Pre-Natal and Post-Partum Care

Ever wonder if manual therapy and physical therapy and its place in the life of a mommy-to-be? Pelvic floor therapy can be instrumental in preparing for a smoother vaginal delivery. If you plan to have a c-section, this kind of treatment can help prepare you for the challenges of post-operative life.

There are so many changes to the body during pregnancy that vary from woman to woman that can be addressed by a physical or pelvic floor therapist:

  • laxity and instability in the joints

  • gestational diabetes and swelling

  • difficulty breathing

  • rib pain

  • headaches caused by hormonal changes and tensions

  • numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers

  • hip and/or lower back pain

  • gastrointestinal changes and symptoms

  • reflux

​Post-Partum Care

What happens if you didn't seek care during pregnancy? That's no problem! We can still help. 

After both vaginal and C-section births, urination and defecation can be challenging, even for the years to follow. These concerns can be assessed and treated by a pelvic floor therapist to regain proper muscle control.


Diastasis recti is another common problem after pregnancy. This is when the abdominal muscles stretch out and tear. In severe cases, if left untreated, the intestines can protrude. 

We can also assist with challenges regarding simple movements that may be difficult post-partum such as getting out of bed and regaining a proper gait pattern.
