Pre and Post Natal Care
Chiropractic is a very effective, drug-free treatment for many pregnant females suffering with pregnancy related pain. Various low force techniques are utilized to help make an expecting mother and father more comfortable throughout their pregnancy. With the ever-changing body of a pregnant female, it can make enjoying the blessing of pregnancy very difficult.
Many mothers can be extremely stressed for a multitude of reasons, and if they are in pain, they may burden themselves with the notion that this pain is normal and nothing can be done. Expecting and lactating mothers are left feeling helpless, uncomfortable and in pain. Chiropractic care is a very safe way to ease the worries an expecting mother may be having without the use of medication.
Dr. Russo is a member of the International Chiropractic Pediat-ric Association (ICPA) and is certified in a special low force technique called the Webster Technique for aligning the pelvis which helps for ease of delivery. Dr. Russo also recommends and advises on nutrition and supplementation for increasing milk production for nursing mothers.
Post delivery, a mother's body has experienced numerous traumas which can result in incidents of arm, shoulder pain and weakness. This can be caused from pushing and muscle recruit- ment, making a nursing mothers' job more challenging to secure the infant while he/she is latching on.
Getting adjusted as soon as possible after delivery can help align the neck, shoulders, and upper back, allowing the mother to bond with her infant with out pain.
