Pelvic Floor, Core, and More (In-Person)
From Pregnancy to Postpartum: Understanding Changes In A Mother’s Body
Have you heard about the importance of pelvic floor health but are not sure where to begin? Are you concerned about losing strength and muscle tone during pregnancy? Have you lost strength and tone after delivering your baby? Are you still feeling abdominal pressure, pain, or weakness months (or even years…) after giving birth? Many women struggle with discomfort associated with changes to their body during and after pregnancy, but don’t know how to solve it.
Join Lang Ngov, PT, MPT, OCS, CFMT, an experienced physical therapist and one of only 5 Certified Functional Manual Therapists (CFMT) in the state of Pennsylvania for this interactive 75-minute workshop about pelvic floor and core health. You’ll learn how pregnancy affects the musculo-skeletal system, how to properly align the body, how to prevent diastasis recti, and how to safely restore your core after delivery.
Lang will introduce exercises to help prevent issues that may arise during pregnancy, help accelerate your recovery postpartum, and help you strengthen your core even if it’s been years since you had your last baby! You’ll leave this workshop with a better understanding of your body and understand how these exercises, if continued at home, can help you maintain (or regain!) an efficient core AND a healthy pelvic floor.
