We provide perinatal care for the pregnant and postpartum woman—and, by the way, postpartum is forever!

Although women do commonly experience difficulty/dysfunction during this postpartum time frame, your “new normal” as a mother should not include pain or involve peeing your pants!  

Common symptoms we can help with include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Sciatica & SI joint dysfunction
  • Pubic pain
  • Mid-back and/or neck pain
  • Core/abdominal weakness causing difficulty returning to daily activities
  • Urinary incontinence when you cough, laugh, sneeze, jump or run
  • Difficulty getting back to running and/or exercising safely
  • Separation of the abdominal muscles causing a “pooch” (diastasis recti)
  • Caesarian & vaginal delivery rehabilitation

We provide a variety of services to support women during this transitional time (that we like to call matrescence) and help them feel like the strong and powerful mother that they are!  

Our services include:

  • Pregnancy/postpartum massage for improved comfort or pain relief
  • Pelvic floor therapy for decreased pain and improved urinary continence
  • Corrective exercises for improved core strength postpartum

Other women’s health issues treated:

  • Hysterectomy rehabilitation
  • Mastectomy/reconstructive surgery rehabilitation
