The changes that our bodies go through to carry a baby are incredible! Pelvic health physiotherapists are here to support you and help your body adapt to this new environment. We can provide you with relief by treating some common pregnancy issues including: low back pain, pelvic girdle pain, diastasis recti, tailbone pain, and pubic symphysis dysfunction.
Pelvic health physiotherapy can help your pelvic floor recover after having a baby. Common birth injuries that can benefit from pelvic floor physiotherapy include: perineal trauma (tearing or episiotomy), intravaginal scar tissue, incontinence (bowel/bladder), pelvic organ prolapse, painful intercourse, tailbone pain, diastasis recti, and vaginal dryness.
C-sections are considered a major surgery and can impact your core and pelvic floor function. Pelvic floor physiotherapy can help with scar tissue management, scar tissue numbness/pain, core strengthening, and pelvic floor strengthening.
Return to Exercise Postpartum
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy can guide you on safe return to exercise after having a baby. Jumping into high intensity activity after having a baby can put you at risk of pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic health physiotherapy can guide you on exercises to gradually strengthen your core, pelvis, low back, and pelvic floor to prevent dysfunction from occurring or worsening.
