Learn how to modify fitness activities you already love or start a fitness routine that is safe and achievable for a busy life with a new baby.

Postpartum Pain, Incontinence, or Prolapse?
Don't put up with back and pelvic pain, thinking it will just go away or worse, a normal part of your postpartum life.
When postpartum-related aches and pains limit your ability to work, be social, or care for your family, PT can help, even after the first visit.
While a referral from your doctor or midwife is encouraged, it is not required to start physical therapy in the state of Florida. Most insurances will reimburse the cost of treatment.
