Pre and Postpartum Care at Lakeshore Physical Therapy

Many physical changes happen to a woman’s body during pregnancy and quite often the expertise of a physical therapist is a solid resource.   More than two-thirds of women experience low back pain during pregnancy.  It is common, but treatable, with a PT program of proper body mechanics, posture education, manual therapy, stretching and stabilization exercises.  Other pre and postpartum issues that are successfully treated in physical therapy are pelvic pain, urinary incontinence, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, diastasis recti, wrist/ hand pain, abdominal weakness, and neck pain. Pregnancy is a time of change for the body and the changes occur rapidly.  Lakeshore Physical Therapy has experienced physical therapists to evaluate and treat the musculoskeletal conditions that commonly occur during all phases of pregnancy.  Feel free to call us at 773-770-2419 (LP) or 312-801-8440 (IC) to schedule an evaluation and stay pain free during and after pregnancy.
