Osteopractic after childbirth: the rapid recovery of a young mother
The birth of a child is the happiest moment in the life of every woman, so many mommies believe that nothing can darken him. However, as practice shows, many problems after childbirth do not pass: the body does not return to normal, the woman feels constantly unwell. What are the reasons? Let's try to figure it out.
How will osteopractic help after childbirth?
Probably, you have repeatedly heard that pregnancy and childbirth is an opportunity to renew the body. However, this is not quite true. For 9 months of carrying a child, the female body is under tremendous pressure, all internal reserves are lost. What can we say about labor activity, where there is a high risk of receiving a serious physiological injury that will become a “black mark” on a woman’s health. Under what pathologies will osteopractic help?
Taz.Ovaries in the last stages of pregnancy begin to actively produce the hormone relaxin, which helps soften articular cartilage and ligaments. Due to this, the pelvis becomes more mobile, as the joints of the pelvic bones become mobility. This facilitates the passage of the child through the birth canal of a woman. However, often the pelvic bones are too much displaced, and then fixed in an unnatural position. This leads to a distortion of the pelvis, the displacement of the sacrum, internal organs, as well as a decrease in the tone of the muscles of the pelvis. What are the consequences of these changes? Close and remote complications in the form of:
- Painful sensation in the region of the pubic symphysis, sacrum or lower back.
- Arthrosis of the hip joints and the ileal-sacral articulation.
- Pain in the lower limbs.
- Spine.During pregnancy, the pressure on the lower part of the spine sharply increases, which leads to the convergence of the vertebrae and their forward deflection.This causes the muscles to contract sharply, which causes nagging sensations in the back and sharp pains. During labor, in particular, during exertion, tension in the spinal column increases, which leads to muscle spasm, restriction of joint movements, compression of blood vessels and nerve roots. The result is a violation of the functions of the organs that feed on the affected blood vessels and nerve endings.
Organs of the digestive tract and urinary system.The growing uterus changes the position of the internal organs of the bladder, stomach, intestines, liver and diaphragm. This leads to the appearance in pregnant women of such unpleasant symptoms as: shortness of breath, frequent urge to urinate, gas, heaviness after eating. After the birth, the organs occupy a normal position, but sometimes the tension of the fascias (protective shells) is observed, which reduces the mobility of the abdominal organs. This leads to more serious consequences:
- constipation and hemorrhoids;
- violation of the outflow of bile;
- low back pain caused by pathologies of the kidneys;
- intestinal prolapse;
- kidney prolapse;
- Uterus and appendages.Displacement of organs and overstretching of the uterus muscles can cause poor blood supply to the tissues, which causes menstrual disorders, severe pain in the lower abdomen, painful sexual acts, inflammatory processes in the appendages. Also a very large impact on the health of a woman has a cesarean section, after which there is a high risk of developing adhesions in the pelvis. The worst consequence is infertility.
- Endocrine system.Hormonal background, which changes dramatically after childbirth, is one of the factors that increases the load on the nervous and endocrine systems.Therefore, many young mommies face such an unpleasant problem as postpartum depression.
Of course, the above problems are not found in all young moms. However, it would not be superfluous for any woman to consult a specialist in the field of osteopathy, even if the birth was normal and physiological. After all, good health after childbirth is not always a confirmation of the fact that the body did not fail at the cellular level, which can lead to more serious consequences in the long term.
