POSTNATAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

COMMON POSTNATAL CONDITIONS



  • Incontinence (bladder/bowel)
  • Pelvic Floor & Sphincter Weakness
  • Prolapse
  • Back Pain
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Diastisis Rectus Abdominis (separation of the abdominal muscles)

A woman's body goes through many changes during pregnancy and delivery and when baby arrives feeding and nappy changing put further strain on postural muscles.



We advise all of our clients to avail of our

ROUTINE POSTNATAL ASSESSMENT to ensure everything is returning to "normal"

ROUTINE POSTNATAL ASSESSMENT

1. Pelvis and Spine


We assess alignment of the pelvis and spine and the involved muscles to ensure optimal posture and support thus reducing the risk of pain and injury in the postnatal period


2. Pelvic Floor


We assess the pelvic floor muscles to check for imbalances which may lead to incontinence and/or prolapse if left untreated.


3. Abdominal Muscles


We check for the presence of Diastis Rectus Abdominis (DRA) or separation of abdominals.



Following the assessment  a treatment plan is discussed including exercise progression with the goal of returning  to your "pre-pregnancy" fitness level.
