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.
“The BEST! I was referred by my doctor a few years ago for various issues. KCP helped with my back, neck and shoulder problems. I was so impressed with my progress that I have stayed with them to improve my overall health, through training and yoga. I had gone to other physical therapy practices in the past, but found them impersonal. Joy, Joyce and the entire staff make everyone feel very welcome. I look forward to my appointments!”
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.
