Pregnancy and Postpartum
This amazing specialty also encompasses pregnancy and postpartum and all of the changes that come with this period of transition. Orthopaedic concerns (back pain, hip pain, groin pain etc.) do not have to be the norm. Pelvic floor dysfunction is common both pre and postpartum and should be addressed with hands on treatment and education to prepare for birth and recover from your birth. Establishing care with a Pelvic PT even if “nothing is wrong” is an important step in your pregnancy to learn how to prepare for not only birth but also the Fourth Trimester. Did you just have a baby and don’t have anyone to babysit? You are more than welcome to bring them to your appointment(s)!
Common Conditions Addressed by Pelvic PT
Urinary and/or fecal incontinence, painful sex, generalized pelvic pain, painful scarring, endometriosis, interstitial cystitis (IC), pelvic organ prolapse, diastasis recti, C-section incision dysfunction and pain, constipation, pain and/or scarring following gender affirming surgery and procedures, and much more. Please feel free to call and find out more.
