Perinatal chiropractic care at Denner Chiropractic & Performance, can help ensure a healthy pregnancy for both mother and baby.
Chiropractic care during the perinatal period focuses on addressing various issues such as pelvic instability or dysfunction, sciatica, functional strength and mobility, sacroiliac joint pain, neck pain and headaches.
As a result of these treatments it is possible to reduce labor time, decrease the need for medications during labor and delivery, and improve overall posture and comfort.
A study conducted by The Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapy found that pregnant women who received regular chiropractic care reported improved sleep quality, less morning sickness symptoms and an overall reduction in discomfort due to pregnancy-related ailments compared to those who did not receive regular chiropractic treatments.
Giving birth is one of the most challenging athletic events you'll ever experience.
It's pretty amazing when you think about it, but what's even crazier is that most don’t receive rehabilitation or treatment beforehand. Just like running a marathon, giving birth requires proper preparation.
And while it may seem like a no-brainer to train for a marathon, it's not always obvious that our bodies need the same kind of conditioning if not more for childbirth.
That's why it's essential to provide our bodies with the necessary rehab and training to be in the best possible condition before and after pregnancy. This can make a world of difference in terms of our physical health and well-being.
One effective way to prepare for childbirth is through functional movement progressions. These progressions can help optimize our body's movements and provide the support and strength we need.
You can think of delivery as a planned injury.
After any trauma or injury to our body, we need to take time to recover but we also need rehab to help build back the strength and mobility we once had.
The common norm today is just to wait until you are cleared for exercise at the 6-week mark and jump right back into the swing of things.
Unfortunately, this often leads to
- Nagging pains
- Chronic injuries
- Pelvic floor dysfunction
The 4-6 week mark is actually the time when we advise our patients to start the rehab process. This ensures we can slowly and safely build back the function of your body.
