Postnatal Chiropractic Care in Lakewood: For the Whole Family
Congratulations if you have just had a baby! Pregnancy and childbirth are miraculous processes that place enormous demands on a mother’s body. And that’s just the beginning! Postnatal body changes, caring for a new baby on very little sleep (in awkward postural positions), recovering from childbirth injury and finding drug-free pain relief treatment that doesn’t impact breastfeeding—It’s overwhelming for mom, baby and dad. Fortunately, your Lakewood chiropractor at Well Beings Chiropractic Family Health can help the whole family ease into this new phase of life with less stress, less pain and more joy.
Drug-Free Postnatal Care for Pain and Stress Relief
Postnatal chiropractic care is just as important for mom as prenatal chiropractic care:
- Pregnancy and childbirth reposition the sacral and pelvic bones as well as vertebrae in the lower back.
- Strained core muscles need re-toning to support healthy posture.
- Vaginal and C-section births can both come with pain, injury and recovery time.
- Feeding baby at all hours can lead to awkward posture that can cause back, neck, shoulder and arm pain.
- Lifting baby out of the crib, toting diaper bags and infant carriers and chasing a small child around can also cause injury if not done with correct ergonomics in mind—problems that can impact both mom and dad.
Your chiropractor can help your postnatal body adjust into correct posture and re-establish core strength so that your nervous system can function optimally. This empowers you to heal and have the energy you need to be present, calm and comfortable as your child grows. We can also guide you on correct ergonomics and posture for those daily tasks like lifting and feeding so you can avoid further injury and stay healthy.
Lakewood Chiropractor for Your Child too
Chiropractic care also provides safe, gentle, drug-free relief to help your child thrive as he or she grows. If your baby has colic, frequent ear or upper respiratory infections, torticollis or other common infant health problems, your chiropractor can gently provide welcome, effective relief. As your child learns how to walk, ride a bike and enjoy sports, your Lakewood chiropractor provides continuing care to prevent childhood scoliosis, deal with common injuries and can help your child learn how to practice proper posture so the nervous system can perform optimally for growth, development and good health.
While we know you are busy with caring for your new addition to the family, it’s also important to care for yourself. Your body is amazing and it has been through a lot. Balancing your nervous system through chiropractic care can also help you adapt to the stressors in your life.
