Pre and Post Natal: Helping New Mothers

Congratulations on your new little miracle. It is no exaggeration that as you go through pregnancy, your body will go through some major changes as the baby develops into a tiny little human being. Although everyone wishes to glide through pregnancy gracefully and easily, some women have increased discomfort while carrying a child such as extra soreness, aches and pains.

Physical therapy is great for pregnant women and can benefit both you and your baby, during and after your pregnancy. The weight of a growing infant can cause lower back pain, leg pain, postural shifts or it can bring on pre-existing musculoskeletal issues forward that were there before the baby and are now contributing to pain or discomfort.

Atlantic Spine Center places emphasis on the comfort of the mother and child by providing knowledgeable women’s health experts and modern techniques. We are equipped to handle your pregnancy discomforts for the smoothest delivery possible. Some of the common pregnancy conditions we handle include during and after pregnancy include:

  • Neck, mid to lower back pain
  • Rib and chest pain
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Knee and patella problems
  • Coccyx
  • Sacroiliac Joint Pain
  • DeQuervain’s Disease
  • Diastasis Recti abdominis
  • Tempomandibular joint pain
  • Piriformis syndrome

Some pregnant women also participate in our comprehensive prenatal and postnatal chiropractic care, massage therapy and pain management programs. Ask our board certified physician which programs are right for your needs.
