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?

{Undergoing physiotherapy} during pregnancy may be practical in gaining pain relief and improving your mobility and flexibility. However, physios aim to assist you in various other ways as your baby grows, surpassing your assumptions.

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 are dedicated to making the most of your pregnancy journey and supporting you as you approach the exciting birth of your child.

Common Issues During and After Pregnancy

Experiencing discomfort during pregnancy is a normal occurrence, and issues may arise before, during, and after birth. Yet, these concerns can be addressed during physiotherapy sessions. Some of these issues may 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 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.

Your Physio Questions Answered

How can I have physio when I can’t lie on my stomach anymore?

Our belly pillows are designed to provide you with comfort and safety while you lie down during treatment. If this doesn’t work for you, we can also work while you’re lying on your side or seated in a chair.

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

Physiotherapy may be beneficial all through your pregnancy. Talk with your doctor first to ensure treatment is right for you as every woman’s body and experience is different.

Can my partner be involved?

Indeed. We can provide them with guidance on how to support you during your pregnancy, throughout the birth, and after your baby is born.

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

Physiotherapy is often a wonderful way to assist you in adapting to your post-birth body and in caring for your baby. Your doctors and physiotherapist can have a conversation with you about when your body is ready.
