Pre-Natal & Post Natal Therapy
The pregnancy term ranges between 38–40 weeks and is divided into three trimesters. In each trimester, the pregnant woman undergoes various physiological changes with resultant physical changes. These physical changes may reverse post-partum. However, an understanding of the pregnant body is crucial to adapt to its changing state.
In the prenatal stage, the most common pain discovered is lower back pain when carrying because of the extra weight. Our therapy includes techniques using relaxation, strengthening as well as stretching exercises. This is very important for women to seek out therapy if in pain or it can carry over to the postnatal stage.
Preventive physical therapy can help ensure the strength of the mother’s back by using many techniques. Treatments include exercise programs, tissue manipulation, and management strategies.
