New Babies and Back Pain

Even though a newborn only weighs a few pounds, the positions a parent is in when holding and lifting their bundle of joy are some of the main causes of back pain. In addition, new parents must also carry heavy gear around to keep their baby happy and safe. Things like diaper bags, car seats, strollers, and portable cribs can wreak havoc on your body and have even been known to take a parent or two out!

Chiropractic Care for New Parents

If you want to stay healthy and strong, and don't want to miss any of your child's milestone moments, come in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. Regular chiropractic adjustments can reduce the risk of pain and alleviate any discomfort you may already be experiencing by correcting alignment issues, reducing inflammation, easing muscle tension and strain, and supporting proper posture. On top of that, your chiropractor may also share their favorite suggestions on how to modify your lifestyle, behaviors, and sleeping positions so pain has no way of ever entering the picture.

Don't Forget These Back-Friendly Tips

In addition to regular chiropractic adjustments, there are several things you can do at home to reduce the risk of back pain when your baby comes home. Take a look at a few of them below.

  • Use a chair with adequate lumbar support when holding and feeding your baby
  • Bend at your knees when lifting your baby from the floor, crib, stroller, or bassinet
  • Lower the sides of the crib instead of arching and reaching your body over them
  • Choose a backpack with wide straps for your diaper bag
  • Use proper form when lifting, carrying, and assembling the baby gear
  • Alternate sides when holding your baby
