Although having joint, pelvic and back pain during pregnancy is common, it should not be thought of as normal. The physiotherapist can discuss and assess your musculoskeletal concerns with regards to the prenatal and post-partum period (including urinary incontinence, symphysis pubis dysfunction or Diastasis rectus abdominus), and develop an appropriate treatment plan and exercise program to help with the muscle imbalances, postural changes and weakened muscles associated with pregnancy.
“I came to Mike after a car accident in December 2013. I have never had a care provider who has done as much as he has to help me get better and who has focused on the entirety of the situation and how it can affect healing instead of just the immediate problem at hand. It has been a long road, but he uses a variety of techniques (including large needles which terrify me, but I have to admit work incredibly well) and is always looking beyond just the symptoms for the actual causes. Since getting pregnant while still rehabilitating, he has been able to provide exercises and ideas to help with the pain that has come from the changes due to pregnancy coupled with the previous problems before. He’s even managed to find ways to alleviate pain that is considered “normal” and just par for the course. I simply can’t recommend Mike enough and already have sent anyone who is in need his way.”
