Pregnancy and New Mothers
Pregnancy and childbirth will take its toll on your body’s muscles, joints, and organs. But physical therapy – an often-overlooked part of a new mother’s care – can prepare your body for pregnancy, minimize pain and discomfort while pregnant, and prevent or treat post-natal conditions.
Therapy can help you pre- and post-natal for the following conditions
Diastasis Recti (manual, visceral, taping, coordination with exercises)
Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD)
Low back pain with or without Sciatica
Pain from C-section or episiotomy
Decreased control of bowels or bladder
Pelvic Floor pressure/pain
Learn how to use your body efficiently while being a new caretaker
