Many readers commented on my initial Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction post that physical therapy had helped their SPD symptoms. So, when I heard glowing reviews about Amy Moses, PT specializing in women's health and pelvic floor disorders, I knew I had to get in touch with her. I'm so glad I did! 

I visited Amy in the hopes of getting some tips for my readers about SPD specifically. What I learned is that SPD can be caused by a variety of imbalances in the muscles in, around, or supporting your pelvis. What worked for me might not be exactly the cure for you, though the principals of muscle imbalances and over- or low-tone do apply in all cases. 

In this 4-part series, I'll be covering the following four topics:

Part I, Why Should I See a Physical Therapist During Pregnancy?
 Or, Signs and Symptoms Physical Therapy Can Help

Part II, What Happens During a Physical Therapy Appointment? 
 Or, What to Expect at Your First Physical Therapy Appointment

Part III, Don't Crack in Half!
How Physical Therapy Helps Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction During Pregnancy!

and Part IV, How Should I Choose the Right Physical Therapist for Pregnancy?
 Or, How to Find the Best Physical Therapist

The posts will be released weekly, starting Monday, March 13th. If I receive additional questions in the comments, for myself or Amy, we'll be happy to address those in a fifth segment. I hope you'll find the series beneficial!
