Pre & Post Natal Pain
Make Your Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum Recovery as Smooth as Possible with Physical Therapy!
At Houghton Physical Therapy, we integrate techniques such as massage therapy and pregnancy specific exercise therapy to help make your pregnancy and delivery process as smooth as possible.
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 Houghton Physical Therapy today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.
Do you relate to this?
During pregnancy women might 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” leading to continued back pain after delivery. 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!
Houghton Physical Therapy can help mothers deal with pre and postnatal pains as their bodies experience the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Our Attleboro, MA physical therapists will also help in addressing any problems that may arise during this exciting time.
By including physical therapy in your prenatal and postnatal care, you can be better prepared for one of the biggest challenges in your life: delivering and caring for a baby. You don’t need to suffer before or after delivery. Contact us today to schedule an appointment, and we’ll create a plan to help you along in your pregnancy.
