor can help reduce pain during pregnancy, and many even be able to improve symptoms like nausea.

Pain during pregnancy can result from a variety of sources as your body goes through such sudden changes. Hormonal changes as you prepare for delivery cause the ligaments and joints to loosen, which can contribute to back pain during and after the fact. Additionally, you are carrying a significant amount of extra weight as you grow another person, and that weight is not evenly distributed. Seeing a chiropractor throughout your pregnancy will help you keep comfortable and address physical stress until the time comes to welcome your new baby.

Aches and Pains After Delivery

After pregnancy, there can be additional pains to address. Even regular activities can lead to soreness over time. For instance, carrying a growing infant around the house or slouching while breastfeeding can strain your neck and back. 

Like many other sources of back pain, rest, light exercise, and good posture can help. Try to keep your back straight and bend at the knees when picking up your baby, and find a comfortable way to sit while feeding him or her. In many cases, this will prevent a lot of discomfort. However, if the aches and pains you are experiencing are persistent, it’s a good idea to address your concerns with a professional. 

Chiropractic Care for Pain Relief

If you are pregnant or have recently given birth, managing aches and pains can be integral as you recover and try to keep your stress levels low. Seeing a chiropractor is a safe and effective way to address your symptoms. If you are looking for a pain management method that doesn’t require additional medication, chiropractic care may be able to help.
