  10. You feel fine but want to make sure you are on the right path to recovery!!

Did you know that in France, a pelvic health physical therapy evaluation is standard at 6 weeks post-partum? Why don’t we do that in the US? At Zion PT, we are trying to bring awareness about all of the symptoms that could present themselves after a vaginal or C-Section delivery that could impact a woman’s quality of life and that she may think is “normal” or “will go away eventually”. Take charge and schedule an evaluation with one of our highly specialized pelvic health therapists today!

If you’d like to make an appointment, please call 212-353-8693!
