Physiotherapy During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is an exciting and unparalleled period in a woman’s life. However, it may also present challenges such as discomfort, altered mobility, and pain due to bodily changes and stressors. At NDPE, we prioritise women’s health, and our physiotherapists will assess your condition and offer tailored treatment options to enhance your pregnancy experience.

Why Visit a Physio During Your Pregnancy?

Receiving physiotherapy during pregnancy may be practical in gaining pain relief and improving your mobility and flexibility. But there are so many ways that physios can support you as your baby grows that go beyond what you may assume.

Pregnancy can lead to the emergence of certain conditions and injuries. Physiotherapists may partner with you to address and handle these challenges. Moreover, they aim to aid in preparing your body for your baby’s birth.

Physiotherapists aim to teach you techniques to adapt your everyday activities and movement during pregnancy. This is vital for you to perform your necessary and beloved tasks safely and efficiently. Physios may also support you in maintaining strength and mobility as 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

There are many ways physiotherapists aim to assist during pregnancy. This may involve manual therapy, teaching you strategies that will support you to stay safe and mobile, and providing 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 ways to stay comfortable during birth.

After Birth

Physiotherapy may also be highly beneficial after you have given birth to your baby. Physiotherapists may aid you in strengthening your post-birth body, teach you safe ways to care for your baby while moving, and provide treatment for any post-surgery issues that may have occurred during the birth.

Types Of Physiotherapy Treatment During Pregnancy

During physiotherapy, treatment may encompass mobilisation of joints, taping affected areas, manual therapy, and massage. The therapy is customised to your specific needs and stage of pregnancy to achieve the best results possible.

Physiotherapists may also provide you with support and braces to wear. They may teach you various stretches and exercises that may continue to benefit you beyond each session, including hip flexor stretches, pelvic tilts, and Pilates and yoga moves. Additionally, maintaining good posture is essential for your comfort, and physios can provide guidance on how to improve yours.

Your Physio Questions Answered

Yes. Our physiotherapists are trained and experienced in women’s health and will assess you and develop a safe and personalised plan for you.

Can physiotherapy be done each trimester? 

Physiotherapy may provide benefits throughout your pregnancy. However, it’s essential to consult with your doctor first to confirm if treatment is suitable for your individual body and experience, as every woman’s situation is different.

Can my partner be involved?

Certainly. We can educate them on how to assist and support you throughout your pregnancy, during the birth, and after your baby arrives.

How soon after giving birth can I get back to physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy is often an excellent way to aid you in adjusting to your post-birth body and supporting you in caring for your baby. Your doctors and physiotherapist can discuss with you when your body is ready.
