Back Pain in Pregnancy

Pregnant women are taught proper rest positions, stretching exercises, and pain management techniques to make pregnancy more comfortable and back pain minimal.  Use of heat and massage may be part of the treatment regimen.

Fibromyalgia

Patients are aided in understanding the symptoms of fibromyalgia and are taught symptom reduction techniques.  Heat, electric stimulation, TENS, range of motion, tension release, relaxation training, and strengthening exercises are part of the program and are specifically tailored to individual needs and tolerance levels. A specific treatment outline is followed so that symptoms can be controlled or even eliminated.  Each patient is given a workbook entitled: Fibromyalgia Syndrome, Getting Healthy, which provides many self help and general information for practical use in gaining control over this challenging condition.

Exercise in Pregnancy

 Careful assessment of the pregnant client's exercise history is done by the physical therapist so that a safe exercise program can be developed.  Women are taught self monitoring techniques and standards of exercise duration and intensity.

Incontinence

This problem is addressed in physical therapy by looking at causes and frequency of leakage.   Exercise instruction for isolating the pelvic floor muscles is given and biofeedback or electric stimulation is used when needed to help strengthen these important muscles.  Studies show that with proper exercise most people can gain control once again.

Osteoporosis

Patients are taught the importance of proper posture and exercise to combat and correct for the affects of this condition.  A videotape is available for review. Individual exercise instruction is given for protection of the spine when one is active.
