Chiropractic Care for Breastfeeding Troubles

mom kissing newbornAs a chiropractic office, one question we hear often from mothers is “how can chiropractic care help with breastfeeding?” The answer may surprise you – there are actually several ways in which chiropractic care can improve breastfeeding for both mother and baby.

First, let’s talk about the mother. Many new mothers experience discomfort and pain in their upper back and neck while breastfeeding, especially if they are spending long periods of time looking down at their baby. Chiropractic care can help to correct subluxations in this area, which can improve posture and help mothers to feel more comfortable. In addition, chiropractic care can also address any rib subluxations that may be contributing to discomfort or difficulty breathing.

But what about the baby? As mentioned, the birth process can cause subluxations in the neck, which can make it difficult for babies to latch onto the nipple comfortably. By addressing these subluxations, chiropractic care can help to improve the latch and make breastfeeding more comfortable for both Mother and Baby. In addition, chiropractic care can also help babies to sleep better, have better digestion, and generally thrive better, which can be beneficial for the entire family.
