Chiropractic Care for Postpartum Back Pain in Arlington TX

Back adjustmentDuring your pregnancy, our focus is helping you have the healthiest and most comfortable pregnancy while preparing your back and neck for the birth process. This is important because one of the most common complaints of moms in postpartum is what we call “mama back”!

Labor and delivery, particularly the pushing, can cause a significant amount of stress and tension in the neck and mid back that can linger after birth. You can also suffer symptoms from misalignments caused by sleeping with the baby on your chest or breastfeeding and bottle feeding while looking down at them for long periods. The awkward positioning for a good latch can also cause issues.

Chiropractic, both before and after delivery, can help you strengthen your body and provide realignment when necessary to alleviate back pain and discomfort.

How Adjustments Can Help Your Pain

Nothing works as well as a good spinal alignment session with your chiropractor. An adjustment reduces the stress and misalignments in your spine and nervous system, which not only helps with pain and fatigue in the “fourth trimester,” as we call it, but it will also help you heal more efficiently.

You may find that consistent chiropractic care also helps you enjoy a more restful sleep, experience less postpartum anxiety and fatigue, and it helps your body’s systems function better. You’ll be feeling yourself in no time and will be able to bounce back after pregnancy!

Other Tips for Thriving Postpartum

In addition to chiropractic care, there are a few other helpful tips to protect your nervous system, back and neck, and overall well-being following pregnancy. Always balance your carrying and holding tasks by using both sides equally. This can prevent asymmetry in your spine and help keep things balanced.

Be mindful of your posture, and use pillows to support you and your baby’s posture so you’re in the most neutral position possible. Try not to look down to one side for extended periods and incorporate postpartum exercises, like yoga, to strengthen your back.
