Here at PRA, we take pride in caring for our mother’s and mother’s to be. Pregnancy can be challenging with growing humans inside of you. Aches and pains will happen, and we aim to keep you as healthy as possible during your pregnancy. Whether you have muscular discomfort or just want to learn what exercises to do or not do to stay safe throughout your pregnancy our clinicians can help.
After having a baby, many women will resume all normal activities they were used to pre baby after 6 weeks, however, usually there is much more care needed to return to these things safely since your body has now changed.
One of these challenges can be the dreaded diastasis. Diastasis Recti is a gap that occurs between the rectus abdominis of the abdomen during pregnancy. If this gap remains or worsens over time this can lead to abdominal pain, back pain, and core weakness. This can be treated early on after delivery to prevent diastasis from worsening and to ensure proper healing. Our physical therapists use manual techniques, acupuncture, and specialized exercise to treat diastasis and return you to all your previous exercise routines feeling your best!
