PREGNANCY

During pregnancy and after giving birth, women may experience a number of complaints which can be assisted by pre & postnatal physiotherapy treatment & exercise.

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 and weakening of the core, back and hips. Some of these complaints may continue after giving birth as well as the development of diastasis recti, separation of the superficial abdominal muscles.

Our Physiotherapists are skilled in treating you with mobilisation, soft tissue techniques, stretching and strengthening exercises. Education regarding movement patterns and support braces may also be helpful. We also assist in prescribing you with home exercises in all the stages of your pregnancy and after birth. Don’t just live through the pain and discomfort, do something about it!
