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!

With pregnancy, the body experiences many changes, including postural adjustments, increased load on the pelvic floor, and stretching and thickening of the ligaments.

The many changes that your body goes through can cause back pain, hip pain, and a variety of other pain conditions.

At Wellspring Health Center, we integrate techniques such as manual therapy, joint mobilization, myofascial release, and Pilates Matwork therapy to help make your pregnancy and delivery process as smooth as possible.

While there are undeniably some more unpleasant parts of pregnancy, prenatal and postnatal treatments can help your body better prepare for the journey ahead.

If you are an expectant mama or one who recently gave birth, don’t hesitate to contact Wellspring Health Center today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.

How physical therapy can help new and soon-to-be mothers

Wellspring Health Center can help mothers deal with pre and postnatal pains as their bodies experience the effects of pregnancy and childbirth. Our Eden Prairie, MN physical therapists will also help in addressing any problems that may arise during this exciting time.

By including physical therapy in your prenatal and postnatal care, you can be better prepared for one of the biggest challenges in your life: delivering and caring for a baby.

Does this sound familiar?

During the prenatal period, physical and hormonal changes occur, which can affect the musculoskeletal system.  These changes include altered posture, shortened muscles, potential muscle imbalances, as well as changes in spinal mobility and bony alignment.                                    

During the postpartum phase, fluctuating hormone levels combined with additional physical changes as a result of delivery may also result in musculoskeletal concerns, such as excessive joint mobility, potential muscle imbalances, weakness of the core stabilizers 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)
  • Neck / upper back pain/shoulder pain                                                 
  • Muscle spasm/myofascial pain (piriformis, gluteal, paraspinal, abdominal musculature, etc.)                                                                  
  • Core muscle weakness
