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:
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.
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.
The last stage involves strengthening your body as a whole system, ensuring that none of problems we've addressed will return.
Our labor program can prevent perineal tearing, shorten labor, improve chances of vaginal birth, and reduce the risk of traumatic birth
