5. Last but not least, a new Mom should try to find the time to take care of herself.
Taking baths, going for walks, maybe getting a massage all can go a long way!
6. If the aches and pains persists, please have a consultation with one of our physical therapists at N2 PT. Our physical therapist would do a complete evaluation and devise an individualized treatment plan. Treatment could include:
- Manual therapy:
- Soft tissue and joint mobilization
- Trigger point dry needling, if necessary
- Individualized postural and ergonomic advice
- Individualized home exercise program
- Kinesiology taping for shoulder blades or wrists
If you or someone you know are experiencing any musculoskeletal pain after having a baby, please contact any of our four offices.
