Post-Mastectomy or Caesarean Operation
Not only can chiropractic care assist with neck and back pain issues, but our team at Wellness and Chiropractic Care can also help you recover following a surgery such as a mastectomy or c-section. These types of surgery can take a toll on the body. Keep reading to find out how we can help you in Brunswick ME.
How Can Chiropractic Care Help?
Following a mastectomy or c-section, the underlying muscles are dramatically weakened. These weakened core muscles cause an additional strain to be put on your back and spinal cord. When this happens, the muscles of the back can become overused and painful. As your body tries to compensate for the weakened muscles, the spine can slowly move out of alignment, causing even more problems.
Spinal adjustment and the Graston technique can be very helpful during this time to keep the spine properly aligned. Massage therapy can be helpful to relieve the tension in overworked back and neck muscles as well. Recovering from surgery can also be stressful. Massage therapy can help to relieve this stress.
What About Pain?
One of the challenges of recovering from surgery is the pain you will likely be experiencing. Pain following surgery is normal. It is imperative, however, that you find ways to relieve pain that is not entirely based upon medication. Pain medications can have harsh side effects and addictive qualities. Although pain medication may be a part of your pain management routine, you should have other tools available to you as well. Our team can help you find natural pain management solutions. These methods can be incorporated into your recovery plan.
Improve Your Overall Health and Wellness
Following your surgery, you will want a team behind you to help you obtain and maintain a new healthy life. A mastectomy is a life-altering surgery that will not only affect you physically but can also affect you emotionally. Learning how to move forward with strength and confidence will be essential to your long-term health. Our team can help you with exercises, nutrition plans, and stress management tools so that you can accomplish this. If you have recently undergone a c-section, you are embarking on a new phase in life as a mom. We want to help you along this journey. Being a healthy person is crucial to fulfilling your role as a new mother.
