Pre-Natal & Post-Partum Physiotherapy
It is very common for women to experience an onset of back, hip or pelvic pain during pregnancy or following delivery. This is due to the many hormonal changes occurring in the body, the laxity of the ligaments and the changes in posture due to weight gain during pregnancy.
In second or subsequent pregnancies there is the added stress and strain on the joints for women who are also caring for and lifting young toddlers.
Other common pregnancy and post-delivery issues women may experience, include:
- numb, tingling, painful hands & fingers
- swollen ankles & varicose veins
- weak abdominal muscles
- blocked breast ducts
