Why do women need post-partum chiropractic care?
The role of a chiropractor in prenatal care is to establish pelvic balance and alignment, not only to reduce the mother/baby discomfort but also to allow the baby to be in the best position for delivery. When the pelvis is misaligned it may reduce the amount of room for the developing baby to be comfortable and they may seek out a less than optimal positioning for birth.
“Currently, the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout pregnancy. With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth, and the crisis and worry associated with breech and posterior presentations may be avoided altogether. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) and therefore results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.” Most expectant mothers state that they feel like they walk better because there is fluid motion in the hip joints (SI joints).
Right after you give birth, the last thing you may be thinking about is a visit to your chiropractor. However, often after birth, the mother’s pelvic biomechanics change – these changes can bring discomfort with walking, nursing and sleeping. Corrective Chiropractic can restore the pelvic balance with similar manipulation, exercises and stretches that were used in the prenatal care. It can also be beneficial to mobilize the thoracic region due to positions during breastfeeding, bottle feeding or simply rocking children. There is a tendency for new mothers to flex forward for long periods of time which can aggravate the mid back area. Carrying car seats with infants in them also alters biomechanics.
The most common conditions they treat are pregnancy-related sciatica or pelvic pain with walking, sitting and/or sleeping. Middle back pain in postnatal mothers can also be related to breast feeding, bottle feeding or simply rocking babies to sleep.

As giving birth is one of the most intense and sometimes difficult experiences women go through. Your hips just moved more than they ever have before! The rest of your body has worked really hard as you coped with contractions, lying in hospital beds, and pushing a baby out! Think of how tense your entire body was and how hard it worked throughout labor.
We want to help you understand why it is so important to get adjusted as soon as possible after giving birth.
1. You are doing all sorts of new, repetitive tasks: Constant breast feeding, carrying the baby, and lugging around a car seat, just to name a few!
2. Throughout your pregnancy, all of your ligaments slowly loosened up to accommodate your growing body.
3. Post-partum, those ligaments are tightening back up to help bring your body back together. Because ligaments do not get very much blood flow, this process can take up to 8 months!
Many women experience upper back pain and neck pain while trying to adapt to the new life tasks at hand. Regular adjustments are extremely valuable during the postnatal recovery phase. The more aligned your body is during this time, the healthier you will be as your body recovers.
Also remember that chiropractic care can help boost the immune system, and you want that to be as strong as possible to keep the baby safe and healthy. Always remember that at Corrective Chiropractic, we encourage you to bring in your bundle of joy so both of you can get adjusted.
We can help!
