Pre/Postnatal Pain Relief
Make Your Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum Recovery as Smooth as Possible with Physical Therapy!
At Total Function Physical Therapy, we integrate techniques such as soft tissue mobilization and pelvic floor 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 Total Function Physical Therapy PC today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.
Do you relate to this?
During the delivery process, you may need to undergo a procedure that might result in a scar, such as a c-section. These can cause restrictions in the myofascial system of the body. Our Physical Therapists use specific soft tissue mobilization 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 their clinical knowledge in the field to identify and treat this condition, even before your delivery.
Physical therapy can help you get your body back!
Total Function Physical Therapy can help mothers deal with pre and postnatal pains as their bodies experience the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Our Colorado Springs physical therapists will also help in addressing any problems that may arise during this exciting time.
What we don’t do:
Or biofeedback regarding bladder or bowel control.
But there is a lot we can do from the outside.
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 at Colorado Springs, CO Center to schedule an appointment, and we’ll create a plan to help you along with your pregnancy.
