Are you pregnant? Are you in the post-partum period and you’re worried about how soon after delivery you should resume exercise? Are you a mom suffering from pelvic pain or weakness? Do you have questions on whether the back pain you are experiencing is normal following the birth of your child? Did you have a difficult birth and wonder if things will ever improve? This is for you!
I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Amy Vander Linden, MSPT of Moment of Truth Physical Therapy in Phoenix, AZ on August 13, 2018 for a Facebook Live interview.
Amy Vander Linden, MSPT has been a physical therapist for more than 18 years and specializes in John F. Barnes Myofascial Release. Amy has found this to be the most effective way of eliminating painful restrictions and restoring mobility. She has worked in a variety of settings, from children to adults and the elderly, with a passion for helping anyone who is suffering and limited from living life to the fullest. Myofascial Release addresses all types of ailments by relieving restrictions that can be causing 2000 pounds of pressure on pain-sensitive structures. She has over 350 hours of specialized training by John Barnes in the JFB Myofascial Release Approach including women’s health.
Amy’s passion is to help women THRIVE throughout pregnancy and afterwards, whether they had a baby 6 weeks ago or 16 years ago (postpartum is forever). She assists them towards wholeness by empowering them to know their bodies, understanding healing processes and offering therapeutic touch, gaining confidence in their ability to do the things they love and providing education so they and baby can have an optimal start!
We chatted about what makes Myofascial Release different than traditional forms of therapy, who Amy helps in her successful private practice in Phoenix, and why consulting with a physical therapist specializing in pelvic rehabilitation and Women’s Health is important after pregnancy and delivery.
