The Fit For You Experience
So often, women are dismissed by their doctors during pregnancy and the postpartum phase. We are told, “that's just a normal part of pregnancy" or recovery. Although these symptoms may be common, they are NOT NORMAL. And there is so much we can do to manage or eliminate them. Let us help you!
Low back pain during pregnancy limiting your ability to walk? Carpal tunnel during pregnancy waking you up at night? Neck/hand/wrist pain when trying to hold your baby to breastfeed? Incontinence causing you to limit your activity or social interactions?

Dr. Chelsea Petrakovitz, DPT, PCES
Dr. Chelsea Petrakovitz started this practice to promote awareness of the need for physical therapy for the pregnant and postpartum woman. She knows the struggles faced, from both a professional and personal perspective, having been pregnant with a singleton and then twins. She had MANY symptoms that would have warranted a pelvic floor PT evaluation, however it was never once recommended so she took matters into her own hands. She has completed additional training to become a Pregnancy and Postpartum Corrective Exercise Specialist and is on a mission to help as many women as possible. Dr. Chelsea takes a holistic approach, treating the whole body as needed to ensure the best possible outcomes!
