Pregnancy:

  • Get help throughout your pregnancy by preventing and/or treating your musculoskeletal problems and pain.

Postpartum:

  • It is not just about your muscles and exercises…it’s how you move and breathe that also impacts the rehabilitation of your core.

  • Back and neck pain, and other spinal disorders.

  • Extremities: hip, knee, ankle, shoulder and elbow pain.

  • Muscular and joint dysfunction.

  • Lower extremity overuse injuries.

  • Sport- and work-related injuries.
