Post-Partum or Delivery Pain

As beautiful and wonderful as the experience of childbirth can be, it can also be very traumatic to the mother’s body, whether it is a vaginal or cesarean delivery. Our Pregnancy and Post-Partum Management can assist you in healing from the ailments that may occur during this momentous occasion.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Pain

Vaginal deliveries can be especially traumatic to the pelvic floor muscles, often causing pelvic pain, incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. Cesarean sections can cause both back and abdominal pain, especially around the incision. Gas pains, scar tissue adhesions and extreme weakness of the abdominal and pelvic floor muscles are also possible issues that can arise after delivery or surgery.

Post-Partum Physical Therapy

In many European countries, all women are given eight to ten sessions of pelvic floor physical therapy to help their bodies heal during their post-partum recovery.  In America, all women must take it upon themselves to give themselves the gift of pelvic floor physical therapy sessions to address the myriad of dysfunctions that often occur after childbirth. Schedule your session now and come see one of our pelvic floor specialists at ITR Physical Therapy.
