Physical Therapy for the Pregnant Patient

Most women present with pain during some point in their pregnancy due to:

· Postural changes (increased cervical/lumbar lordosis and thoracic kyphosis)

· Lengthening of abdominal and pelvic floor tissues

· Increased weight

Physical Therapy can help pregnant women who are experiencing pain.  At Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy we have experienced PT’s to work with your pregnant patients. 

Therapy may consists of:

· Teaching safe core stabilization exercises to optimize posture

· Manual therapy to decrease soft tissue restriction and improve pelvic alignment

· Education on safe exercises and on what to avoid

· Recommendations on appropriate pregnancy support belts

· Aquatic therapy

I completed a six week internship with RMPT, part of which I was with Rob in the Loveland office. Rob is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring DPT. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning the trade from him. I highly recommend this office for your physical therapy needs. -Chelsey, Loveland (Google Review 5stars)


I recently completed a six week internship with RMPT. I spent most of it with Amie and Jess in the Windsor clinic. They both are extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and well rounded. I highly recommended using RMPT for all of your therapy needs. Chelsey, Windsor (Google Review 5stars)
