PT Program Ensures a Safe Return to Running Postpartum

For Kristina Vegh of Raleigh, running is an essential part of life. After attending college on a running scholarship, she traveled to countries like Turkey, Estonia, and Austria to race. Following the birth of her first child, Vegh was determined to return to running as soon as possible. She quickly learned that running postpartum wasn’t as simple as lacing up her tennis shoes. After struggling with injuries following her first three pregnancies, Vegh sought help from Duke Health physical therapist, Stacey Head, PT. She helped Vegh learn to strengthen her pelvic floor so she could return to running postpartum safely.
