Why You'll Need a Chiropractor Post Baby
By Genevieve Cunningham
You did it. You suffered through nine miserable months, gained weight like a pro, and brought a brand new little person into the world. It’s time to feel like yourself again, right? If only. The entire process of pregnancy and childbirth is hard, and it definitely takes a toll on the body. By the time that little one has made their grand entrance, you’re more than ready to have at least some part of your old life … and your old body … back to yourself. If you’ve just entered, or are about to enter, that tough post-baby period of life, take a look at how getting chiropractic care might make it just a little bit easier.
Chiropractic Care Can Help Healing
The body is going to feel a little out of whack after baby arrives. Don’t worry though. It took nine months for the body to adjust, and it may take just as long for it to adjust back. But chiropractic care may speed up the process or make it more efficient. How? As chiropractors eliminate joint restriction in the spine, it enhances various systems in the body and their general function. When everything is working better individually, they are able to work better as a whole, and your body may begin to heal and return to normal just a bit more quickly.
It Might Enhance Quality of Sleep
Please take note that this did not say that you would actually get MORE sleep. The chiropractor can’t make the baby sleep for longer stretches any more than you can. But it might significantly enhance the sleep that you are getting. Reducing joint restriction often means reducing pain and general discomfort as well. And the more comfortable the body, the easier it is to fall and stay asleep. Even if you’re only getting a few hours a night, make sure those hours are good by getting regular chiropractic care.
It Might Help Boost Moods
Lack of sleep, a crying baby, and visitors popping in unannounced. Chances are good that you’re going to be a little grumpy after finally coming home. But the good news is that the better the body feels, the less of this bad mood you have to deal with. If your poor moods are out of control, seek the help of a professional. But if your poor moods are a result of body discomfort and lack of sleep, getting to the chiropractor may help quite a bit.
