Blog

Physiotherapy during pregnancy can provide numerous benefits to the mother and the baby.

Our Top 5 Reasons

Our top 5 reasons for having physio treatment during your pregnancy are :

  1. Pain relief: Many women experience pain and discomfort during pregnancy due to changes in their body. Physiotherapy can help alleviate pain in the back, neck, shoulders and hips with exercises, stretches, and manual therapy.
  2. Preparation for labor and delivery: With specific exercises, your Physio can help prepare your body for labor and delivery to help with a smoother and faster delivery.
  3. Pelvic floor rehabilitation: The pelvic floor muscles can weaken during pregnancy and childbirth, leading to incontinence and prolapse. Physio can help strengthen these muscles through exercises, improving bladder control and preventing issues later on.
  4. Improved posture and balance: As your baby grows, your center of gravity can change, leading to poor posture and balance. With exercises such as Pilates, your Physio can work with you to help improve your posture and balance.
  5. Improved overall fitness and health: Physiotherapy can help you maintain or improve your fitness levels during your pregnancy, improving overall health and reducing the risk of complications during pregnancy and childbirth.

Overall, physiotherapy can play an important role in promoting the health and well-being of both the mother and the baby during pregnancy.
