Having a baby can be a joyous time in a woman's life, or it can be a trying time, if musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction develop.  We have Physical and Occupational Therapists who are specially trained to address the unique changes a woman's body goes through when pregnant. They can help you address any problems you may be experiencing, such as: 

  • Low back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Sacroiliac joint pain and dysfunction
  • Pubic symphysis pain
  • Nerve compression or irritation, such as sciatica and piriformis syndrome
  • Scar pain following episiotomy or c-section
  • Dyspareunia (pain with intercourse) following delivery
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Lymphedema and venous stasis
  • Bladder symptoms such as urgency, frequency, and incontinence

While the above symptoms are common during and after pregnancy, if they interfere with your every-day functions, they should not be considered "normal". Therapists at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital can help you meet these unique musculoskeletal challenges, and get you back on your feet, so you can enjoy your growing family.

What you can expect:

  • A detailed and individualized evaluation, during which you and your Physical or Occupational Therapist will determine what it is you want to achieve in therapy,
  • customized interventions to improve your ability to perform activities of daily living, and to help you reach your goals, and
  • periodic reassessment to ensure that your goals are being met
