Treatment for pregnancy related musculoskeletal symptoms & pelvic floor birth prep
Your body changes tremendously during pregnancy. Hormones, postural changes, and weight gain affect how you move and how you feel throughout all three trimesters. At Elevated Physical Therapy we are trained to treat orthopedic conditions and pelvic floor dysfunction related to pregnancy. From shoulder girdle and low back pain to leaking with exercise, we will work with you to have a more comfortable pregnancy.
The pelvic floor stretches 4x its normal length to birth your baby. We will teach you muscle release, breathing techniques and movement strategies based on your body and alignment to prepare your pelvic floor muscles to be in their most optimal state for labor and delivery. We will also teach you breathing strategies to help protect your pelvic floor muscles during the pushing phase of delivery.
