Holistic Postpartum Care from Our Eden Prairie Chiropractic Team
Pregnancy is one of the most life-changing experiences in a woman's life. Just because your pregnancy might have ended weeks, months, or even years ago doesn't necessarily mean your body has fully recovered. At Midwest Chiropractic, our Eden Prairie chiropractic staff loves helping prenatal and postpartum women rediscover the energetic, pain-free, and healthy body and mind that they deserve.
Common Health Conditions Affecting Postpartum Women
Going into pregnancy, most women are dealing with a lifetime of poor posture, dysfunctional or weak core muscles, and other challenges like stress, nutrient deficiencies, and sleep deprivation. These factors can enhance the biomechanical and hormonal changes that occur during pregnancy. Coming out of pregnancy, most women get a six-week check up with their doctor and that's about it. This means unaddressed health issues may persist for weeks or months to come.
Some of the most common postpartum issues we see among our female patients include:
- Stress incontinence (peeing when you sneeze, laugh, jump, pick up a child, etc.)
- Back pain
- Pelvic pain
- Pelvic floor dysfunction and pelvic organ prolapse
- Abdominal adhesions (especially following C-sections)
- Groin and hip pain
- Pain during sex
- Ab separation (diastasis recti)
- Shoulder and neck pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Fatigue and brain fog
- Gut and digestive problems
These issues are so common that many women think they're "normal" and struggle to just accept that this is what "mom life" is all about. But you can find relief from these frustrating issues, and you deserve to feel better about the body you're in.
