Pain Relief, Perineal Tear Prevention & More

You're probably wondering what physical therapy can do for you during pregnancy. We offer a variety of services to help relieve pain, prevent perineal tearing, and improve your overall experience. Dr. Kailee will create a custom care plan based on your specific needs and goals.

Dr. Kailee and her team provide care in three stages:

  1. First Stage: We calm overactive muscles using manual (hands-on) therapy, look at any current stressors or mental health problems you may be facing, and focus on good breathing techniques.

  2. Second Stage: We help you re-coordinate your muscles, bringing on any muscles that are underactive to help overactive muscles. This includes first-stage techniques with the gradual addition of specific exercises. We'll look at all the activities you want to do and make sure your muscles are coordinated to meet your specific goals. 

  3. Third Stage: The last stage involves strengthening your body as a whole system, ensuring that none of problems we've addressed will return. 

Some of the most common issues we help women with include:

  • Hip Pain During Pregnancy: Hip pain during pregnancy hurts to walk and can limit your mobility. We'll show you how to relieve hip pain during pregnancy with exercises, stretches, and manual therapy.

  • Upper Back Pain During Pregnancy: Back pain is one of the most common complaints during pregnancy. We'll show you how to ease back pain with a variety of techniques, including stretches, strengthening exercises, and manual therapy.

  • Diastisis Recti: Also known as abdominal separation, diastisis recti can cause a lot of pain and may even make it difficult to walk or sit up. We’ll show you how to tell if you have diastisis recti while pregnant and how to fix diastisis recti using targeted exercises and manual therapy.

  • Perineal Tear Prevention: Using hands-on perineal massage techniques, we'll teach you how to properly relax your pelvic floor muscles and take the proper positioning for labor. We can help you manage any pain, address any fears you have related to labor and learn how to properly push to limit strain on your body.

  • Labor & Delivery: We offer a variety of services to help you have a more enjoyable labor and delivery, including perineal massage, relaxation techniques, education on the different stages of labor, and more.

  • Problem Prevention: If you have prolapse or incontinence, we'll help you learn prevention techniques like pressure management and good bowel and bladder habits.

If you're ready to take control of your pregnancy and have the best possible experience, schedule a consultation with us today.
