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

Seriously, I walked in limping with a brace on my first day, and left feeling wonderful, and I kept improving after each visit!!! The exercises and attention from the therapists (Kelsey and Jamie) have helped me tremendously, which has enabled me to become more active than I have in a few years. I am truly grateful for their professionalism and attention to my individual need!! I’m HIGHLY recommend them!!

I had postpartum hip issue when I first came into RMPT. I’ve had physical therapy before but never believed in it. This time Jason took over my case and after 12 sessions I am back to 100%. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me. (Fort Collins-Central Clinic)
