Back and Pelvic Pain during Pregnancy

At Canyon Sports Therapy we understand that women have special needs and conditions. From back or pelvic pain during pregnancy to incontinence issues, we can help. Pelvic and back pain, occur when the core stability of the body is affected. The core stability is dependent on the muscles of the abdomen, pelvic floor, spine, hips and postural muscles. During pregnancy the stretching of the abdominal muscles and strain to the spine as well as the pelvic floor muscles weakens the core. Without core muscle support, strain occurs on joints, ligaments and other structures. These strains, along with hormonal changes, can affect the stability of your spine and pelvis and can cause pain.

Physical therapy is one of the only treatments that is safe and supportive during or after pregnancy to help gently strengthen your muscles and alleviate pain or discomfort. Our expert physical therapists have years of experience helping women with these specific pains. Physical therapy is highly recommended during pregnancy to prevent or address back or pelvic floor pain. We coordinate your treatments with your physician to ensure you achieve your goals.

It is about restoring your spinal alignment and muscular structure so you can enjoy the activities you love to do. By coming to our expert physical therapists at Canyon Sports Therapy, you can rest assured that we will help you feel better and stronger!
