During pregnancy, many women develop various musculoskeletal complaints due to rapid development, hormonal changes, laxity of connective ligaments, and shifts in weight-bearing structures. Any distortions in the anatomical structures of the pelvis may make the birthing process more difficult. The women’s health and pregnancy specialists at Active Recovery Boston utilize gentle soft tissue and joint mobilization techniques to help reduce myofascial restrictions and distortions within the pelvis, providing greater comfort for mom, as well as creating an ideal in utero environment for the baby.
