Prenatal and Postnatal Care at BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle
Adding a new member of the family may be the most exciting event you could imagine, but it's not without its physical challenges. Pregnancy is notorious for causing its share of discomfort, while bouncing back from those life-changing 9 months can be harder than you might expect. Here at BAC To Health Chiropractic Lifestyle in West Los Angeles, also serving Brentwood area, we can help you through both stages of this amazing journey through our safe, natural prenatal and postnatal care services.
Prenatal Care for a Healthier, More Comfortable Pregnancy
The three trimesters of pregnancy introduce some major changes to your body, especially as the fetus grows and your abdomen grows with it. Your body compensates for this change by leaning backward, which creates strain on your lower back muscles and impinges nerve function. Low back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other muscular headaches are a common result. Nerve impingement may also create symptoms such as tingling, numbness, or pain in your lower extremities. As you get closer to your delivery date, your pelvic ligaments loosen in preparation for the birth. This necessary change can make your spinal alignment even more unstable and can interfere with the baby's ability to turn upside-down in the womb, it might even produce a breech birth.
Our prenatal care program can help you feel better and maintain a higher level of overall health throughout your pregnancy. Our chiropractor in West LA and Brentwood area, Dr. Sherman, knows how to administer gentle adjustments that are perfectly safe for both you and your child. These adjustments can help your nervous system function more normally while also correcting alignment errors that might imperil your delivery. The healthier you are, the more your baby will benefit from your well-being.
Postnatal Care to Help You Recover
Even a picture-perfect birth can still leave your body in a state of considerable imbalance and discomfort for some time afterward. Your spinal alignment may have been shifted out of alignment again during delivery, causing muscular aches and pains to linger. As a new mom, you may also find yourself adopting new and unbalanced positions when carrying or nursing your baby. Postnatal chiropractic care can ease this transitional discomfort and help your body recuperate from the birth event more quickly and easily. Your tissues may also benefit from other techniques such as hydrotherapy massage and laser therapy.
