Therapy For Pregnant Women Experiencing Back Pain
Sovereign Rehabilitation specializes in therapy for pregnant women who are experiencing back pain and other symptoms associated with pregnancy. More than half of all pregnant women suffer from back pain and/or other orthopedic problems that can include pain in the groin area, rib cage, mid-back or shoulder blades. A combination of factors may cause back pain, such as an increase in maternal hormones as well as changing posture secondary to the growth of the baby. Together, these changes can make the pregnant woman more susceptible to injury or lead to development of problems in the spine, pelvis or rib cage.
As a part of a comprehensive pregnancy physical therapy program, our specially trained therapists may employ the follow physical therapy interventions to help women during pregnancy:
• Exercises to stretch tight muscles, strengthen weakened ones, and improve posture
• Soft tissue mobilization techniques to increase circulation, relieve pain, and improve tissue mobility
• Joint mobilization to allow movement at the joints and to relieve pain.
• Instruction in appropriate body mechanics and positioning.
• Energy saving tips for home and work
