Movement for Mommas: Post-Partum Examination

Group of moms with their children

It’s about a healthy baby, and now a healthy you

Our therapists are passionate about post-partum care. Your body goes through a lot before, during, and after pregnancy. We are here to help you understand and navigate the changes in your body so that you can get back to your optimal function. We have developed a one-hour post-partum screening examination with a trained physical therapist that targets you and your specific questions and/or symptoms. We focus on posture and alignment, instruct you on targeted exercises for your pelvic floor and abdominals, show you how to lift and move with your baby, and come up with a safe plan to help you return to your previous fitness routines. Utilizing rehabilitative ultrasound imaging, biofeedback, and manual-and exercise-based therapy techniques, we address the body as a whole and help you get back to your optimal function.

Ultrasound imaging

Ultrasound imaging is probably most known for its use in examining the developing fetus during pregnancy. Now it is used to see important muscles – including your core. In the treatment of low back pain and pelvic pain, the therapist is able to examine your core muscles, abdominal wall, pelvic floor, bladder, and back muscles in real time. We can determine if your core stabilizers are working for you. It takes the guess work out of the separation of the abdominals.
