Moms deserve more than a 6-week check-up when it comes to recovery after pregnancy and childbirth. Our chiropractor, Dr. Gillian Altheim, is certified in postpartum exercise rehabilitation through GrowCo.
GrowCo experts fill the gap by providing a comprehensive postpartum checkup and progressive healing. This is done through group based rehab programs which use exercises targeting the full body with a special focus on core and pelvic floor.
Postpartum Rehab Classes
Dr Gillian’s Postpartum Rehab classes will help you get back to feeling more like yourself. Each program includes a one-on-one movement screen with Dr. Gill to evaluate where you currently are.
Following your assessment, we begin 8 one-hour exercise sessions over the next four weeks. Over the four weeks, you will work within the 4 pillars of Postpartum Rehab:
- Postural Protocol
- Core & Pelvic Floor Function & Strength
- Glute Strengthening
Modifications will be given during class for those who have had a c-section.
