Back & Pelvic Girdle Pain in Pregnancy & Postpartum
Find Relief Using the Pelvic Girdle Musculoskeletal Method℠
This book guides readers through a simple step-by-step program that is focused on pain in the pelvis using The Pelvic Girdle Musculoskeletal MethodSM (PGM MethodSM). This holistic method includes specific, progressive exercises, which are augmented by video links and QR codes.
Topics that are covered include the anatomical and physiological changes during pregnancy and postpartum, common problems during pregnancy and postpartum, stretches and strengthening exercises to support The PGM Method, guidelines and lifestyle changes that can help, and continuing care in the postpartum period. Beautiful color photos are used throughout to ensure exercises are performed correctly and to support educational materials.
Developed by Doctor of Physical Therapy Deborah Riczo, the PGM Method is the basis of continuing education courses she has taught to physical therapists since 2011. Deborah wrote this book in order to reach more women who may not have access to physical therapy or as a companion to other healthcare provider treatment.
