How can PT help?
The Therapists at Pro-Motion can easily treat many of the symptoms associated with the stresses of pregnancy, vaginal deliveries and C-sections. To help alleviate these discomforts we are able to implement a program that is designed for each individual and may include postural awareness/education, stretching and strengthening programs, soft tissue mobilization/myofascial release, breathing exercises, bladder education and pelvic floor strengthening. We take into consideration your current life style and fitness level to help you achieve your goals and promote a healthier, less stressful, more comfortable pregnancy. Doing so may lead to an easier labor, a speedier recovery, and less likelihood of postpartum pain or incontinence. All of this is performed in concurrence with your OB/GYN's care.
