Prenatal/Postpartum Therapies

Prenatal and postpartum therapy helps women to maintain a pain-free lifestyle and teaches safe ways to exercise while improving postural awareness. Prenatal classes offer psychosocial support for mothers-to-be while helping to prepare for the birthing process. Body mechanic education helps the patient to learn how go through everyday activities with safe movements that reduce the risk of injury or pain. Massage is also a useful treatment for prenatal and postpartum patients.

New moms deal with physical stresses such as caring for the new baby, breast feeding and related postural changes, putting the baby in and out of car, and a variety of musculoskeletal changes due to the pregnancy. RITWW therapists can help to get postpartum patients to get back into shape and tone up the abdominal muscles again.
