Pregnancy and Postpartum Health

What is Pregnancy and Postpartum Health?

Pregnancy and postpartum health is an important part of staying well through this challenging life event.

Embarking on the journey of pregnancy and postpartum is a significant life event that comes with unique challenges. Agile Physical Therapy is here to support you emotionally and physically through this transformative experience. Our specialized physical therapists are trained to address the distinct needs of pregnancy and postpartum health, helping you achieve your goals with empathy and expertise.

How can physical therapy help me in my pregnancy and postpartum health journey?

First, our specialized pelvic physical therapist will ask you about your medical history, current state, and future goals. Our physical therapists want to get to know YOU and what's important in your life.

Agile Physical Therapy offers specialized care for pregnancy and postpartum conditions, addressing issues such as pain, incontinence, and discomfort. Our pelvic floor physical therapists conduct personalized assessments, considering your medical history, current state, and future goals. This comprehensive approach includes a physical exam to assess movement and strength, enabling the creation of a shared plan of care. We understand the challenges of leaving your little one, so we also provide convenient telehealth visits for physical therapy exams in the comfort of your home.
