The Importance of Pre/Post Partum Physical Therapy in Chattanooga

Pregnancy and childbirth are incredible feats of the human body, but they can also take a toll on your physical health. Many women experience a range of symptoms during and after pregnancy, including:

  • Back pain
  • Pelvic pain
  • Incontinence
  • Diastasis recti (separation of abdominal muscles)
  • Muscle weakness
  • Poor posture and balance

These symptoms can significantly impact your daily life, making it difficult to care for your baby, perform household tasks, or return to work. However, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Physical therapy can help alleviate these issues and empower you to enjoy this special time with your growing family.

How Elite Muscle Recovery’s Physical Therapists Can Help

At Elite Muscle Recovery, our experienced physical therapists offer a range of evidence-based treatments to address pre and postpartum symptoms. Our services include:

1. Pain Management and Improved Movement

Our physical therapists will conduct a thorough assessment to identify the root cause of your pain. We then develop a personalized treatment plan that may include:

  • Manual therapy techniques to alleviate pain and improve mobility
  • Therapeutic exercises to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility
  • Modalities like ultrasound or electrical stimulation to reduce pain and promote healing

2. Strengthening and Stability

Pregnancy and childbirth can weaken core muscles, leading to issues like back pain and poor posture. Our physical therapists will guide you through exercises to:

  • Strengthen your core, back, and pelvic floor muscles
  • Improve stability and function
  • Prevent future injuries

3. Balance and Coordination Enhancement

As your body changes during pregnancy and postpartum, your balance and coordination may be affected. We incorporate balance and coordination exercises into your treatment plan to:

  • Prevent falls and injuries
  • Improve your ability to perform daily activities with ease
  • Boost your confidence in moving and caring for your baby

4. Post-surgical Rehabilitation

If you’ve undergone a c-section or other surgery related to childbirth, physical therapy is crucial for a smooth recovery. Our therapists will work with you to:

  • Regain strength and flexibility in the affected area
  • Manage post-surgical pain
  • Safely return to your normal activities
