High-quality Posture-related Advice

Pregnant women’s bodies adapt to different postures throughout and after pregnancy. They have a different posture when walking and another when breastfeeding the baby. Picking the baby up from its crib necessitates a different one. And when hunching over the toilet bowl after a bout of early morning nausea, it’s a different posture.

If a person stays in an unnatural position for too long, they’ll almost always experience pain. The pain typically results from many small, repetitive strain injuries.

Restores the Body’s Normal Biomechanics

As the baby grows, its mother gains weight appreciably. Her body will experience substantially increased pressure in different areas. There’s pressure in the back, in the hips, in the spinal column — everywhere. The center of gravity shifts forward and the person’s overall gait changes as well. At that point, the body’s biomechanics are out-of-whack. If the situation stays uncorrected, the patient could face a range of health-related issues with long-term consequences. After childbirth, make sure to have a  chiropractor examine your ligaments before they tighten. If ligaments are allowed to tighten up before an expert realigns them, issues could crop up down the road.

It Encourages Quicker Post-pregnancy Healing

Being pregnant is tough, and childbirth is even tougher. Postpartum life isn’t any easier. That’s why seeing a chiropractor during and after pregnancy is critical. The body needs time and a bit of training if it’s to get back to its regular condition quickly. And that’s where quality postpartum chiropractic care enters into the equation.

The postpartum healing process involves a number of different parts trying to resume their normal functioning. The spinal column needs attention, and so does the rest of the central nervous system.

A chiropractor understands the crucial role the spine and brain play in getting the body functioning normally and back in shape. With that knowledge in mind, they leverage their skills and expertise to quicken postpartum healing. They focus on realigning the spine; kicking into gear the body’s self-healing process.

New moms and other moms who’ve worked with our specialists know that chiropractic care can help postpartum rehabilitation. Dr Hawker provide’s both chiropractic and nutritional advice so your body can heal even more quickly. 

Helps Treat Sciatica

If the lower part of your spine has problems, you’ll likely experience what chiropractors call sciatica. Nerve compression in the lower spine causes this situation. Some of the symptoms you may experience include pain in the lower back as well as in the legs. The pain felt in the legs is a numbing or tingling sensation, and it needs quick attention.

Sciatica typically happens during pregnancy rather than after. The baby’s increasing weight coupled with the expansion of the mom’s uterus causes the compression that leads to sciatica. However, sciatica can also happen postpartum. Why? Because the expansion of the uterus doesn’t cease after the baby is born.

Dr Hawker manipulate’s the patient’s body before and after childbirth, encouraging it to launch the self-healing process.

Relieves Pain

Pregnant women experience all kinds of pain before and after childbirth. While all women encounter pain, new moms seem to suffer more. The patient endures lots of discomfort and pain in the neck and shoulder blades. Neck and shoulder pains often lead to bothersome headaches.

Add all these pains to the mother’s staying up all night because the baby won’t stop crying. What do you get? You have an exhausted mom who craves rest and sanity.
