Recover Your Pre-Pregnancy State With Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy

Both pregnancy and childbirth are among the most common causes for pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD). So common, in fact, that 60% of women will form diastasis recti (DRA), a form of PFD, during their third trimester of pregnancy. It is during this stage that the uterus stretches the muscles in the abdomen and the pelvic floor muscles and tissues can become strained. The result can range from minor pelvic pain to a separation of the abdominal muscles, incontinence, and organ prolapse. Fortunately, pelvic floor physical therapy is finally gaining mainstream awareness for its ability to prevent, treat, and reverse prenatal and postpartum conditions such as these. However, not all physicians are well versed in pelvic floor physical therapy’s benefits to treating conditions relating to women’s health.

The good news is that pelvic floor physical therapy is accessible and does not require a prescription to begin treatment. ProTouch Physical Therapy’s advanced team of pelvic floor therapists in Cranford create treatment plans for women from prenatal all the way through their postpartum journey. Utilizing co-owner Zarina Vitebsky’s unique “whole trunk” method to treat DRA along with cold laser, visceral mobilization/manipulation, and hands-on therapy, patients can expect to see improvement in as little as a few weeks depending on the severity of their dysfunction. With such a high success rate, the clinic has gained recognition within the local mom communities in and surrounding Union County. Whether you are looking to treat or prevent PFD, ProTouch can help.
