Pre/Post-Natal Pain Relief
Allow for a Smooth Pregnancy, Delivery, and Postpartum Recovery with Physical Therapy
Do You Have Pre- or Post-natal Pain? PT Can Help!
During pregnancy, the body undergoes significant changes, including postural changes, increased stress on the pelvic floor, and ligament stretching and thickening. Your body’s many changes may result in back pain, hip discomfort, and other pain conditions.
At Wellspring Health Center, we incorporate various treatments, such as manual therapy, joint mobilization, myofascial release, and Pilates Matwork therapy, to aid in the smoothest possible pregnancy and delivery.
While pregnancy can have some unpleasant aspects, prenatal and postnatal therapy is used to help your body prepare for the trip ahead.
Do not hesitate to call Wellspring Health Center whether you are an expecting mother or a new mom. We’ll do all we can to make your pregnancy, birth, and postpartum recovery as simple as possible for you.

Does this sound familiar?
The musculoskeletal system is affected by physical and hormonal changes during pregnancy. Alterations in posture, shortened muscles, muscular imbalances, and changes in spinal mobility and bone alignment are all possible outcomes.
During the postpartum period, changing hormone levels mixed with the accompanying physical changes related to birth may cause musculoskeletal problems such as excessive joint mobility, possible muscle imbalances, core stabilizer weakness, and altered spinal mobility and function.
Pregnancy-related pain conditions treated at Wellspring Health Center:
- Pelvic girdle joint pain (sacroiliac, pubic symphysis, sacral and coccyx joint dysfunctions)
- Lumbar/low back pain (including sciatica)
- Upper body conditions (carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and thoracic outlet syndrome)
