Physical Therapy During Pregnancy
Physical Therapists at Montvale Health & Wellness are experts in the care of the pregnancy-related pain.
During pregnancy, a period of rapid changes and development, hormonal changes, the laxity of connective ligaments, and shifting of weight-bearing structures, may cause many pregnant women to experience low back pain.
In fact, the number of pregnant women who experience back pain is reported to be somewhere between 50 to 70%. In addition to back pain, pregnant women may be prone to other conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle spasms and sciatica.
Massage, strength and flexibility exercises and physical modalities are well-equipped to address the issues of pregnancy discomfort. In fact, with physical therapy, women often report satisfaction in the relief of lower back pain.
At Montvale Health & Wellness, our physical therapists can also assist with education for home exercises and adaptations for pain relief for both pre- and post-birth.
