The causes of low back pain during pregnancy are individual and can be numerous. Through an individualized evaluation performed by one of Alpine’s Her Health physical therapists we can get to the bottom of your pregnancy-related low back.
Possible solutions that we may provide include core strengthening, postural retraining, instruction in sleep position modification, manual therapy, fitting for a prenatal pelvic support brace, pelvic floor training, and instruction on a safe prenatal exercise program.
Also, water exercise, Pilates, and CoreAlign feel good on a pregnant woman’s body. Thus, we take advantage of our knowledge of these treatment choices to help provide a safe alternative to your pre-pregnancy exercises.
Tara Mund, DPT, the Director of Her Health at Alpine, describes in the accompanying video what physical therapy can do to help when low back pain occurs during and after pregnancy. Click on the video player below to view.
