Chiropractic for Postpartum Back Pain
Chiropractic is a natural treatment option for postpartum back pain. During pregnancy, the body undergoes significant changes that can cause strain on the back, pelvis, and hips. Additionally, labour and delivery can further exacerbate these issues.
Chiropractors are trained to identify and correct misalignments in the spine and pelvis, which alleviates pain and improves overall function. The techniques we use are spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy, and focused exercises to help improve posture and strengthen the affected areas. We also assess and provide advice concerning movement patterns. There are many new and repetitive movement patterns adopted with a newborn, feeding, bending, lifting and carrying. It is really important to get these right in order to protect your posture, keeping you strong and energised for you and your little one.
