Momma, how are YOU bringing self-care into 2024?


Moms, are you busy, stressed, and tired? Motherhood is an incredibly rewarding yet demanding journey. From sleepless nights to endless responsibilities, mothers often find themselves putting their children’s needs before their own. It’s natural for mothers to prioritize their children’s needs. But, it’s equally important to remember that self-care is not selfish, it’s a vital component of being an effective and nurturing mother. Let’s see why it’s so important for mothers to prioritize self-care, especially through chiropractic care.

How important is it for moms to care for themselves?

It’s crucial for moms to remember that caring for themselves is not a luxury but a necessity. Neglect in self-care leads to neglect in the care of others. It all starts within and then spreads outside. It is crucial for moms to care for themselves for:

  •  Physical health

A mother’s physical health directly impacts her ability to care for her children. Neglecting self-care can lead to fatigue, stress, and various health issues that may hinder the ability to be an active, engaged mother. When moms prioritize their physical health, they set an excellent example for their children.

  •  Mental health

When moms neglect their own mental health, it can lead to burnout, anxiety, and even depression, which can affect their relationship with children. Caring for their mental health allows moms to be more patient, understanding, and emotionally available to their children.’

  •  Leading by example

When a mom prioritizes self-care, she sets a powerful example for her children by demonstrating to their children the importance of self-care. This helps children grow up with the understanding that taking care of one’s well-being is not selfish but necessary for a fulfilling life.

Chiropractic care is a vital component of self-care

Prioritizing self-care, including seeking out chiropractic care, is not only a gift to the moms but also a gift to their children. Here’s how chiropractic care can specifically benefit moms:

  •  Reduce stress

Chiropractic adjustments stimulate the parasympathetic portion or the “relaxation” portion of our nervous system which releases tension in the body, providing a sense of relaxation and calm. This can be beneficial for mothers who are dealing with high-stress situations.

  •  Manage aches and pains

Pregnancy and childbirth can lead to various physical discomforts, including back pain, sciatica, and neck pain. Chiropractic adjustments can provide relief from these discomforts, allowing moms to move and function more comfortably.

  •   Improve sleep

Sleep is crucial for both moms and their children. Chiropractic care can help improve sleep patterns by regulating the nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments take the body out of the fight or flight stressed pattern, and activate the rest, digestion, and relaxation portion of our nervous system responsible for sleep.  

  • Improve posture

Lifting and carrying children, especially as they grow, can strain a mom’s body. Chiropractic adjustments can help moms correct posture problems and provide guidance on how to maintain it in their daily lives.

  • Support overall wellness

As women, we deserve to thrive in all aspects of our lives.Chiropractic care can improve the body’s overall functioning. It enhance the immune system, and contribute to a healthier and more active lifestyle, allowing mothers to engage fully with their children.
