Chiropractic Care for the New Mom

By Donna Stark

Congratulations! After making it through the entire pregnancy and the first few weeks at home, things are finally starting to run like a well-oiled machine. The baby is on a schedule, your family is adapting to the baby's schedule, and everyone is pitching in when help is needed. You did good, Mom, you really did, but I bet you are wondering when your low back pain is going to cease, aren't you? It makes sense that your back would hurt when you were carrying around that extra weight, but that's not the issue anymore. So what is? And when are you going finally get some relief?

Chiropractic Care for the New Mom

Taking care of your little one is a lot of work, and that hard work can often bring added stress and strain to your body. If back pain is trying to override all of the joy that comes along with baby, it's time to head on in to see your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic. Take a look at some of the benefits that chiropractic care can bring to your life.

  • Speeds recovery
  • Places your spine and pelvis in proper alignment
  • Reduces neck and back pain
  • Restores energy and quality sleep
  • Reduces mood swings, stress, and anxiety
  • Boosts your immune system
  • Reduces muscle fatigue
  • Reduces muscle spasm
  • Alleviates headaches

Health Tips for the New Mom

In addition to receiving regular chiropractic care after a pregnancy, it's also important that you maintain healthy habits at home. Check out the following tips.

  • Exercise - Get back to your daily exercise but only after your doctor says it is OK to do so. Take your time and start out slowly. Light yoga, low-impact exercises, and stretching are great options to begin with.
  • Proper lifting - Be sure to lift with your legs when picking your child up out of the crib or high chair. Bend at your knees, tighten your core muscles, keep your baby close to your chest, and avoid any twisting in the process.
  • Holding baby - It may feel awkward at first, but try using a front carrier when walking or shopping with your baby to reduce the risk of muscle strain. And remember to be intentional with your posture, whether you are standing or sitting!
  • Using baby equipment - Give your back a break! Take advantage of all those items you got at your baby shower and let something else hold your baby while you rest! Swings, strollers, bassinets ... they were all designed so that moms can catch a break, so use them!
