Physical Therapist Advice for Parents
Physical therapists can help parents avoid the minor aches and pains—and even significant injuries—that sometimes occur during pregnancy and childbirth, and after childbirth when parents are more focused on their newborn's health than their own.
Physical therapists are movement experts who improve quality of life through hands-on care, patient education, and prescribed movement. You can contact a physical therapist directly for an evaluation. To find a physical therapist in your area, visit Find a PT.
