physical therapy

Anyone go through physical therapy to help with joint pains and to help your body adjust to your uterus expanding?  Just kinda curious of what to expect. I go in for my first appt on tuesday.

Hello ladies! I highly suggest physical therapy for joint pain! I'm don't agree with the group sessions tho! You can always try and if ita not for you then seek another therapist and/or clinic. You need 1 on 1 with a therapist that is skilled in manual therapy, muscle energy, and strain counterstrain! I am a physical therapist and treat many pregnant women with much success! Now with that said some pains will not be fully releived until baby is delivered! Hope this helps and if you have questions please let me know!

My question is should I expect massage or stretches or ice and heat? Or a combo if all the above? My doc says my body is not allowing my uterus to expand which is causing pain. Plus a fibroid to boot. Stable but still painful which adds to it.
