Pre/Postnatal Pain Relief
Allow for a Smooth Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum Recovery with Physical Therapy
Do You Have Pre- or Post-natal Pain? PT Can Help!
With pregnancy, the body experiences many changes, including postural adjustments, increased load on the pelvic floor, and stretching and thickening of the ligaments.
The many changes that your body goes through can cause back pain and pelvic floor issues. Muscle weakness may also lead to urinary incontinence and difficulty activating core muscles.
At Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy, we integrate techniques such as massage therapy and pelvic floor therapy to help make your pregnancy and delivery process as smooth as possible.
While there are undeniably some more unpleasant parts of pregnancy, prenatal and postnatal treatments can help your body better prepare for the journey ahead.
If you are an expectant mama or one who recently gave birth, don’t hesitate to contact Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.
How physical therapy can help new and soon-to-be mothers
Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy can help mothers deal with pre and postnatal pains as their bodies experience the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Our Colorado physical therapists will also help in addressing any problems that may arise during this exciting time.
Physical therapy for pregnancy consists of:
- Safe core stabilization exercises
- Optimized posture
- Improved pelvic alignment
- Education on safe exercises
- Manual therapy for tissue tension
- Water therapy
- Information on Pregnancy support belts
By including physical therapy in your prenatal and postnatal care, you can be better prepared for one of the biggest challenges in your life: delivering and caring for a baby.
Does this sound familiar?
During the delivery process, you may need to undergo a procedure that might result in a scar, such as a c-section or an episiotomy. These can cause restrictions in the myofascial system of the body.
Our Colorado physical therapy practice uses specific myofascial and scar-release techniques to eliminate these restrictions and prevent your myofascial system from being further compromised.
Some women might also suffer from diastasis recti, also known as abdominal separation. Diastasis recti can interfere with the strengthening of the abdomen muscles and cause the belly to “pooch.”
Our therapists use the latest evidence-based clinical knowledge in the field to identify and treat this condition, even before your delivery.
