Bringing a new baby into the world is a very special time for moms and moms-to-be, but it can also bring new challenges as your body adapts to the big changes pregnancy and post- partum can bring.
At Kamloops Integrated Wellness we offer our clients pre and post-natal care for relief of symptoms and improved overall health and wellness.
Pregnancy can bring challenges at every stage, including hip or pelvis pain, lower back pain, neck stiffness and lack of sleep. Managing these symptoms for your changing body can be significantly improved with gentle chiropractic manipulations. We can help to relieve neck and upper back pain and align hips and pelvis. Some expectant moms also experience discomfort in their knees and feet as a result of the shifting weight and physical demands of pregnancy, which can also be addressed during a chiropractic appointment.
Some treatments we may use include:
- Soft tissue manipulation to ease muscle tension
- Adjustments to pelvis, hips or back
- Kinesiology taping to add stability as needed
- Customized at home exercise regimen
- Webster technique
Of course, we are always sure to use a soft approach that is safe for baby and comfortable for mom every step of the way.
Can your chiropractor help you prepare for birth?
In a word – yes! Chiropractic treatment can help to relieve tension, soothe aches and strains and align your pelvis in advance of your delivery. This can help your labour to go smoothly and allows you to feel both mentally and physically prepared when the time comes to bring your little one into the world.
Still on the fence about pre-natal chiropractic care? Give us a call for a consultation to see how we can safely help you diminish pain and discomfort while improving alignment and stability.
