Physical Therapy forMoms

Physical Therapy can help you have

  • A comfortable and physically fit Pregnancy

    • Many expecting mothers put up with back and pelvic pain, thinking it’s normal and will go away after childbirth.When pregnancy related aches and pains limit your ability to work, be social, or care for your family, physical therapy can help, sometimes even after the first visit.

  • A body physically prepared for Childbirth

    • Childbirth is one of the most strenuous events in a woman’s life.Learn exercises and stretches that will prepare your body for the marathon of labor and birth.  Prepared moms are less likely to have perineal injuries, long labors, incontinence and even diastasis recti abdominis (DRA).

  • A restored pelvic floor and core Postpartum

    • Physical Therapy after childbirth make sense.New moms should be given the opportunity to heal their strained pelvic floor and abdominal muscles.Even the American College of OB/GYN’s now recommends postpartum moms get PT to “physically recover from childbirth.”
