After you give birth, you’re likely exhausted, sore, and incredibly emotional. While time will help each of those to some extent, chiropractic care after you give birth will help even more. The birthing process can be very intense, and the body often needs a little additional help in healing afterward. Chiropractic care invigorates your body’s natural healing abilities and helps you experience body restoration, revived energy levels, and hormone and emotional regulation.
While the birthing process is natural and normal, it can still be difficult on the baby. Baby’s heads are often twisted or pulled during delivery, leading to spinal misalignments that can result in colic, sleep problems, feeding problems, and more if not corrected. When a newborn’s spine is not cared for properly, they can experience the above issues within days, weeks, or months, but they can also experience balance problems, acid reflux, and behavioral problems later in life as well.
