We treat many women who present a variety of conditions from pre- and postpartum to several years after giving birth. Safely gaining and building core strength is a common part of their treatment. Even if they don’t suffer from incontinence, diastasis, or other medical issues–and even if they are already in great physical shape–mothers often put up with a variety of aches and pains. When we’re focused on taking care of kids, sometimes taking care of ourselves gets put aside.
That’s why we created Body after Baby–a program for moms to do at home at their convenience. Here, Jamie Justice, PT, WCS and Lynn Batalden, DPT, the physical therapists who designed Body after Baby talk about how and why they came up with this unique, innovative 4-week program.
