Yes! Low back pain, round ligament pain, pubic symphysis dysfunction, sacral misalignment, pelvic pain or sacroiliac joint dysfunction are all common conditions affecting pregnant women. There is so much we can accomplish externally and if warranted clinically, we can gently assess the muscles, nerves and tissues internally as well. We will also work on posture, core stabilization, strengthening and lengthening of your muscles. Depending your knowledge and experience, we may also discuss appropriate birthing positions and exercises that will make labor and delivery easier for your body.
So whether you have aches and pains to address or simply questions or concerns about how to protect your pelvic floor during labor and delivery, a few visits during pregnancy can be a great introduction to the amazing support that pelvic health therapists offer women at this wondrous and powerful stage in life!
Please also be sure to tell us if you are pregnant or suspect you may be pregnant even if it is early on in your first trimester.
