Prenatal and Postpartum Therapy
Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is pleased to offer unique services designed for expectant mothers and new moms. We recognize the amount of physical (and mental) stress you are going through during and after pregnancy, and we want to extend a helping hand.
Our Physical Therapists and Massage Therapists can offer easy solutions to relieve back pain, leg pain, sciatica pain, and more. Our Chiropractors are also able to work with pregnant patients who have severe back and leg pain.
As your pregnancy progresses, an increasing amount of strain is added to your pelvic area, which affects your spine, hips, and thighs. Many women experience pain and inflammation in those areas during pregnancy. Fortunately, a Chiropractor who knows how to treat pregnancy-related pain is available at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation (Paramus, NJ).
Prenatal and Postpartum Pilates Therapy
Our Prenatal and Postpartum Pilates Therapy program is designed specifically for the expectant mother and targets the exact muscles and functions that can cause problems during pregnancy and after birth in a safe way.
Some of the many benefits of Pilates Therapy include:
- Strengthening abdominal muscles to cope with the strains of extra weight
- Reducing back and pelvic pain caused by weakness and overstretched ligaments
- Learning to relax and control breathing, which is important for labor
- Increasing energy and circulation
- Improving sleep
Patients may participate in Prenatal Pilates Therapy with clearance from their OB/GYN Physician.
Prenatal and Postpartum Massage Therapy
Paramus Medical and Sports Rehabilitation Center has provided special training in Prenatal Massage. This technique is specially tailored to an expectant mother's needs. It is different from a regular massage because the body has to be positioned and supported in a specific way that is comfortable for during pregnancy.
Pregnancy Massage aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keeps blood flowing to both the mother and the baby. It stimulates different glands in the body, which can stabilize hormone levels and relieve tension throughout the body. Prenatal Massage also promotes relaxation while providing mental support and restoring energy during pregnancy.
Postpartum Massage can help restore a mother's body to its pre-pregnancy condition. It helps to realign the body weight and tones the overstretched skin over the belly. As with all types of Massage Therapy, it relieves muscle tension and stress from mothering duties.
