Through pregnancy women are given the ability to bring a life into the world, but it’s no easy task. For any women who is, or has been, pregnant you know all about the pains and changes the body undergoes. It is not always fun. One common experience we see at KCP is our patients have low back pain.
Why does pregnancy sometimes result in back pain?
As you can see there are many causes for pregnancy related low back pain. That doesn’t mean pregnant women can’t do anything to help this pain. Through physical therapy, back and pelvic pain can be managed and or eliminated. Help-exercises such as knee squeezes, bridges and spinal balance are often beneficial.
How can physical therapy help?
At KCP, Joy and Joyce have specialized in treatment of women’s health, and have an innate understanding of the pelvis and spine. Call KCP Physical Therapy and Fitness at 704-541-1191 if you have questions or would like a consultation.
I am an active “senior” with a passion to remain active (running, softball, golf, etc)…During the last 3 years I have encountered muscle/soft tissue issues that made staying active difficult. I went to a Sports Medicine M.D who prescribed steroid shots and anti-inflammatory meds which helped but did not correct my problem. I finally sought help from Joyce Kight at KCP. Joyce was able to quickly assess my needs and developed therapy programs to quickly resolve my injuries. In my most recent visit, Joyce found a mis-alignment of my pelvis and corrected the alignment on the first visit. Instead of reducing my activities I have been able to set new goals, including an upcoming marathon with my son . Thanks to Joyce and her excellent staff for getting me back on track quickly and providing me with the treatment and guidance I needed to remain active and healthy.
In the weeks after the birth of my first child I experienced 24 hour lower back and hip pain. The pain was so debilitating that it caused me to limp when I walked and have difficulty lifting my baby. Luckily, Joyce Kight changed my life dramatically. For several months she provided excellent physical treatment and emotional support, eliminating my pain and fears. When I once again experienced severe back pain after the birth of my second child, I knew who to call. Joyce to the rescue! After a few months of frequent treatments I was back to being the active, roll around on the floor kind of mom that my girls need.
I highly recommend Joyce Kight and KCP Physical Therapy. The facility is great, treatment is effective, and I don’t have to worry about bringing my girls with me because the women who work there are always willing and excited to soothe a crying baby or distract an antsy toddler while I am being treated. After almost three years of on-and-off treatments they are like my family and I actually miss having regular appointments. Thank you to Joyce and all of the staff members! You truly change people’s lives!
