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.
“Joy, I am so thankful for the help and work you did on my back. I think you should know that for 9 months or so my back was hurt, I would have given anything to be pain-free, and I longed to be able to actually work my hardest at practice. Immediately after you started working your magic, my hopes began to lift and soon enough I left your care, elated that I would not be forced to quit gymnastics. Now, I am better than ever and have qualified for the regional meet coming up in Atlanta! I just can’t express to you how very grateful I am, and how happy I am that you have reopened my door of opportunity. Keep making people’s dreams come true!”
KCP has been treating me, my husband and our two daughters, ages 18 and 23, for 6+ years. Even though each of us have been treated for different problems ranging from lower back, shoulder, ribs and neck problems, we have all been very pleased with the lasting relief we have received from their treatments. If you are looking for a physical therapy group that will provide effective and professional care in a warm and caring environment, we highly recommend KCP.
