PRE & POST NATAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

The physical changes to a women’s body as related to pregnancy are multiple. Evidence shows that group training programs designed and delivered by physiotherapists can relieve lower back pain, pelvic pain and urinary incontinence in pregnant women. Pregnancy and post-natal (post-baby) issues commonly include pain in the low back, hips, groin and hands, as well as pelvic floor problems such as incontinence and prolapse. Pelvic floor muscle exercises are often an important part in helping many of these issues.  Every person is different so finding out why you have a problem is essential to proper recovery. The goal of such a program would be to offer women improved prenatal fitness – that would lead to a healthier and easier pregnancy and delivery and healthy motherhood. The exercises help in reducing body weight and improving posture to cope effectively with the labor and the postnatal period.
