Pregnancy Physiotherapy

When you’re pregnant your body goes through many changes and it’s important to know how to adapt to those changes effectively. A Physiotherapy assessment can really help prevent and resolve any pregnancy-related problems, and to provide specialist advice and treatment to make your pregnancy easier. The assessment will focus on improving posture, alignment and strength, so that your body is at an optimised position to cope with the added strain. You will be taught safe exercises and advised on activities of daily living that may be aggravating your symptoms. We will also discuss the true importance of the role of the Pelvic Floor for during and after pregnancy.
