How Physical Therapy can help with Common Women's Health Questions

During pregnancy back pain is very common. Obstetric physical therapy is a very effective treatment for most women. A thorough musculoskeletal evaluation will enable the physical therapist to create an individualized treatment program of techniques including manual therapy, specific therapeutic exercise, and patient education to minimize and often eliminate lower back symptoms.

Each pregnancy is different and discomfort associated with the pregnancy can occur. Symptoms may include pelvic pain, hip pain, sciatica, joint swelling, carpal tunnel syndrome, middle or upper back pain. The physiological changes that occur in pregnancy may also cause an exacerbation of pre-existing orthopedic conditions.

Women recover from cesarean sections (c-section) differently depending on many factors. It is best to consult with a certified physical therapist who specializes in obstetrics and pre- and post-natal exercise, for guidelines and recommendations on the safest way to return to normal activities. They can create a specialized program to help you recover as quickly as possible.

A physical therapist who specializes in women’s health can address urinary incontinence, to help you find relief. Often, having a better understanding of the condition and receiving instruction on proper exercises can assist with this issue.

A qualified physical therapist who specializes in women’s health is aware of the conditions associated with menopause such as osteoporosis and osteopenia, cardiovascular disease, decreased fitness level, diabetes or post-mastectomy. A physical therapist can evaluate your condition and design a program specific to your needs.
