What is Physiotherapy for Pregnancy?

Women’s physiotherapy involves a range of gentle techniques to promote healing. Given that tight and stiff muscles are common during pregnancy and the months that follow it, a women’s health physiotherapist can stimulate blood flow in the muscles and allow lactic acid deposits to build up and drain naturally. If mobility is compromised and resulting in pain, physiotherapy can find the root cause of the pain, address it and restore optimal health.

How can we help

Peak Sports and Spine Centre’s physiotherapists in Brisbane can help in a broad range of musculoskeletal issues associated with the life stages of pregnancy: birth and post-partum, lactation and menopause. We also specialise in pelvic floor muscle function and dysfunction.

Physiotherapy for pregnant and post-natal women can help with:

  • Pregnancy-related back or neck pain
  • Pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain (Pelvic Instability)
  • Abdominal muscle separation (DRAM)
  • Carpal tunnel and wrist pain
  • Coccyx pain
  • Rib pain
  • Mastitis and blocked ducts
  • Return to sport and exercise after childbirth

Benefits

  • Less pain
