Pregnancy is the greatest desire in everyone's life and an accomplishment of motherhood. But prior to pregnancy, we need to plan out things to make it successful.
Questions? How to make your pregnancy successful?
Answere: Answere is simple! A proper physiotherapy regime. A proper physiotherapy regime that includes Pre and Postnatal programs makes it easy.
Seeing a women's health physiotherapist can help you prevent and treat problems. The hormonal changes responsible for increasing the capacity of the muscles to lengthen and stretch during pregnancy (pelvic floor, abdominal and soft tissues surrounding the pelvis) can also make the joints more hypermobile.
In addition to this, the muscles have to hold everything in place while the intra-abdominal pressure (the pressure inside the tummy caused by the baby growing and everyday actions such as coughing, laughing and lifting weights) will keep increasing during the nine months.
During pregnancy your women’s health physiotherapist will help you by:
- Prescribing safe exercises and advice for you to stay fit and healthy
- Teaching you about posture and strategies that may help you to reduce the risk of strain and discomfort on your lower back and pelvic joints during pregnancy
- Treating and preventing low back pain or pelvic girdle pain.
