Your body goes through many changes during pregnancy and unfortunately this can result in pain or discomfort in some people. Physiotherapists can help to manage common pregnancy related issues such as pain of the upper back, ribs, lower back (including sciatica), pelvic girdle (including pubic bone and hips) and hands (including Carpal Tunnel Syndrome).
Pregnancy also puts pressure on pelvic floor muscles, which can contribute to issues with bladder and bowel control during this time. Physiotherapists are trained to help manage these problems specifically during pregnancy.
Rehabilitation with a Physiotherapist in the postnatal period will help you to recover your optimal pelvic floor muscle and abdominal muscle function. If you are symptom free it does not mean these muscles are as strong as before, and while your muscles may cope with day-to-day load, people can develop problems with their next pregnancy or as they enter menopause if proper rehabilitation is not completed.
For the best recovery after having your baby, it is recommended to see a Physiotherapist 6-8 weeks after delivery.
We at Physio World offers following therapies for best care during this precious journey of life.
