Pregnancy-Related Conditions

Neck and Shoulder Pain

Neck and shoulder pain during pregnancy is a common complaint due to the changes in posture, increased breast size, and hormonal fluctuations. The additional weight and altered center of gravity can place strain on the muscles and joints of the neck and shoulders. Physical therapy can play a crucial role in managing and reducing this pain. A physical therapist can provide targeted exercises to strengthen the muscles around the neck and shoulders, improving stability and reducing discomfort. They can also teach proper posture and body mechanics to minimize strain on these areas. Additionally, manual therapy techniques such as massage, joint mobilizations, and stretching can help alleviate muscle tension and improve range of motion. With the guidance and support of a physical therapist, pregnant women can find relief from neck and shoulder pain, enhancing their overall well-being during this transformative time.
