 Women's Health Physical Therapy Wake Forest NC
 
Danielle was a lifesaver during my second pregnancy. I experienced some severe discomfort/pain in my pelvic floor and didn’t understand what was happening. Frankly, it was embarrassing to talk about! But during my experience with Danielle, she helped me understand what was happening without making me feel embarrassed! Thanks to her, my prenatal and postnatal discomfort was reduced greatly. Would definitely recommend to any expecting mommas or women who need some pelvic floor help!

Pregnancy

Pregnancy can cause many changes in a woman’s body. These musculoskeletal changes can be uncomfortable and painful.

During pregnancy, you may experience hip pain, low back pain, instability of the sacroiliac joints and your pelvis, sciatica, rib pain, vulvar varicosities, postural changes, round ligament pain, pelvic floor dysfunction, coccyx pain and pubic symphysis pain.  Physical therapy can reduce your pain, prevent symptoms from becoming chronic, and keep you at your physical best during this wonderful time.

Many mothers to be want to exercise or continue to exercise during this period.  As a mother of 2 and avid exerciser herself, Danielle knows first-hand what exercises are safe to do and what exercises are not safe to do. 

Postpartum

In the postpartum months, your body again experiences changes. Physical therapy after a normal or challenging delivery or pregnancy can prevent incontinence, prolapse, and/or sexual dysfunction. Your baby is growing and stretching the pelvic floor muscles during pregnancy and then the pelvic floor has a possibility of tearing with delivery. These muscles should be treated like other muscle groups when injured. 

Other joints and muscles are seen by a physical therapist to regain function and so should the pelvic floor after delivery. It is important to regain muscle strength and restore proper length so that you may safely return to activity and exercise.  The demands of caring for your newborn may cause back pain, hip pain, and /or pelvic floor dysfunction. 

If you have a separation of the abdominal wall, diastasis recti, that requires correction for safe return to exercise and to decreased you risk for pelvic floor dysfunction.

Our Approach

After a comprehensive individualized evaluation, Danielle will select modalities and procedures that will help you reduce your pain, improve your function, and assist you in achieving your goals.  Not only does Danielle address your Women's Health Conditions, but also address the Orthopedic Conditions that come during and after you have a baby.  These can include hip pain, SI Joint Pain, Back Pain, Sciatica, and Abdominal Pain.  The complete evaluation of your movement and function helps to determine the cause of your issues.  

Our studio classes of Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi can help you continue to stay strong and mobile as your baby grows and individual sessions improve your pain and specific muscle strengthening.  Ask Danielle which classes best suit your body type, style and goals you want to achieve

Wonderful local business and 2 great business owners. Worked with Danielle on some post partum work and she did a fabulous job. Easy to get appointments. Danielle spent the entire appointment with 1 on 1 attention. Her personality made appointments fun and relaxing. I am more knowledgeable about my condition and gained exercises for improvement. In 6 weeks I saw huge improvements. Will go back for further work when needed.
