Are You Expecting? Prepare For Your New Baby with prenatal and postnatal Rehab!
Are you expecting a child right now? Pregnancy is a joyful time for many women, but the body is going through a lot of changes as it grows into a new tiny person! Pregnant women experience changes in posture, higher amounts of pelvic floor stress, ligament stretching, and thickening.
These changes in the body can also create back discomfort and pelvic floor problems, as well as muscular weakness, which can lead to urinary incontinence and difficulty activating the core muscles.
Pregnancy is a normal part of life; nevertheless, prenatal and postnatal therapy may make it considerably more comfortable. We mix therapies like massage therapy and pelvic floor treatment at Joint Effort Physical Therapy to make pregnancy and delivery as easy as possible.
Several new mothers begin seeing a physical therapist within 6 weeks of giving birth, and some even sooner!
Our objective at our Colorado Springs, CO physical therapy clinic is to prepare your body for the trip ahead so that you can focus on preparing to welcome your new baby into this world.
Whether you are an expectant mother or one who has recently given birth, don’t hesitate to contact us at Joint Effort Physical Therapy today! We will help make your pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.
Common pregnancy pain problems
Joint Effort Physical Therapy can help mothers deal with pre and postnatal pains as their bodies experience the effects of pregnancy and childbirth.
Some of the most common symptoms that expecting or new mother’s experience are:
- Urinary or fecal incontinence
- Inability to fully empty the bladder
- Pain during sex
- Prolapse, or the sensation that the organs are “dropping”
These symptoms may seem worrisome at first, but the good news is that you have treatment available to relieve your pain and avoid it from coming back in the future if you are having these symptoms.
What about scarring after giving birth?
By including physical therapy in your prenatal and postnatal treatment, you will be better prepared for one of life’s most difficult challenges: giving birth and caring for a baby.
Scarring from episiotomies and C-sections is fairly prevalent during pregnancy. This might cause constraints in the body’s myofascial system. When you try to move, you may have a limited range of motion as well as unpleasant feelings and discomfort.
To eliminate these restrictions and avoid further weakening of the myofascial system, our Colorado Springs, CO physical therapists employ unique myofascial and scar-release procedures.
Diastasis recti, often known as abdominal separation, can occur in certain women. Diastasis recti can prevent stomach muscle strengthening and result in what some refer to as a “pooch” after pregnancy.
Our therapists can diagnose and treat your prenatal and postnatal pain using the strongest evidence-based clinical knowledge available!
We carry out our treatment plans with compassion, concern, and understanding, so you can be confident that no matter what stage of your pregnancy you are in, we will look after you and do everything possible to ensure the best possible outcome!
Physical therapy can make your pregnancy and delivery easier
Bringing a new life into the world is supposed to be a joyful and exciting time for you and your family. You’ve come to the right place for pain relief if you’re experiencing pre-or postnatal pain.
