Aches and Pains after Childbirth…What Can You Do?
Physical therapy can do a tremendous amount to improve your health as a woman – before, during, and after birth.
I’d like to share an interview I did with BreezyMama.com’s Alex Ota, published yesterday, on addressing physical ailments after labor. I also want to extend a special thanks to BreezyMama for highlighting such a painful and sensitive topic as postpartum women’s health!
Apparently, the interview was so popular and well liked that People Magazine has given it a nod in its Babies and women’s health and lifestyle section. Read the link here listed under BreezyMama.com as Body after birth: Explaining those aches and pains — BreezyMama.com
Here is an excerpt:
Let’s face it–carrying, on average, a seven pound baby in your belly is no easy feat. Coupled with your extra weight gain, swelling, varicose veins. . . feeling uncomfortable is putting it mildly. But then, you push that baby out and new aches and pains come to light, some of which stay around for months, even years. Breezy Mama turned to Ginger Garner MPT, ATC, PYT, ERYT500 to answer our readers most common complaints. From aching tailbones to incontinence to swelling–see what causes these ailments and what you can do to feel like yourself again.

Happy Trails toward getting your healthy body back after birth!
