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 pregnant, 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.
Postpartum treatment can include breakdown of scar tissue around the c-section. The scar tissue can adhere to internal organs causing pain or problems with the bladder.
Scar Treatment and Care
As a clinic with lymphedema therapists we see a large number of women undergoing treatment for various cancers, including breast cancer. At times, painful scar tissue can form around the mastectomy scar. Our therapists are skilled at helping breakdown this tissue in order to relieve pain and increase range of motion.
“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.
