Chiropractic Care Means Living Pain Free to Enjoy Your New Baby
New parents naturally focus all their efforts and energy on their newborn, making sure she’s well taken care of. Parenting is a full time job, requiring not only emotional strength but physical strength and durability for all the grueling demands a baby may have. Because of all the physical stresses moms and dads go through, it’s no surprise that so many complain of “falling apart” only a few short months into parenthood.
It’s not unusual for parents to begin complaining of headaches and fatigue only days into their newborn’s life. After all, lack of sleep and constant worry will do that to anyone. More serious complaints, however, such as back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and hip pain need to be addressed more expeditiously before turning into more serious matters.
Most new parents are by now familiar with all the chores and responsibilities that their bundle of joy requires. From feeding, bathing, changing and rocking her to sleep, to carrying around a heavy car seat, stroller and changing bags, caring for a baby is truly a feat for the strongest of men and women.
As anyone can imagine, all these activities begin affecting the body sooner or later, resulting in pain and a general sense of not being well. Of course this is normal, but what is not normal is living with such pain and risking the condition becoming more serious over time. Some parents may ignore this altogether and chalk it up to getting old, while others mask their symptoms by taking pain killers – both of which do nothing to address the root case of the discomfort.
Pain is generally caused by a spinal misalignment, where a small shift in the vertebrae caused by lifting, carrying and poor posture begins interfering with the delicate nerves that flow throughout our bodies. As time goes on, and if left untreated, such interference becomes more and more serious, causing not just pain, but other health issues concerning the vital organs. Remember, the nervous system isn’t just there to signal pain, but more importantly serves as a critical mechanism that dictates how every single cell functions. By not taking care of your nervous system, you are risking symptoms such as heart palpitations, respiratory issues, fatigue and digestive issues just to name a few.
