Pregnancy Services

pregnancy-services-southfields-physiotherapy

A woman’s body goes through enormous changes during pregnancy and these continue for some time after the birth of your baby. These changes can have a significant impact on your overall daily functioning. Even regular tasks such as sitting, walking, standing and working can be difficult when pregnant. In many cases discomfort in pregnancy is a normal and accepted process.

Sometimes however it can progress beyond a tolerable level of discomfort or pain and we have a range of services that can help you to relieve and manage your symptoms. We treat all pregnancy related pain that may result from a combination of excessive load on your pelvis and spine and the effect of the hormone Relaxin on your ligaments.

We can also help new mums who may suffer from pain or discomfort related to breastfeeding, repeated lifting, carrying and bending. General fatigue experienced during this time can exacerbate these problems as there is less time for recovery, relaxation and exercise!
