How Can I Benefit from Portpartum Physical Therapy?

Posted Jun 14 2012 12:00am

Women commonly experience uncomfortable symptoms, such as aches and pains in their back, hop, groin, and pelvic area, during and after pregnancy. While these symptoms are normal, they sometimes are a sign that something needs further attention. Furthermore, many women’s discomfort can be easily treated and prevent with physical therapy.

In order to prevent any major complications, postpartum therapy and pelvic floor physical therapists Oakland practice encourage women to discuss any painful symptoms with a specialist. Physical therapy techniques can greatly help prevent prolonged pain and discomfort. 

During a physical therapy session, the therapist works with the patient to determine the source of the pain and if the patient has limited movement in any areas. A combination of exercises is then used to restore proper body mechanics, posture, mobility, strength, function, and core strengthening. Patients are also encouraged to engage in a home exercise program in order to accelerate their recovery. 

Soft tissue techniques including pelvic mobilization and myofasical release are also used to heal and strengthen the connective tissue in the affected areas. Such therapies help relax the connective tissue so that painful symptoms are diminished.
