Physical Therapy Can Ease Delivery and Recovery Of Your Little One!
Are you currently expecting a baby? For several individuals, pregnancy is a very exciting time. The body is going through so many changes because a new little person is developing! These changes often include postural adjustments, increased load on the pelvic floor, and ligament stretching and thickening.
These changes the body undergoes may also cause joint or back pain and problems with the pelvic floor, as well as muscle fatigue that can contribute to urinary incontinence and difficulties triggering core muscles.
Pregnancy is a normal part of life, which can be pleasant with pre and post-natal therapy. We combine techniques such as massage therapy and myofascial release to help expectant mothers get back to feeling their best! Full Circle Physical Therapy can help make the pregnancy and childbirth process as smooth as possible.
At our Monterey clinic, our goal here is to prepare your body for the journey ahead, so that you can concentrate on getting ready to welcome your new little one into this world.
If you are an expectant mama or one who recently gave birth, don’t hesitate to contact Full Circle Physical Therapy today! We’ll help make your pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum recovery as easy for you as possible.

Within 6 weeks of giving birth, several new moms start seeing a physical therapist, and some even earlier! You will be better prepared for one of the greatest challenges in your life by incorporating physical therapy in your prenatal and postnatal care: delivering and caring for an infant.
Physical therapy to prevent scarring
Because of C-sections, pregnancy can result in scarring. This can trigger restrictions in the body’s myofascial system. When you attempt to move, this may result in a decreased range of motion or unpleasant sensations and pain.
Our Monterey physical therapy practice utilizes unique strategies of myofascial and scar-release to remove these constraints and avoid further compromise of the myofascial system.
