POST NATAL PHYSIOTHERAPY

Our women's health and Mummy MOT practitioners at Sprint Physio are able to provide in depth assessments and advice for women recovering after having given birth naturally or through a caesarean section.  Some women may struggle with aches, pains, pelvic floor or continence problems. Others may be struggling with getting their tummy muscles back into shape and getting back to fitness.  Others may just want some guidance in knowing how and if they are on the right path to recovery and when they can go back to specific activities, such as exercising or intimate relations.  We can also provide advice on manual handling and avoiding repetitive strain injuries that occur with prolonged postures for feeding, carrying and lifting your newborn.

 

It can be a very stressful time after your baby is born, and being in pain or struggling with continence problems can make it even more difficult. At Sprint, our women's health physiotherapists and Mummy MOT practitioners can help with the following issues post-pregnancy:

  • Perineal tears/episiotomies and painful caesarean scarring

  • Pelvic pain

  • Pelvic floor re-education

  • Incontinence

  • Urinary frequency and urgency

  • Diastasis recti abdominis / tummy muscle separation

  • Prolapsing

  • Pelvis, back, neck and shoulder pain

 

If you have any of the above issues, book an appointment for a women's health assessment. One of our lovely therapists will be able to provide time, care, guidance and support on tackling these and getting you back to you as soon as possible.
