Prenatal / Postpartum Care

Prenatal / Postpartum Care

Much can be done to support the pregnant and postpartum woman. You do not have to live in pain just because you are pregnant. And you do not have to live with bladder leaking or weakness just because you had a baby. These are not normal conditions for anyone, whether or not you’ve had a baby. There are successful conservative interventions available through physical therapy to address pain and disability specifically related to pregnancy and childbirth. Conditions treated include:

  • Back and hip pain
  • Cesarean section healing and strengthening
  • Diastasis recti abdominis
  • Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
  • Incontinence (bowel or bladder)
  • Labor and delivery preparation
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pubic symphysis pain
  • Scar tissue management (Cesarean or perineal)
  • SI Joint pain
  • Vaginismus
  • Vulvodynia
