Do You have New Mother Posture?

  • Neck & Shoulders: The entire neck is often strained during pregnancy, and this strain continues all the way down to the Upper Shoulder Muscles of the Levator Scapula and Upper Trapezius. Treatment is down to undo the compensatory habits, making way for a more balanced musculoskeletal system.
  • Caved-in Shoulders: This is a postural consequence of having weak shoulder stabilizers as well as overused pectoral muscles during pregnancy and also during breastfeeding.
  • Hiked Hips: While treating the entire back during our Mother-Roasting Protocol, we will definitely treat hiked hips when we see them.
