Pregnancy, parenting, surgery, bowel, bladder, and fertility issues may have a toll on the body and can be helped!
At Fit For Life Physical Therapy we work one-on-one with women through the lifespan from painful periods, and bowel and bladder issues through menopause. During pregnancy and post-partum, we can alleviate pain in the pubic symphysis, sacrum, low, back, neck, and more. We also help prepare the pelvis for labor and childbirth with pelvic bone mobilization, perineal massage, and uterine massage that may help with baby positioning.
With surgical patients or cancer survivors we work with the fascia to encourage healthy scar tissue, decrease lymphedema, improve strength and motion in the ribs, shoulders, abdominal organs and hips.
We are the only PT clinic in Nevada County offering aquatic therapy which takes pressure off your joints, decreases pain, and allows for safe strengthening in a supportive buoyant environment, especially effective during pregnancy or with chronic pain. We also have a unique transition from therapy to independent gym at the South Yuba Club to continue and maintain fitness. Call us to schedule a free 15-minute consultation to find out what we can do to help you.

“Pregnancy is supposed to be happy glowing moms getting ready for their baby. I was miserable, I couldn’t visit my family or go out. Just getting through my work day was tough. After two sessions my back pain was gone, after four I felt stronger with better posture. I can finally enjoy my pregnancy without worry” Amy M., 34
