Postpartum care in Sterling

Chiropractic care after childbirth can assist new mothers in their recovery by providing support during the various physical changes their bodies are undergoing. This care can facilitate a faster healing process, enabling the mother to better enjoy this new phase. We incorporate BIRTHFIT®  exercises with Chiropractic care to re-gain strength post childbirth.

Post Delivery

Delivery is a transformative event that places unique demands on a mother’s body, and it is important to address any discomfort and imbalances that may result from this process. During delivery, the hormone relaxin is released, allowing for the necessary expansion of the pelvis and ligaments to facilitate the safe passage of the baby. This hormone remains in the body for several months as the mother’s body readjusts to its pre-pregnancy state. However, misalignment of the pelvis and spine can cause discomfort and even chronic pain, particularly in the neck, upper back, low back, and sciatica regions, which are commonly experienced by expectant mothers. 

Our office places a strong emphasis on caring for expectant mothers and addressing any discomfort they may experience during this delicate time.

Gentle Adjustments for Moms and Babies

We modify and utilize soft pillows to make it easier to lay on the table for an adjustment. We utilize low force techniques to ensure each mom feels comfortable. Delivery process is just as stressful on mom as it is on a baby, even when labor and delivery is completely natural and without intervention. Often times difficulties that arise during feedings are related to misalignments in the upper spine of an infant as well as stress and tension related to the birthing process. Gentle adjustments (no more pressure than you can tolerate on eyelid comfortably) can make huge changes to a baby’s ability to grow, develop, and adapt to its new surroundings. 

Dr. Khan was to support new moms and ensure they feel and function at their best. Taking care for a new baby is challenging, and quite stressful. It is important new mothers feel listened to and supported. We work with other providers in the birthing community, such as lactation consultants, pelvic floor physical therapist and postpartum doulas, who can further support a new mothers thrive during the postpartum journey!

Chiropractic care is gentle, safe and effective for new mothers can help a new mom adapt to the challenges of motherhood so can enjoy all the joys a new baby brings.
