Pregnancy and Postpartum Care

Pregnancy can be one of the most exciting events in a woman’s life, but it can also be accompanied by some painful results. There’s no need, however, to just chalk it up to being pregnant when relief is possible.

Addressing the musculoskeletal components of pregnancy and postpartum issues, including incontinence, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction and prenatal joint/muscle dysfunction. Weakness, poor muscle coordination, abdominal strength or bladder habits may also contribute to musculoskeletal dysfunction.

After evaluating the muscles, joints and/or nerves contributing to pain we will recommend modifications of posture and review proper body mechanics, bowel and bladder habits. Other treatments include soft tissue massage, muscle energy techniques, stretching and core stabilization.
