Exercising throughout pregnancy at a moderate level has been shown to have many benefits including gaining a healthy amount of weight, lowering the risk of cesarean delivery, and reducing the risk of a large birth-weight baby.
Is pain preventing you from being active during your pregnancy? Are you not sure what intensity, frequency, or type of exercise you can do during your pregnancy? Visit our Physical Therapist at Hudson Wellness to ensure a healthy and active pregnancy. Not only is prenatal exercise important, but a combination of upper body strengthening, proper core engagement, and lifting and body mechanics are also all just as crucial in preparation for the arrival of your baby.
Pregnancy is like wearing a backpack with more weight added on each week and you can’t take the backpack off! Imagine the stress and strain on the musculoskeletal system during this process, and on top that, unstable and lax joints from increased relaxin hormones. During your pregnancy, your center of gravity moves up and out, your lumbar, thoracic, and cervical curves increase which automatically changes how you sit, stand, walk, and move.
Make an appointment with our Physical Therapist for a full evaluation and personalized treatment plan to adapt to all these changes.
