WHAT WE TREAT | Pre/Post-natal Pain
Make Your Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum Recovery as Smooth as Possible with Physical Therapy!
At Global Physical Therapy & Spine Specialists, we integrate techniques such as massage therapy and pelvic floor therapy to help make your pregnancy and delivery process as smooth as possible. It also makes sure that you reduce the amount of Pre/Post Natal Pain which makes it stand out.
With pregnancy, the body experiences many changes, including postural adjustments, increased load on the pelvic floor, and stretching and thickening of the ligaments. Changes such as these can cause back pain and pelvic floor issues. Muscle weakness may also lead to urinary incontinence and difficulty activating core muscles.
Though these are some of the more unpleasant parts of pregnancy, prenatal and postnatal treatments can help your body better prepare for the journey ahead. If you are an expectant mama or one who recently gave birth, don’t hesitate to contact Global Physical Therapy & Spine Specialists today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.
Do you relate to this Pre/Post Natal Pain?
During the delivery process, you may need to undergo a procedure that might result in a scar, such as a c-section or an episiotomy. These can cause restrictions in the myofascial system of the body. Our Grand Blanc and Flint, MI physical therapy practices use specific myofascial and scar-release techniques to eliminate these restrictions and prevent your myofascial system from being further compromised.
Some women might also suffer from diastasis recti, also known as abdominal separation. Diastasis recti can interfere with the strengthening of the abdomen muscles and cause the belly to “pooch.” Our therapists use the latest evidence-based clinical knowledge in the field to identify and treat this condition, even before your delivery.
Physical therapy can help you get your body back!
