Physiotherapy During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an exhilarating and distinctive journey in a woman’s life. Yet, it may also introduce stressors and changes that result in discomfort, altered mobility, and pain. Women’s health is of utmost importance to our physiotherapists at NDPE. We will conduct a thorough assessment and provide appropriate treatment options to improve your pregnancy experience.

Why Visit a Physio During Your Pregnancy?

{Undergoing physiotherapy} during pregnancy may be highly useful in providing pain relief and enhancing your mobility and flexibility. However, there are numerous ways that physios can support you as your baby grows, extending beyond what you might expect.

Pregnancy can give rise to specific conditions and injuries. Physiotherapists aim to collaborate with you to manage these challenges. Additionally, they may assist in preparing your body for your baby’s birth.

Physiotherapists aim to teach you ways to adapt your everyday activities and movement while pregnant. This is important so that you can continue doing what you need and love to do safely and efficiently. Physios may also assist you to stay as strong and mobile as possible when you begin to care for your new baby.

Physiotherapists want you to be able to enjoy your pregnancy as much as possible and can assist you on your journey to the exciting birth of your child.

Common Issues During and After Pregnancy

It is a normal part of pregnancy to feel discomfort, and issues can occur before, during, and after birth. However, these can be assessed during physiotherapy sessions. These concerns can include:

  • Lower back, rib, hip coccyx and neck pain
  • Pelvic changes and pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Urinary and faecal incontinence
  • Prolapses
  • Pelvic girdle pain
  • Injuries sustained during birth
  • Breast feeding issues and mastitis
  • Abdominal muscle separation (DRAM)
  • Pubic symphysis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome

How Physio Can Help Pre and Post Birth

During Pregnancy

Physiotherapists may provide various forms of assistance during pregnancy. This may involve manual therapy, teaching you strategies to stay safe and mobile, and offering exercises to strengthen your lower back, core, and pelvic muscles to prepare your body for the birth of your child. They may also educate you on methods to stay comfortable during the birth.

After Birth

Physiotherapy may also be significantly beneficial after you have given birth to your baby. Physiotherapists may assist you to strengthen your post-birth body, teach you ways to care for your baby by moving safely, and provide treatment options post-surgery for issues that may have occurred during the birth.

Types Of Physiotherapy Treatment During Pregnancy

When receiving physiotherapy, treatment may include mobilisation of joints, taping affected areas, manual therapy, and massage. Therapy is tailored to your needs and stage of pregnancy to obtain the best and safest results possible.

Physiotherapists may also provide you with support and braces as needed. There are plenty of stretches and exercises you can learn to continue benefiting from between sessions, including hip flexor stretches, pelvic tilts, and Pilates and yoga moves. Maintaining good posture is key to your comfort, and physios may identify ways to improve yours.
