Pregnancy Physio | Post Partum Exercise | Post Natal Physio
During pregnancy and after giving birth, women may experience a number of complaints which can be assisted by pre & postnatal (post partum ) physiotherapy treatment & exercise
Pregnancy Physio Adelaide – Common issues during pregnancy can include low back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, sacroiliac joint pain, pelvic floor weakness, and incontinence. These problems can be attributed to the change in posture due to the forward shift in your centre of gravity and associated weight gain and pregnancy-related hormones. Some of these complaints may continue after giving birth as well as the development of diastasis recti, separation of the superficial abdominal muscles.
Pregnancy Physio – Pre & Post Natal Physiotherapy may assist the above problems through mobilisation, soft tissue techniques, and stretching and strengthening exercises. Education regarding movement patterns and support braces may also be helpful.
Participation in gentle physical activity can also have positive benefits for your Pregnancy. Your Physiotherapist may recommend supervised therapeutic exercise for your pregnancy or postnatal period. Once an initial exercise assessment and your programme has been established, a supervised exercise class may be recommended. This is usually based on low impact strength and flexibility exercises to help develop a strong core to aid you in your maternal journey. Our Physiotherapists are skilled in providing you with appropriate home exercises in all the stages of your pregnancy and after birth. We are also trained in specialised postpartum/ postnatal corrective exercise therapy. Ask our reception for an appointment today.
