What does a post-partum chiropractic visit to Active Care look like?
What Can I Expect?
Active Care is a practice designed to welcome you as family, from the first step on your journey to achieving your health goals.
When you enter our Arlington Heights office, you become family.
After a thorough intake and examination, we will discuss your goals which brought you into our family practice. We honor and partner with you to meet you where you are in your postpartum journey. We hold space for your to share your birth story, especially the first visit after you deliver.
This story is honored as it is shared in the safe space we create together. Chiropractic adjustments are performed on specific areas for your symptoms and findings from the examination to help your body heal with your transformed body.
Diastasis recti assessments and core function evaluations are performed. Specific rehabilitation exercises are prescribed, demonstrated, and performed in the office to ensure you understand your “homework” in between visits in our office.
We develop a compassionate relationship over time and help shift the mentality of getting your “pre-baby body back” to metamorphing into the new and improved version of yourself that is revealed in the motherhood process.
- Most insurances accepted
- We open early and stay open late during the week and have weekend hours to accommodate even the busiest schedules.
Create the new and improved version of you!
Chiropractic care and postpartum rehab provide many benefits for overall health and recovery after your baby is born.
As hormonal changes continue in your body, chiropractic adjustments help to allow the pelvis and spine to realign and function optimally.
We help with you with easy rehabilitation exercises help you to regain strength and function what you feel was lost during pregnancy and labor.
