At Pregnancy Pain Relief we treat woman in what we like to call their fourth trimester. It is when after delivery, your body is trying to adjusted to the altered posture, weak and tight muscles, and the absence of the baby in your belly.
The spine and hip alignment using chiropractic adjustments aid beautifully in this process helping you bounce back. We also incorporate core re-strenghtening to tighten up the muscles that have been extended through the course of your pregnancy.
As far as when you can start our postpartum care, it varies depending on delivery and the treatments. If we are going to be doing core re-strenthening, we recommend 2-4 weeks after delivery for natural births and 4-6 weeks for c-sections. For the chiropractic treatments and massage, we have had women come in the day after delivery and we modify the adjustments to their comfort level.
