Why suffer pain in Pregnancy?Pregnancy physio

Just because you are pregnant doesn’t mean you have to suffer back pain, pelvic pain or other pregnancy related problems.

Our Physiotherapists can help!

80% of pregnant women will suffer from some degree of pregnancy related low back pain and 20% some degree pelvic girdle pain, with rib pain also a common complaint.

These conditions are often dismissed as being part and parcel of pregnancy and something that must be accepted and suffered.

We have Physiotherapists who have trained specifically to be able to effectively treat pregnancy related back, rib and pelvic pain both during and after pregnancy.

They will also help and advice on abdominal core strengthening exercises that are suitable to address Diastasis Recti (Abdominal muscle split). Performing the wrong abdominal exercise can worsen a Diastasis Recti.

Similar core strengthening programmes can be provided for mild to moderate Pelvic floor dysfunction.

Research has shown that gentle manual musculoskeletal mobilisation techniques, core strengthening exercise and postural advise effectively reduce the levels of pain and disability that these conditions can cause.
