Introducing the Beverly Hills Posture Women’s Health Center
Pregnancy is one of the most exciting and beautiful events in a woman’s life, but it can also take a physical toll on her body. The added weight of the baby coupled with the hormone induced increase in flexibility of the joints and muscles can cause pain in the low back, hips and pelvis, an inability to sit for long periods of time, reduced range of motion, and painful sex. Furthermore, childbirth, whether vaginally or by caesarean, can often result in serious pelvic floor damage such as urinary incontinence, bowel incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.
In order to avoid these problems, it’s vital that women learn how to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles by practicing some form of preventative rehab such as Pilates and GYROTONIC.® By teaching the mother how to strengthen her core muscles and improve her breathing patterns, Pilates and GYROTONIC® help prepare her both physically and mentally for the challenges of childbirth.
Why Beverly Hills Posture for Prenatal Health and Wellness?
At Beverly Hills Posture, we believe in the importance of training expectant mothers for the marathon of pregnancy and childbirth. Our instructors are certified in prenatal Pilates and GYROTONIC ® and our facility features a full gym as well as three private Pilates rooms. On staff, we also have physical therapists, two acupuncturists, massage therapists and Dr. Walker Ozar — a highly trained, respected chiropractor who also happens to be the father of three and has seen first-hand how important pelvic floor training is to a successful, pain free pregnancy. Prenatal treatment and training is safe for any stage of pregnancy, whether you are in your first stages or last days.
