Pre and Post Natal Physiotherapy
During pregnancy your body undergoes many physical changes; to your muscles, ligaments and joints. Our team of qualified physiotherapists will help you manage these changes, providing advice and treatment during and after your pregnancy.
The most common symptoms and conditions experienced during the antepartum period include sciatica and lower back pains, SIJ (Sacroiliac Joint) pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, incontinence, and pelvic floor weakness. After birth, or post partum, many women also experience diastasis recti (aka superficial abdominal muscles are separated), abdominal pains, sexual pain and/or sexual dysfunction syndrome, as well as bladder and uterine prolapse.
We can provide you with a multitude of approaches and techniques to help you enjoy your pregnancy with the least amount of discomfort. Those include stretching/mobility/flexibility exercise programs, core strengthening and stability exercises, pelvic floor reinforcing and rehabilitation exercises, hands-on therapy, and soft-tissue techniques.
In addition, we focus on educating you about support braces, optimal movement and posture patterns, along with post-natal corrective exercises – the latter being crucial for your body’s rehabilitation after labour.
