Low Back & Hip Pain During Pregnancy

Changes during pregnancy can lead to back and hip pain. A growing baby, and changes in hormones and muscles and joints around baby can lead to pain. We offer postural education, hands on therapies, and gentle exercises to encourage muscle coordination and support. For some, a “baby bra” fitting helps.

Post-baby Reconditioning

Postural issues and pain are frustrating for some new moms. Physical therapy helps you to manage pain and postural problems, and gives real-life, practical solutions to caring for a newborn.

Chronic Constipation

For some women, chronic constipation is a lifelong issue. For others, it is related to medication, changes in lifestyle or schedule, or even surgery. Chronic constipation is often observed along with back pain and urinary issues. Physical therapy is a conservative and effective treatment option for constipation and focuses on education, establishing a routine, and improving pelvic floor muscle dysfunction that often contributes to constipation issues.

Urinary Health

Women often think urinary leaking and bladder problems are a normal part of aging and having babies. We’re happy to say its not. Physical therapy for bladder issues helps you to improve pelvic floor muscle coordination, strength, and overall pelvic balance. This can include core strength, and spinal and pelvic alignment.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis symptoms vary woman to woman. We offer treatment that focuses on alleviating your pain and then on related concerns that might be contributing to pain. We also explore nervous system hypersensitivity as a critical piece to improving your overall daily activities.

Pelvic pain is often related to postural problems or an injury. Physical therapy can be helpful in restoring balance to the pelvic region by addressing muscle incoordination and weakness, spinal and pelvic joint alignment issues, and soft tissue restrictions.

Pain & Sex

Pain during sex can be the result of many things. We’ll explore if your pain is related to pelvic floor muscle tension or spasms, soft tissue restriction or scar tissue, or a musculoskeletal problems. Treatment is geared toward improving overall pelvic floor coordination through specialized manual techniques.

Urinary Health

Women often think urinary leaking is a normal part of aging, menopause, and having babies. We’re happy to say its not. Physical therapy for bladder issues helps you to improve pelvic floor muscle coordination, strength, and overall pelvic balance. This can include core strength, and spinal and pelvic alignment.

Post-gynecologic/abdominal surgery

It can be difficult to get back to normal daily function for some women following gynecologic or abdominal surgery due to ongoing pain, movement restriction related to tight scar tissue or tight muscles, weak core muscles, and pelvic floor incoordination. Physical therapists who specialize in working with women are trained to address these specific issues and will design a program that helps women ease back into their daily lives at a pace that is appropriate for them.
