Exhale Pelvic Health
Our speciality is working with moms immediately postpartum to support recovery from childbirth. Regardless of the type of delivery or complications present, a visit with an obstetric trained physical therapist can set moms off on the right track to recovery and decrease the risk of long term pain and dysfunction. Your physical therapist will take an extensive history regarding your pregnancy and labor, perform a physical assessment including basic strength and your current level of pain, and begin to teach you how to move safely and care for your new baby while also caring for your body.
We also treat women during pregnancy and later in their postpartum recovery. A telehealth or home health visit can be used to assess and manage pain, prepare for birth, pelvic floor, core, or general strengthening, as well as management of incontinence or diastasis recti.
Beyond pregnancy and postpartum, we treat all types of pelvic floor dysfunction, and offer telehealth consults as well as in home visits to all women. These visits can address pelvic pain including pain with intercourse or incontinence.
