Giving birth to a new life is very tough, but empowering in itself. And sometimes we face numerous events that might make the most remarkable achievement tougher than ever. Having undergone such trauma, by any couple, it is vital that you prepare for the aftermath in a fit and fruitful manner. Else, you might just make life strenuous for both yourselves, as well as the newborn baby.
In such situations, mothers are advised to take the guidance of a Chiropractor. A chiropractor for mothers helps to establish pelvic balance and alignment and improves mother/baby discomfort. Mothers, post-delivery, whether C-section or vaginal, have their pelvic biomechanics disfigured. These may cause discomfort for oneself while walking, nursing and sleeping, and in parental care such as breast-feeding, bottle- feeding or simply rocking the baby. The chiropractor uses manipulation, exercises and stretches to bring back pelvic balance.
But before considering a chiropractor, it is vital to know whether or not they have worked with pregnant women. And you might want to consider insurance coverage.
The three things that might help in the aftermath of a strenuous birth:
A Neurokinetic Therapy session:
Neurokinetic Therapy is a manual therapy that uses muscle testing which involves your movement patterns and focuses on the root of your weak point to eliminate the pain. In such a way of therapy, the emphasis on hands-on muscle testing ensures a quick diagnosis of the cause of pain or unease in the muscle which causes overcompensating for the weakness. An EMG experiment that measured the ability of different muscles in the upper arm and forearm was performed, the forearm was supinated. In this experiment, the biceps were inhibited and various muscles of the forearm were measured to see which one engaged to perform supination. In this case, the brachioradialis supinated the strongest.
Bright-side to Neurokinetic Therapy
Neurokinetic therapy excels in identifying the cause of pain and dysfunction, and gets rid of it with quite an ease and painlessly.
It initiates accurate form, so one can move painlessly.
It also helps build a base for executing further beneficial and trusted therapy.
Neurokinetic therapy to the benefit of:
People who are putting up with tenseness in their muscles are ecstatic about this method of therapy.
People who are suffering from long-term or unsettled pain.
And people who tend to use a lot of energy for things such as hiking, bicycling, dancing, weightlifting, etc.
The Active Release Technique (ART):
Active Release Technique (ART) focuses on the removal of fibrosis/adhesions, which is the result of an overload with repetitive use, relieving tissue tension via soft tissue method. Fibrosis/adhesions may often lead to tingling, numbness, aching, muscular weakness, etc. ART was developed and patented by Dr. P Michael Leahy, DC, CCSP, a doctor of chiropractic medicine. In 1985, his first work was documented under the title of Myofascial Release, though later was printed under the name Active Release Technique.
A bright side to Active Release Technique (ART):
The Active Release Technique cleans out scar tissues and adhesions in muscles improving the quality of life of patients.
It can treat the most common and painful sports injuries by treating muscle tension.
It also restores blood flow and improves range on the motion.
ART to the benefit of:
Patients having severe lower back pain.
People suffering from chronic neck pain.
Other people having shoulder strain, including a frozen shoulder. Tennis elbow, compressed nerves, etc.
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS):
Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS) focuses on achieving optimal muscle coordination with an approach in which the coordinated activity of segmental postural stability reinforces each and every purposeful movement. The human nervous system controls our posture and movement through establishing programs. The DNS approach brings supporting joints and segments into a much for functionally aligned positions.
The DNS treatment helps in improving stability, reducing pain, normalizing joints and muscles and improving your quality of life.
