Pregnancy Pain and Physical Therapy
Updated: Jun 18
Pregnancy can be blissful and care free, or some women start to develop musculoskletal problems such as pelvic pain, back pain, hip pain, and bladder pain. Our national organization has links explaining pregnancy related physical therapy, and specifically pelvic pain, check it out: https://www.womenshealthpta.org/patients
Here is a direct quote from a recent systematic review of Physical exercise during pregnancy, Nascimento, S, Surita, F, and Cecatti J, Current Opinion, http://www.co-obgyn.com, Lippincot Williams and Wilkens; “Exercises during pregnancy are associated with higher cardiorespiratory fitness, prevention of urinary incontinence and low back pain, reduced symptoms of depression, gestational weight gain control, and for cases of gestational diabetes, reduced number of women who required insulin.”
The trouble with musculoskletal pain is, it may limit your ability to participate in activities of daily living as well as fitness programs. Feel free to call for a complimentary question and answer as you may need,I often provide yoga and pilates exercises adapted for therapeutic purposes, to make programs fun and mind body spirit engaged.
All the best to you,stay fit and functional,
