Why Chiropractic Care is Good for Postpartum Moms

By Genevieve Cunningham

Being pregnant is tough. The body is changing, moods are swinging, and life is about to completely transform. But you know what else is tough? That period of time right after baby arrives. The dreaded postpartum months. Not only is feeling exhausted and a bit out of control suddenly a part of every day, but you also have to deal with getting the body back in shape. Even if snapping back to pre-baby form isn't top priority, you definitely want the body to feel better. If you’re a brand new or expectant mom, take a look at how adding chiropractic care to the postpartum routine can help boost health as soon as possible.

A Healthy Spine Helps With Faster Healing

There's plenty of healing happening after childbirth. The body has just been through something fairly traumatic, and it takes a while to get it back in working order. Fortunately a healthy spine helps to speed up this process. Because the spine is linked to the nervous system, and because this system communicates with other functions in the body, a healthy spine promotes efficient function everywhere in the body. Enhanced function gives the body a little boost, and this allows it to heal itself and bounce back without wasting precious energy in unnecessary places.

The Physical Support Might Be Appreciated

The core is going to be a little weak after the birth of that baby. While this is normal, it’s also normal to want a little support to make the transition easier. Chiropractors focus on the spine, and through this process they can promote strength in the back, which then helps to support the core. Will it give you back a six pack? No. But it might make you feel a little stronger and a little more stable in the midsection as the body heals.

Fewer Aches and More Sleep

You only thought the aches and pains were over! Unfortunately, many aches and pains stick around for a while after the baby is born. The body isn’t quite back to normal yet, and it's possible to still suffer from achy joints, headaches, and stiffness in the body. Chiropractic care might help to alleviate some of this discomfort, which then leads to more sleep. It’s a beautiful cycle that any new mom would be happy to enjoy throughout the tough days of newborn care.
