New Parent Pain: A Chiropractor Can Help
By Genevieve Cunningham
Being a new parent is so hard. The crying, the lack of sleep, the aches and pains. Itâ€™s one of the toughest times of your adult life! While the biggest part of this phase of life is simply waiting it out until baby gets bigger, there may be a few things that you can do to make the experience a little better. If you need a little boost in your health to help you get through new parent panic, take a look at why you should visit the chiropractor today.
That Baby Is Heavy
You think that a baby is going to be light â€¦ but they definitely are not! They may not feel heavy for the first week or so, but as baby gains weight, youâ€™ll definitely feel the strain. This can create pain and tension in the back and neck, and since baby isnâ€™t likely getting any lighter, this is unlikely to change anytime soon. Chiropractors may be able to remove restrictions from the vertebrae of the spine, thus eliminating pain and improving strength and posture. If baby is too heavy, the chiropractor may help take a load off.
Youâ€™re Incredibly Exhausted
Donâ€™t even pretend like youâ€™re not tired. A new baby means mom and dad get very little -- if any! -- in the way of sleep. Chiropractors canâ€™t make the baby sleep through the night, but they may be able to eliminate any insomnia in your body as well as make the body more comfortable. And the more comfortable your body, the easier itâ€™s going to be to fall asleep at night and stay that way for as long as baby will let you.
All That Bending Hurts
You bend to pick baby up. You bend to change a diaper. You bend to put them in the swing or the bouncer or the playpen. With baby comes a lot of bending and stooping, and this can definitely lead to back discomfort. Since chiropractors are already known for their ability to eliminate back pain, let them help you now, when the back pain is at its worst. It might make the entire newborn experience easier to take and much more comfortable.
