Pre/Postnatal Pain Relief

Physical Therapy Can Help With a Smooth Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum Recovery

Suffering from Pre- or Post-Natal Pain? PT Can Help!

The body undergoes many changes with pregnancy. There are changes in posture, an increased weight load on the pelvic floor, and ligaments will thicken and stretch.

All of these changes happening in the body can cause immense back pain and pelvic floor problems. Urinary incontinence and difficulty activating core muscles are also potential problems caused by muscle weakness.

At Ellis Physical Therapy, we make sure to integrate techniques such as massage therapy and pelvic floor therapy to help make your pregnancy and delivery process as smooth as possible.

We know pregnancy is not always a walk in the park for everybody. There are undeniably some parts that are downright unpleasant. Prenatal and postnatal physical therapy treatments can help your body better prepare for the changes it’s about to go through.

It doesn’t matter if you are an expectant mother or one who recently gave birth, don’t hesitate to contact Ellis Physical Therapy in Idaho Falls today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.

Physical therapy can help new and expecting mothers

Ellis Physical Therapy can help mothers dealing with pre- and post-natal pains as their bodies go through the changes of pregnancy and childbirth. Our specialized Idaho Falls physical therapists can address many problems that might arise during this exciting time.

By opting to have physical therapy in your prenatal and postnatal care, you can be better prepared for one of the biggest challenges in life: delivering and taking care of your baby.

What can physical therapy prepare a mother for?

During the delivery process, you may need to undergo a c-section or episiotomy procedure. These that might result in a scar and can cause restrictions in the myofascial system of the body.

Our Idaho Falls physical therapy practice knows how to handle this condition. Our therapists use specific myofascial and scar-release techniques to eliminate these restrictions and prevent your myofascial system from being further compromised.

Some women might also suffer from diastasis recti, also known as abdominal separation. Diastasis recti can interfere with the strengthening of the abdomen muscles and cause the all-too-common “pooch” that many new mothers are afraid of having.

Ellis Physical Therapy physical therapists use the latest evidence-based clinical knowledge in the field to identify and treat this condition, even before your delivery. Rest assured that you’re in good hands! We want you to be as excited as possible about your little bundle of joy — not worrying about the aftermath of your delivery.

Pregnancy is hard enough – let Ellis Physical Therapy help you

There is no reason for you to suffer with painful conditions before or after your delivery. Our physical therapists are trained and licensed professionals who know how to handle a variety of pain conditions involving the pelvic floor and pregnancy. Contact us in Idaho Falls today to schedule an appointment, and we’ll create a plan to help you, both during and after your pregnancy.
