Pregnancy Pain

A Message from Dr. Krystal Drwencke DC, Owner, and Founder

Pregnancy is a remarkable and transformative experience for women. However, it can also present challenges when it comes to self-care. Fortunately, pelvic floor issues, which are commonly encountered during this period, can be effectively addressed with minimal effort. By addressing these concerns as they arise, you can prevent years of pain and discomfort. During pregnancy, the statistics reveal:
  • Approximately 45% of pregnant women experience pelvic girdle pain, which can lead to daily discomfort and even pain during sexual activities.
  • Stress urinary incontinence affects between 19% and 70% of pregnant women.
  • Following childbirth:
  • About 35% of new mothers experience stress urinary incontinence during the postpartum period, resulting in leakage when coughing, sneezing, lifting, or engaging in physical activities.
  • Over half of pregnant women develop diastasis recti abdominis, a condition where the abdominal muscles separate from the central tendon. This can lead to low back pain, stress urinary incontinence, and pelvic organ prolapse.
  • Approximately 20% of first-time mothers experience significant pelvic floor muscle injuries after a standard pregnancy and delivery.
  • 25% of women who had pregnancy-related pelvic girdle pain continue to experience pain after giving birth.

If You Answered “Yes” to Any of These Questions, You’ve Come to the Right Place!

At Ascent Sports Rehab & Performance, we understand the plight of many postpartum women who unnecessarily suffer from pain due to misleading advice such as:


Being told by your doctor to rest for six weeks before resuming normal activities, but you continue to experience problems even after days, weeks, months, or even years.
Being led to believe that following workout videos on YouTube will quickly get you back in shape, only to find that these sessions cause discomfort and leaks, leaving you feeling miserable and demoralized.


Being told that pain or abdominal separation after childbirth is “natural,” and that leaking or bladder control issues are just a normal part of aging.
Being advised to simply take pain relievers and expect everything to be fine.
Feeling as though your only options are medicine, surgery, or simply “dealing with it.”

The Reality Is...

If You’re Experiencing the Frustration of Painful Sex, a “Mommy Tummy,” or Chronic Low Back Pain, Ascent Sports Rehab & Performance Is Here to Assist You in Rediscovering the Activities You Love, Regardless of How Long It’s Been! And the Best Part Is, You Can Achieve This Without Relying on Pills, Pads, or Resorting to Surgery.

Choosing the right healthcare provider tailored to your specific needs is crucial. Failing to do so puts you at risk of undergoing unnecessary surgical procedures, developing dependence on drugs or painkillers, or enduring worsening symptoms for the rest of your life.


To prevent recurrence and address issues such as leakage, abdominal separation, pelvic floor dysfunction, and postpartum discomfort in the hips, back, and pelvis, it is essential to opt for the “least-invasive” and most natural treatment approach.


Recovery necessitates a provider who comprehends how the body functions. Pregnancy and the postpartum period bring about significant changes in our bodies. To achieve complete recovery, it is crucial to address various elements, including the neck, back, diaphragm, core, pelvic floor, pelvis, posture, strength, and body mechanics. It encompasses more than just focusing on Kegel exercises!


Treating beyond the symptoms is vital to ensure a comprehensive recovery. You need to collaborate with a professional who is willing to explore the underlying causes of your symptoms and dysfunction. That is when you will discover a PERMANENT solution to your postpartum problems.

At Ascent Sports Rehab & Performance, We Have Created a Comprehensive Three-Step Procedure to Address Your Postpartum Problems Effectively and Ensure That You Never Have to Deal With Them Again.


The current healthcare system can be frustrating. Waiting weeks, if not months, for a brief appointment with doctors who rush through the conversation, leaving you feeling confused and wondering what just happened.


This rushed approach is common in many physical therapy clinics as well. Therapists are often inattentive and hurried, lacking the time to learn about your goals or provide personalized care. At Ascent Sports Rehab & Performance, we do things differently.


That’s why we prioritize hearing your story.


Having worked successfully with numerous postpartum women, we understand that each person is unique, with their own body, history, and patterns of pain and symptoms.


Therefore, as a crucial first step, we will have an open chat where you can freely share your story. This will provide us with a deeper understanding of not only what’s happening in your body but also how it is impacting your life.


Many individuals have received a medical term or diagnosis to explain what is happening in their bodies. It may have been provided by a doctor, discovered through tests, or stumbled upon online.


Perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with conditions such as Prolapse, Diastasis Recti, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Incontinence, Sacroiliac (SI) Joint Pain, or Hip/Back/Pelvic Pain.


You may have been advised to simply relax, take medication, or wait as your only option.


While these measures may offer temporary relief, they fail to address the underlying cause of the problem.


Each person’s experience of pain or symptoms is unique. No two individuals have the same issue stemming from the same root cause.

At Ascent Sports Rehab & Performance, our objective is to treat the underlying cause of your discomfort, ensuring that it not only disappears but also remains resolved.


We understand that you may still harbor skepticism toward Integrative Chiropractic services. To address this, we have created a low-cost Discovery/Screening Visit.


Our Discovery Visits are specifically designed for those who are skeptical, uncertain or have been disappointed in the past. During the Discovery Visit, you will gain insight into the nature of your condition, the duration required for correction, and most importantly, build confidence that your condition can be naturally resolved!


This is the phase where significant transformations occur. We provide you with a personalized plan that empowers you to…


…resume physical activities, including running or jumping, without the fear of experiencing pain, stiffness, or bladder control issues.


…engage with your children, effortlessly lifting and carrying them.


…reignite intimate relationships with your partner, free from discomfort.


…return to your preferred form of exercise, whether it’s yoga, running, tennis, or any other activity you enjoy.


As your body heals from Diastasis Recti/Abdominal Separation and regains full core strength, you will experience a restoration of power, confidence, and a sense of vitality.


Our ideal clients are individuals who are driven and motivated to reclaim their active lifestyle, even if they feel restricted by their current circumstances.


If you would like to learn more about our availability and pricing before committing to visit, we are more than happy to provide you with that information.

Don’t let fixable problems force you to sacrifice your hobbies or family life.
