Postnatal Chiropractic Care with our San Diego Chiropractor

One of the most difficult things that occur after giving birth is finding time for yourself. As a new mother, your days and nights are spent with your newborn. Between the frequent feedings, diaper changes and baths, being a mother to a newborn can be exciting, but also extremely overwhelming and stressful, so it is important that you get some “me time” in. Getting postnatal chiropractor care in San Diego is very beneficial for relaxing as well as helping to relieve various symptoms related to postnatal pain and discomfort. Here are just a few of the benefits you can expect from our San Diego chiropractor that offers postnatal chiropractic care.

Visiting a Chiropractor Helps with Pelvic Alignments

Usually, the pelvic girdle helps to keep your body balanced; it ensures that the weight of your upper body is in line with your lower body. However, during pregnancy, your body makes accommodations for the baby growing in your womb, during this time. Hormones are released that allow the bones around pelvis area to become loose, which ensures the pelvis will expand so the baby fits through the birth canal during delivery.  Unfortunately, this hormone can also cause leaks, instability and weaken your pelvic and back muscles, resulting in excessive pain, following the delivery of your baby. Pregnancy chiropractic San Diego can help to fix the imbalance that contributes to your pain and the posture changes that have resulted from giving birth.

Helps to Reduce Postpartum Depression

Giving birth provides mothers with a certain joy; however, some mothers may find it difficult to cope with the pain that comes with giving birth. Whether the birth was cesarian or vaginal, both can be extremely painful. Other changes in the body, such as hormonal changes, may cause a change in mood. Your body may also not be used to the lack of sleep, which can causes changes in the way your mind and your body functions. A chiropractic clinic in San Diego that sees pregnant and postnatal pregnant woman can recommend various natural treatments to deal with postpartum depression, such as getting postnatal massages or changing your diet to include more healthy foods that encourage the release of beneficial hormones.

The extra weight of pregnancy may also lead to sciatica. The most common signs of sciatica include numbness and pain in the legs. In many situations, new mothers suffering the pain and discomfort of sciatica can find natural relief with a spinal adjustment from our chiropractor in San Diego CA.

Visiting your chiropractor can be extremely beneficial to the wide range of changes that occur with your body before, during, and after pregnancy.

  • "Regular visits with Dr. Roeder have significantly reduced the frequency of migraines I have suffered and the amount of neck and shoulder pain I have lived with for years. Because of Dr. Roeder I am able to focus on my busy life again"
    S.L., San Diego
  • "This was my first encounter with a chiropractor and found the experience to be delightful, gratifying and well worth it! Instead of being given a bunch of pills and told to come back next week, the manipulation for my back and side injuries including carpal tunnel syndrome, responded very well to the treatments. Thank you, Dr. Roeder for a job well done"

  • "I came in originally for neck pain, but getting adjusted helped lower my blood pressure & my insulin levels too.Dr. Roeder is so thorough in her care-I never knew how much better I could feel.I no longer have to take blood pressure medicine now."

  • "Since meeting Dr. Roeder at a health seminar, she has changed my life, drastically-improving my health 100%. I had a wide range of symptoms, including chronic fatigue, constant and severe headaches, body aches, nausea, difficulty concentrating and I felt extremely tired and weak. She diagnosed me with having Fibromyalgia and Candida. She put me on an anti-inflammatory diet and started me on chiropractic treatment and instructed me on strength exercises. I have lost 40 lbs and feel fantastic! Whenever I eat something that sets off a symptom, I can identify the food source now. I know how to eat well and stay away from foods that cause inflammation. Had it not been for Dr. Roeder's expert care, I believe I would still be suffering from all those symptoms-- instead I feel fantastic!"

  • "My son was diagnosed at a very young age with Hyperkyphosis. The doctor told us that surgery would be his only option but we needed to wait until he got older.My husband and I were heartbroken to think about such a major surgery for our little boy.We wanted to help him anyway we could without doing surgery. We are so thrilled to say that after seeing Dr. Roeder my son's back has made a major improvement.That there is a stronger chance that he may not need surgery after all.My son is three now and he is a very active little boy and you can't even tell that he had ever had a bad back.He is able to do what all little boys do:run, jump and climb!Taking my son to Dr. Roeder was the best decision that me and my husband have made as parents.I am so happy that Dr. Roeder is part of our lives.In fact all of my extended family members are patients of her too!Thank you so much Dr. Roeder for all of your help.You have been such a positive part of our lives.You are part of our family."

  • "My daughter has been diagnosed with Von Willabrand's and Precocious Puberty at age 7. She had her first period at age 8, and it was for three days. The doctors said that her hormone levels were off and there wasn't any truly safe treatment. After talking to Dr. Roeder, she started chiropractic care to help her body cope better with this disorder and hopefully change her hormones. Now my daughter and I have been told by doctors at Children's Hospital that it looks like she won't be starting her period until two years from now-this will be the normal time when she should start! They told us to keep up the good work of whatever we have been doing because it seems to be working."
    J.H., San Diego
  • "I got treated for a neck and back injury that appeared to be chronic following a major car accident. I had been to chiropractors before but without much success.After seeing Dr. Roeder now though, my mobility and general feeling of well-being has greatly improved."
    C.H., San Diego
  • "Dr. Roeder was recommended by a friend and I am completely satisfied. I was having low back pain also some neck pain. My back feels better than it has in years. I feel Dr. Roeder is complete in recommending exercising and treatment!"

  • "I just wanted to say thank you for making me 'new' again. Also, for helping us through our tough times. You always have been nice to us and helpful when we were in your office-it was just like a second home! Every time I walked through the door I felt calm and relaxed. You always asked us how we were doing and how we have been. I thought that was very thoughtful and caring of you-especially considering that awful car accident we had been in. None of my doctors before had been as courteous as you. You have really made a bad experience into a great experience in a blink of an eye. I always loved that EVERYONE was always smiling! I wish that when I grow up I can be like you, always making people happy and feel better! Well, I think that you just made another patient happy because of your wonderful 'magic.' Oh and I know I already said this but I think I am speaking for everyone when I say: Thank you Dr. Roeder!"
