Pregnancy and Backpain
Elite Physical Therapists are trained in treating spinal and pelvic disorders associated with pregnancy. This includes pelvic floor stability and strength, spinal mobilizations, postural correction, abdominal and lumbar strength and maintaining the appropriate strength to tolerate the changes in your center of gravity with the baby. We are able to control pain in most cases to allow for a much more comfortable pregnancy. Most lumbar and pelvic pain associated with pregnancy is mechanically based pain, and your PT is able to identify the cause and relieve the stress from the dysfunction.
We will also work with women to recover back to pre-pregnancy strength and tone. Your PT will guide you safely through your recovery process by giving you appropriate exercises at the right time in healing to regain your pre-pregnancy “shape” and strength.
