WE HELP 30+ YEAR OLD WOMEN RECOVER FROM BACK PAIN AND PELVIC PROBLEMS RELATED TO PREGNANCY, CHILD BIRTH AND SURGERIES.

People who we help include...

BUSY MOMS

Well informed moms realize the importance of early post-pregnancy care in order to achieve healthy lifestyle in a long run. The ones who know back pain, weak abdomen, urine leak, bladder problems are not normal after delivery and the sooner they find help to treat these problems, faster will be their recovery. 

ATHLETES

There are so many runners and high performing athletes who eventually develop pelvic floor problems, a lot of times due to overactive pelvic muscles. If you notice pain, urine leak or any other symptoms related to your lower back or pelvic area, don't wait for it to get better on it's own. Seek professional assessment from a pelvic floor physical therapist to find out what's the root cause of your problem. 

WOMEN DURING DIFFERENT PHASES OF HER LIFE

Age is a number. You are as young as you feel in your body and mind. Urine leak is not normal at any age. Just because you are >50-60 years old does not mean you have to accept urine leak as a part of your life or something that you have to live with. If ignored for a long time, it can lead to more serious problems like frequent urinary infections. 

PREGNANT MOM WITH ACHES AND PAIN

Pregnancy is a wonderful experience but it can be a difficult time for some moms. Now if you are a first time mom then regular back pain, hip pain, or sciatica can add to the anxiety and make the whole experience not so pleasant. It is important to treat your joint/muscle pain or any tingling/burning in your extremities as soon as you can. It will help you have a more comfortable pregnancy. It will help with birthing process as well as post-partum recovery. Do not wait until after you deliver the baby and assume it will get better on it's own after you have delivered. 

BREAST FEEDING MOM

Initial few months after delivering the baby are joyful and equally stressful. Sleep deprivation and physical exhaustion along with sitting for feeding the baby can lead to postural problems including neck pain, upper back pain with or without radiating pain shooting into the arm. Learning proper postural techniques and strengthening upper body can help counteract increased front body weight and gravity during breast feeding.  

SEXUALLY ACTIVE WOMAN

If you always have pain with sex or it is something that is new and started after pregnancy, know that it is not normal. Sex should not be painful. There are medical reasons why some women experience pain during intercourse. There are treatment options available to naturally treat the pain by treating pelvic region and muscles without needing medicine or surgeries. It is not something to be ashamed of. In some cases, it can start to affect relationships when ignored for too long. Seek help.
