Why is Physio Important During Pregnancy?

Your body goes through a dramatic change during pregnancy. Physiotherapy can assist with musculoskeletal issues that can arise.

Our friendly and experienced staff can help by providing hands on treatment, education, advice, and exercises to relieve symptoms throughout pregnancy, or after you’ve given birth.

Common Issues Which Women Can Experience During Pregnancy

There are several common conditions woman experience during pregnancy, including: 

  • Lower back pain
  • Pelvic girdle pain (symphysis pubis dysfunction)
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Upper back pain
  • Abdominal separation (diastasis recti)

If you are experiencing pregnancy-related issues, is it important to try to seek treatment earlier rather than later, so the symptoms can be addressed and managed as soon as possible.

Will Physio Help Make Labour Easier?

While physiotherapy won’t remove the pain experienced during labour (if only!), keeping fit and strong throughout pregnancy can assist during the birth.

Your physiotherapist can suggest exercises to support you during labour and offer advice regarding pain management strategies.

Physiotherapy After Giving Birth

Some conditions that are present during pregnancy resolve quickly after birth, but others may continue and require ongoing treatment to help settle symptoms.

Pelvic floor dysfunction, abdominal separation, and musculoskeletal issues related to carrying a newborn baby are some which can arise postnatally and benefit from ongoing treatment.

If you’re concerned about any pain postpartum symptoms, call North West Physio for some professional advice.

Pregnancy Pilates Classes

Some women can benefit from attending pilates classes during their pregnancy. The classes offered by North West Physio at our Eatons Hill and Everton Park studios help guide physical activity in a professional class setting run by experts.

Although pilates is not recommended for everyone during pregnancy, it is important to keep active.
