Maternal Health Care in West Adelaide

At Phyx., our mission is to help all Adelaide mummies and mummies to be, to be fit, strong and healthy throughout their journey from bun in the oven to beyond.

With a growing tummy, changing body shape, hormones and sleeping patterns, many women experience pregnancy related aches and pains.

But did you know that many of these changes that affect your musculoskeletal system in preparation for child birth also remain for 6 to 9 months after birth?

Our physiotherapists have special interest in both pregnancy and postnatal physiotherapy and Pilates. We are here to support you from your first trimester through to your baby’s arrival and your post-natal recovery.

Pregnancy Care

During pregnancy, your body undergoes many changes and we are here to support you through them with Physio treatment, Pilates and advice.

Physiotherapy can provide you with short and long term pain relief, while also working together with you to provide strategies to help you along with the rest of your pregnancy.

Your maternal health physio can also help by guiding you through exercises that are safe during pregnancy, helping you feel stronger and reducing your risk of developing other pregnancy-related aches and pains.

Pregnancy Pilates

During pregnancy, participating in some form of exercise such as Pilates has been shown to be very beneficial in both your health and the health of your baby.

Benefits of these classes include;

  • Strengthen your lower back and pelvic muscles
  • Pelvic Floor strengthening and education
  • Relieve back and neck pain with pregnancy safe stretching exercises
  • Prepare your body for childbirth and beyond

Our classes at Phyx. are designed by our physiotherapists who have undergone training in pregnancy care and exercises.

Exercises will be tailored to your gestation to ensure you and your growing baby are safe. Read more information about Pregnancy Pilates here.

We are here to support you from your first trimester through to your baby’s arrival and beyond.

Postnatal Care

Welcome to the wonderful (but challenging!) world of motherhood.

Your body has been through a lot throughout your pregnancy, whether you experienced morning (or all day) sickness, back pain, pubic pain, fatigue, nausea or reflux…

And then of course, the birth.

Now that baby has FINALLY arrived and things are starting to settle (a little!), you might be starting to feel like it’s the right time to start doing something to help your body recover and get stronger.

We are here to support you through your journey into motherhood helping with aches and pains, recovering from birth, breastfeeding support and Pilates.

Mums & Bubs Pilates

Starting from 6 weeks after your beautiful baby is born, this is a Pilates class that is a safe and effective way of helping your postnatal recovery.

Bring your baby along with you, and enjoy the comfort of exercising with other mums.
In these small group classes, you will learn how to safely activate your pelvic floor, while strengthening and toning your entire body with a special focus on core control.

Benefits of these classes include:

  • Abdominal separation and pelvic floor strengthening
  • Tone and strengthen your whole body safely
  • Increase core control and stability
  • Improve wellbeing and increasing energy levels
  • Connect with other mums (and their bubbies)

Our Pilates classes at Phyx. are designed by our physiotherapists who have undergone training in pregnancy and postpartum exercises.

Classes are peppered with tips and tricks about optimising your body for recovery (eg. at home exercises to help with your pelvic floor and DRAM, feeding postures, pram heights and more). Find more information about Mums & Bubs Pilates here.

I had a great experience with Veronica this week. She provided fantastic assessment and treatment which relieved my longstanding L arm pain immediately after the first visit. Thank you so much for your great support.

If only giving 10 stars were an option here. I first attended Phyx almost 4 years ago for a niggling pain that after a few visits came good. Then after an injury about a year ago with pinched nerves causing radiating pain in the shoulder area, I returned to visit Phyx again. I started with hands-on physio treatment and then added some one one-on-one Pilates sessions with the physio and now on to group Pilates classes. The hands-on treatment is great as the physios really listen, focus on what you're saying, and are obviously highly skilled to rectify tricky problems. My GP and specialist told me surgery was the only answer, but so far with the treatment from Phyx we're proving that wrong.From day one the team has been amazing, and very professional. Everyone is so polite, friendly and welcoming. Especially making a bloke feel comfortable in fitting into Pilates classes that are generally considered to be a "Ladies' thing". Let me just say, get in there guys it really is a full workout. Thank you all very much.

So far I have only had the Physio consultation and have booked into my first Pilates class which will be soon (this is why I have only put 4 stars). The Receptionist was friendly and the Physiotherapist was very thorough and also friendly and I felt comfortable asking any questions. She took me into the studio and showed me a few exercises. I am looking forward to starting my classes soon.

The team at Phyx are amazing!! From the moment you are greeted at the front desk you are treated with genuine care and kindness. I've been going to Phyx for treatment on a back/neck issue and I am so impressed with the results. The physio team are very knowledgeable, professional and are only interested in achieving the best outcomes for their clients. I also love their pilates classes - they are physio-led and suit anyone, from beginners to elite level. Highly recommend Phyx! 🙂
