Carmel & Greenwood Pelvic Pain and Pregnancy

Pregnancy and physical therapy

Back pain, constipation, pelvic discomfort and pressure, urinary leaking, difficulty sleeping due to pain, pain with transitioning from sitting to standing or lying to sitting, pubic symphysis pain, leg pain, pain affecting your ability to walk……………………

These are just a few of the symptoms that can be present during pregnancy and a large majority of women report one or more of these ailments throughout their pregnancy.   Women often believe that there is nothing that can be done to decrease or eliminate their pain as they are often told by their medical providers “once you have your baby the pain will subside.”  Significant physical changes occur to a woman’s body during pregnancy and fortunately women’s health physical therapy (WHPT) can eliminate or significantly decrease your pain during pregnancy.  The therapists at Restore Your Core Physical Therapy regularly treat pregnancy related dysfunction and will assist you with managing the musculoskeletal changes throughout your pregnancy.
