Becoming a mother is one of the most joyous experiences of a woman’s life. However, the post-pregnancy period can be challenging. One common issue that new moms face is post-pregnancy pain. They may suffer from lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, or wrist pain caused by breastfeeding. If you’re struggling with post-pregnancy pain, Dr. Tyler Meier can help.
How can pregnancy and delivery cause pain in the neuro-musculoskeletal system?
Post-pregnancy pain in the neuro-musculoskeletal system often arises from the profound changes a woman’s body undergoes during pregnancy. The added weight and altered center of gravity can lead to postural adaptations, which in turn put additional stress on the spine and joints.
Hormonal changes also play a role, as they cause ligaments and joints to relax and can contribute to instability and discomfort post-delivery. Furthermore, the physical strain of labor and delivery, as well as repetitive activities like carrying the baby, bending, and nursing, can exacerbate pre-existing spinal conditions or create new stresses on the body. Dr. Tyler Meier has the expertise to address these conditions through chiropractic care.
At CorePosture Chiropractic, we understand that pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body, and it takes time and effort to recover from it. Dr. Tyler Meier and his team have years of experience treating post-pregnancy pain and helping women regain their health and wellness. Our goal is to help you find relief from pain, so you can focus on enjoying your new baby.
Understanding the Causes of Post-Pregnancy Pain
Pregnancy changes many things in a woman’s body, such as weight distribution, posture, and hormonal levels. These changes can cause various types of pain, such as lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and wrist pain. Pregnancy can also affect the alignment of your spine, leading to discomfort and pain.
Moreover, childbirth can put a lot of stress on your body and often cause damage to the pelvic floor musculature. This condition can lead to urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, and pain during sexual intercourse. However, post-pregnancy pain is treatable, and chiropractic care can help.

Recognizing Post-Pregnancy Pain Symptoms and Relief through Chiropractic BioPhysics®
It’s essential to be aware of the symptoms that signal post-pregnancy pain. Common indicators might include persistent lower back pain, exacerbated by movement or lifting, neck stiffness or headaches resulting from altered posture during breastfeeding, and wrist pain or numbness, possibly corresponding to carpal tunnel syndrome from holding your child. A distinct symptom can also be pelvic pain, which may reflect changes from childbirth.
At CorePosture Chiropractic, we understand these symptoms and utilize Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) to restore alignment and relieve pain. CBP can help correct the spinal misalignments that pregnancy and childbirth may have exacerbated. Through this targeted approach, our patients often experience relief from their symptoms, improved posture, and a return to normal, pain-free activity levels. Importantly, the individualized nature of CBP allows for treatments to be tailored to each mother’s specific concerns, promoting a more effective and efficient healing process.
Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) is a highly advanced, scientific, and proven chiropractic technique which corrects and restores your spine back to alignment. CBP combines standard chiropractic joint adjustment techniques with mirror-image exercises, which are designed to provide a “mirror image” (or opposite position) to the postural faults seen in patients. In post-pregnancy cases, these adjustments and exercises are particularly valuable in addressing the unique spinal distortions that may occur due to pregnancy and childbirth. With spinal traction, a gentle and sustained stretching force is applied to the spine with the goal of decompressing the intervertebral discs and reducing pressure on the nerves.
Mirror-image adjustments involve adjusting the body to bring about postural changes that are the direct opposite of the distortions present. For instance, if a postpartum patient is experiencing an exaggerated lower back curve (lumbar lordosis), mirror-image adjustments would be applied to reduce the curve and return the spine to a more neutral, comfortable position.
Spinal traction, on the other hand, uses mechanical force applied by hand or with specially designed traction tables to rehabilitate the spinal curve. This long-term correction technique is ideal in post-pregnancy patients whose ligaments and muscles have been overly stretched or strained, contributing to a misaligned spine. When combined, these features of CBP assist the spine in regaining its normal shape and function, which can significantly relieve pain and improve overall mobility for new mothers experiencing post-pregnancy discomfort.
