Here at Rehab Dynamics we are a team of women and we know how important it is for women to take care of themselves. There are several treatments specific to women that our PTs specialize in including: pre/post partum, scar treatment of mastectomy or cesarean section, incontinence problems and more.
If you are pregnant ask your OBGYN for a referral to start physical therapy. After an extensive initial evaluation, your physical therapist will develop a plan that addresses your specific needs.
If you are pregnancy therapy at RD may include manual therapy techniques along with an exercise and stretching program. Manual therapy can help to relieve low back pain or any other discomfort you may be experiencing during or after pregnancy. We also offer massage therapy and personal training.
Women who exercise regularly during pregnancy could have multiple positive benefits including:
- Reduced fat deposition and retention
- Less weight gain during pregnancy
- Fewer symptoms common to pregnancy
- Shorter and less complicated labors
- Lower cesarean section rate
- Quicker postpartum recovery
In addition, maintaining muscle strength and endurance helps to support additional weight gain, and postural changes that occur during pregnancy.
“I was having significant pain and bladder problems 6 months after the delivery of my daughter. Kelly was incredibly knowledgeable and helped my pain significantly. A bonus was that my C-section scar was hardly detectable after treatment!” -Mary K.
