What are the benefits of postnatal PT?
Physical Therapy can identify weaknesses and increase endurance of supporting muscles that may have been affected by posture changes in pregnancy. Physical Therapy is also beneficial in providing a home program that requires minimal equipment and time while caring for a newborn.
