Recovering and rehabilitation from childbirth is an important part of your postpartum period. Unfortunately, many women feel as though they have been thrown into their postpartum period without guidance. Postpartum women are frequently left to navigate their own recovery with only a 6-week postpartum appointment. Your 6-week postpartum appointment should be the BARE MINIMUM and it should compliment a multitude of other assessments, further education, manual therapy and appropriate exercise.
A woman's body is forever changed postpartum and that can be a scary, yet empowering time for a new mother. Postpartum women deserve better guidance and care from their healthcare providers and we are here to do just that!
The aches and pains of pregnancy may be in your past, but new symptoms and complaints can present themselves. Common postpartum complaints include: low back pain, hip pain, pelvic girdle pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, core dysfunction, urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA). Many of these complaints have been deemed "normal" by other healthcare providers, but here at Pinnacle Hill Chiropractic we believe that normal and common are 2 very different things. Dr. Sarah and her postpartum patients will also discuss postpartum hormones, postpartum mental health, postpartum thyroid dysfunction, returning to exercise and much more!
Every woman is different, just like every birth is different. It is important for women AND providers to understand that a "cookie cutter" approach to recovery is inappropriate in most instances. An individualized treatment plan that involves, assessment, education, manual therapy and exercise is essential to promote intentional recovery. This is how Dr. Sarah will approach recovery with her postpartum patients. Everything you go through in the office will be 100% tailored to you. Treatment will continue to change as mom continues to progress through her postpartum period. Dr. Sarah recommends seeking specialized postpartum chiropractic care as soon as 2 weeks postpartum.
PSA: Moms, please do not Google how to recover postpartum and please do not rely on generalized programs that are not specific to you, your needs and your experience.
Dr. Sarah has taken a multitude of continuing education courses and completed extensive training in postpartum care and movement. She specializes in prenatal and postpartum chiropractic care, in addition to individualized postpartum recovery and rehabilitation. She has also continued to educate herself outside of the chiropractic field. She has recently taken an 8-week class that has educated her further on how to externally diagnose pelvic floor dysfunction in pregnant and postpartum women. Dr. Sarah has been trained by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA), BIRTHFIT Inc., Herman & Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute, ICE Physical Therapy and Julie Wiebe, PT. Dr. Sarah also ensures that she works closely with her patient's other team members, including their OBs, midwives, physical therapists, and coaches.
