Research Proves Yet Again…

By Riva Preil

The Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy recently published a “Perspectives for Patients” article (July 2014) about the benefits of physical therapy in pregnant and post-partum populations.

The authors of the article reviewed 1,284 articles that were published between 1992 and 2013, and they found there is abundant evidence in support of exercise as a primary tool to target pregnancy-related low back and pelvic pain. This is great news considering that anywhere between 24 to 90% of pregnant women experience pain during pregnancy (and that approximately one third of those women continue to experience pain after delivery)!

Exercise has been shown to decrease pain, improve function, and reduce sick leave amongst expectant mothers.  Furthermore, physical therapists perform manual therapy as well as patient education on proper lifting techniques and transferring techniques.  In addition, they can fit patients for braces or support belts if and when appropriate.

Are you pregnant and experiencing pain?  Or have you recently delivered a baby and your body is still feeling “off”?  An individualized home exercise program from a specialized physical therapist might be the solution for you! Fortunately, we here at Beyond Basics are trained to help women with their pregnancy and post-partum related physical challenges.  Please request a prescription from your doctor so we can help you as soon as possible!
