Pregnancy is a wonderful time in a woman’s life, but it can also cause some discomfort as your body changes.
Therapy can provide relief from the aches and pains of pregnancy. It treats the causes of pain to help relieve the strain on your body and make your pregnancy more enjoyable.
Low back pain
Sciatica – pain of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back down the back of each leg
Sacroiliac pain – can feel like a sharp jolt down the side of your back and hips and could extend to your legs
Pelvic pain – a feeling of stress and heaviness in the pelvic area – below your belly button and between your hips
Pubic Symphysis Separation/Pain – Pubic bone pain occurs later in pregnancy when hormones cause the pelvis to loosen to make delivery easier for mom and baby. Sometimes this separation can cause pain at the end of pregnancy or immediately after. If you have pubic symphysis separation, you may be able to hear your joints click as you walk or change position. You may also experience pain in the lower back, hips, pelvic region and legs.
The Partners In Rehab Pelvic Floor Dysfunction program can help to address the causes of pelvic pain during pregnancy and after delivery.
