Whether you’re a new mama, or you’ve been around the block a few times, visiting a chiropractor can do wonders for your quality of life in many ways.
Take it from Dr. Holly, who recently became a new mama herself! Meet the newest addition to the QCHC family, Eleanor Joy Loveless:
(Isn’t she lovely? We think so!)
We’ve seen our fair share of mamas here in the office, and they all have a story about how chiropractic care has changed their life. If you’re a mom who’s considering a visit to a Charlotte chiropractor, but are on the fence, then please read on for the many reasons why every mom should be seeing a D.C. on the regular.
Reason #1: To realign your spine, post-pregnancy. This applies, whether you just recently gave birth, or you gave birth several years ago. The impact of birth on a woman’s body is undeniable. Even more so is the impact on the baby that just made his or her way through the birth canal! No doubt your spine was knocked out of alignment and it could be having all sorts of effects on the rest of your body’s organs. If you’re experiencing symptoms such as headaches, back pain, digestive problems, hormonal issues, or even autoimmune conditions, we’ve got news for you. These are all things that regular Charlotte chiropractic care can address!
A chiropractor can take an X-ray and do an examination of your spine to determine what needs to happen going forward to put things back in the right place. Whether you just had a baby or you’ve been a mama for years, contact us to schedule an initial consultation. We’ve worked on adults and children of all ages, including newborn babes.
Reason #2: To improve your immune system function. It’s no secret that kids are like tiny germ factories. Who knows what they’re bringing home from daycare or school? Better to be safe than sorry…
Many people are surprised to learn that chiropractic care aids in immune system function. Most think it’s just for back or neck pain. If you’re wondering how a visit to the chiropractor can actually keep you and your kids from getting sick, here’s the lowdown:
Basically, your spine is the central hub for your nervous system which regulates all of your bodily functions. Your spine sends nerve signals out to your organs telling them what to do, and when there is compression on any of your vertebrae, those signals get weaker. Weakened signals means weaker function overall. So if your spine is unable to fully communicate with the organs that regulate your body’s immune function, you’re likely to get sick more often.
We see a lot of parents and children at Queen City Health Center when they’re feeling “under the weather.” You’ll be surprised how fast a couple of adjustments can work to get them feeling 100% their best again!

Reason #3: To lower your stress levels. Let’s face it. Being a mama ain’t easy. In fact, it’s really hard at times. If you’re a new mom, you’ll need to keep your stress levels down so your body can produce milk for your babe. And if you’re a mom of teens or toddlers (a.k.a. “three-nagers”), it’s easy to lose your cool. Keeping your stress levels in check is a must, since stress affects your immune system function. You don’t want to get sick every time your kids stress you out, right?
Chiropractic care is known to help alleviate stress. A series of adjustments can not only make you feel better right away, but produce more of those “feel-good” hormones that will keep you feeling your best for days afterwards. Many of our patients report better sleep and less stress after a visit to our office.
Reason #4: To lose weight. After carrying a baby (or several babies), our bodies definitely change. Losing weight and staying fit can help you boost and retain your confidence, which in turn can positively affect your relationships with your spouse and children as well as the way you relate to them and how you parent.
If your’e a mom in Charlotte NC, and you’ve been struggling to lose that post-pregnancy baby weight, chiropractic care can help. Each adjustment releases hormones that combat stress and can help you lose those LBs. In addition, our doctors specialize in holistic treatments that also incorporate nutrition and fitness counseling.
