[expand title=”New Mom Consult”]
New Mom Consult – Now that you are through the initial new baby moments, it’s time to take a look at you! How is your body? Are your shoulders achy from holding that precious bundle up to feed? Is your neck sore from hefting the car seat or wearing baby? Are you anxious to get back to running and wondering if your body is ready? Evolution Physical Therapy now offers a specialized New Mom Consultation, to guide you on the path to recovering your pre-pregnancy functioning.

This one-hour evaluation with our Women’s Health Physical Therapists, Meagen Satinsky MPT, and Michelle Downing DPT will address abdominal strength and integrity, pelvic floor function, muscle and joint pain. Common issues addressed include diastasis recti, post c-section abdominal retraining, pelvic floor muscle re-education (proper Kegel exercise), incontinence, pelvic pain, breastfeeding positioning, lifting and carrying recommendations.

Each woman has unique issues that will be addressed within 1 to 6 visits, including a home program. The new mom consult is covered by insurance and will be billed as a physical therapy visit. New moms must be 2 weeks post-delivery, or cleared by the physician if there were complications during the birth. Please give our office a call at 802-864-9642 to schedule an evaluation.[/expand]

[expand title=”Pelvic Floor Therapy”]Pelvic Floor Therapy (covered by your health insurance – Evolution Physical Therapy’s pelvic floor therapists,  are trained to evaluate and treat issues that arise due to a dysfunctional pelvic floor.  Women may experience urinary incontinence, urge, pain during sex, pelvic, hip, and low back pain. During the postpartum phase splitting of the abdominal muscles may limit women from strengthening their core. Our therapists can teach you how to close the split and regain your abdominal function. Treatment sessions include a comprehensive evaluation of abdominal, back, hip and pelvic floor function, biofeedback training, release of tight muscles, and retraining of weak muscles. If you have had a c-section or episiotomy, you may be taught how to perform scar tissue massage. Our therapists are all yoga instructors and may prescribe a home yoga program to improve your hip mobility and core strength to help you achieve your goals.  The initial evaluation is 60 minutes and follow-up sessions are 45 minutes long.  We typically see clients for 6-8 sessions every 1-2 weeks until the issue is resolved. We accept most major insurance carriers. Click here for more information about our physical therapy services.
