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.
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!
“I had tried many other treatments, therapies and doctors for my continuous hip and back pain but it wasn’t until I came to KCP Physical Therapy and was properly diagnosed and started on a treatment program that I started to see great improvement. Joyce and Joy are experts in orthopedic injuries and rehabilitation and have helped me enormously. As part of my ongoing strengthening program, I have started training with Joyce twice a week now as well.”
