How can pelvic floor PT help with postpartum recovery?
Your body underwent significant changes over the past 9 months! Besides trauma that labor and delivery caused to the core and pelvic floor muscles, postural changes and hormonal changes occur. The goal of pelvic floor therapy is to address core muscle weakness and retrain your body to activate the deepest muscles of your abdominal wall to prevent common postpartum concerns and get you feeling like your best self.
Pelvic floor therapists provide hand-on manual treatments, individualized exercises and discuss lifestyle modifications in order to improve deep core activation and recovery. The key to postpartum recovery is to address weaknesses and postural changes that occurred during pregnancy including core weakness, changes in functional mobility and joint mobility restrictions.
