Prenatal Physical Therapy
Ideal for every pregnant mama preparing for a vaginal delivery or cesarean birth. Whether you are 13 weeks or 35 weeks pregnant, it is never too late to benefit from prenatal physical therapy. You and your baby deserve an active, confident pregnancy! Many women believe you have to be experiencing pain or issues to go to physical therapy, however that couldn't be further from the truth--especially during pregnancy!
At your prenatal physical therapy visits, you will be assessed to find out:
How your inner core is working (diaphragm, deep abdominals, pelvic floor) and how to train it safely and effectively during pregnancy
How to prevent and treat common conditions that occur during pregnancy including: low back pain, pelvic pain, sacroiliac joint pain, urinary incontinence, pubic symphysis or tailbone pain, constipation, urinary frequency/urgency
How to prevent and treat various muscle imbalances common during pregnancy and how to improve your posture/alignment to reduce aches and pains
How to assess if you have a diastasis recti (ab separation) and how to treat it, modify exercises appropriately, etc.
How to help prevent or reduce tearing & exercises to open the hips/pelvis and relax the pelvic floor muscles
Breathing techniques to use during labor/pushing to decrease stress on the pelvic floor
Various birthing positions and how to practice preparing in these positions
How you can begin safely reconnecting, retraining, and restoring your core postpartum
Your treatment may include various forms of manual therapy (all external) including soft tissue mobilization or gentle joint mobilization, myofascial cupping therapy, and a home exercise program individualized to your specific needs!
