Pregnancy Pain

A Message From Nicole Boyle, PT, DPT, Owner and Founder of Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy

A woman’s pregnancy is undeniably one of her life’s most remarkable and transformative experiences. However, self-care can become challenging during this period. It’s important to address pelvic floor abnormalities common during pregnancy and rectify them with minimal effort. You can prevent years of pain and potential incontinence by addressing these issues promptly.

During pregnancy, various pelvic floor issues are prevalent and can significantly impact a woman’s well-being. Consider the following statistics:

Addressing these pelvic floor concerns during and after pregnancy is crucial for preventing long-term complications and ensuring optimal health and quality of life.

These concerns are not exclusive to women who give birth vaginally. Even in cesarean section (C-section) cases, the hormonal changes during pregnancy can still affect the body’s ligaments, increasing the risk of pelvic rotations. Additionally, scar tissue from the C-section can impact the ability of the pelvic floor muscles to relax correctly or contract, leading to pain and incontinence issues.

Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy offers a comprehensive approach to addressing these issues. Through a thorough examination of abdominal muscle function, overall posture, mobility of scar tissue, and pelvic floor muscle function, the underlying cause of the problem can be identified. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan can be developed to target and resolve your specific concerns, enabling you to regain control and resume the lifestyle you desire.

Don’t wait any longer; Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy is here to help you reclaim your body and overcome these challenges.

If You Answered "YES" To Any Of These Questions, You Have Come To The Right Place!

At Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy, we understand the frustrations and misconceptions surrounding postpartum pain and pelvic issues. It’s time to uncover the truth and discover effective solutions.

Many postpartum women endure unnecessary pain because they are told misleading information.

Here's the truth:

  • Resting alone won’t make a lasting difference.
  • Temporary relief might be experienced, but pelvic discomfort, leaking, and other postpartum symptoms may persist when you resume your regular activities.
  • It’s crucial to understand that prolonged pain or urine leaks after pregnancy or as you age are NOT NORMAL, despite their common occurrence.
  • Relying on pain relievers is not a sustainable solution and carries risks.
  • Medicine, surgery, and injections may be the only options your doctor has presented, but they are not the only treatment options available.

And The Best Part? We Offer Natural Solutions Without Relying On Pills, Pads, Or Surgery.

Choosing the right healthcare provider is crucial for addressing your specific needs. Making the wrong choice can lead to unnecessary surgeries, dependence on drugs or painkillers, or a lifetime of worsening symptoms. That’s why it’s essential to find a provider who understands how the body works and can offer the least invasive, most natural methods for treating issues like recurrence, leakage, abdominal separation, pelvic floor dysfunction, and postpartum discomfort in the hips, back, and pelvis.

Recovering fully requires a comprehensive approach that goes beyond simple exercises like Kegels. Pregnancy and postpartum bring significant changes to our bodies, and to achieve complete recovery, we must address the neck, back, diaphragm, core, pelvic floor, pelvis, posture, strength, and body usage.

Treating only the symptoms is not enough. To ensure a permanent solution to your postpartum problems, you must work with a professional willing to dig deeper and explore the underlying causes of your symptoms and dysfunction. By addressing these root causes, you can completely recover and bid farewell to postpartum issues.

Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy is committed to providing personalized care that considers your unique circumstances and goals. We delve into the underlying causes of your discomfort, empowering you to achieve long-lasting results and regain control of your body. Say goodbye to pain, leakage, and limitations and hello to a vibrant, fulfilling postpartum life.

We've Developed A Three-Step Procedure At Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy Designed To Eliminate Your Postpartum Problems And Ensure You Never Have To Deal With Them Again. Here's A Breakdown Of Our Approach:


We recognize the frustrations of our current healthcare system, where appointments with doctors often feel rushed and impersonal. The same can be said for many physical therapy clinics, where therapists are too busy to give you the individualized attention you deserve. At Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy, we operate differently.

We genuinely want to hear your story.

Having worked successfully with numerous postpartum women, we understand that everyone is unique. Your body, history, and pain and symptom patterns are specific to you. That’s why we prioritize having an open conversation, where you can freely share your experiences. By doing so, we better understand what’s going on in your body and how it’s impacting your daily life.

This initial step allows us to establish a strong foundation for your treatment journey. We want to ensure that we address not only the physical aspects of your condition but also the personal and emotional implications. We can tailor our approach to meet your specific needs and goals by listening to your story.

At Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy, your voice matters, and we are committed to providing you with the attentive care you deserve. So, let’s start by hearing your story and working together toward a solution that will bring lasting relief and empowerment.


Many individuals have received medical terms or diagnoses to explain what’s happening in their bodies. Whether it came from a doctor’s prescription, test results, or online research, you may have been labeled with conditions such as Prolapse, Diastasis Recti, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Incontinence, Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain, or Hip/Back/Pelvic Pain.

You were advised to relax, take medication, or wait it out, hoping for temporary relief. However, these measures fail to address the underlying cause of your problem.

Each person’s pain or symptoms have unique origins. No two individuals experience the same issue due to the same factors.

At Wholehearted and Healthy Physical Therapy, we aim to identify and treat the underlying cause of your discomfort, ensuring that it not only goes away but remains resolved in the long term.

This experience will help build confidence in your condition’s natural resolution.

We want to provide you with the knowledge and reassurance that effective solutions are available. By understanding the root cause of your discomfort, we can develop a personalized treatment plan that targets the underlying issues and leads to lasting improvement.
