Why do I need Physio?
Pregnancy and childbirth are known to weaken and damage your pelvic floor which can result in problems with bladder and bowel control and prolapse.
It is recommended that all pregnant women attend physiotherapy to learn about the pelvic floor and exercises and strategies that can reduce the risk of problems postpartum. We work closely with fellow professional Kristen Hill of Bodycare Physiotherapy. If you decide to visit Kristen, she will provide you with nformation for after the birth of your baby and when to seek review and advice in this period. The ideal time to start physiotherapy is around 16 weeks.
Physiotherapy can also help with:
- Lower back pain
- Pelvic pain
- Abdominal muscle separation
- Abdominal pain
- Postnatal abdominal weakness
- Ligament and muscle strain
- Neck pain
- General musculoskeletal concerns.
For further information you can contact Kristen directly, as apart from our Midwife, all other professionals work independently of Dr Cerqui and Dr Homar.
We do however, work closely with each other and utilize their services when clinically indicated. Or alternatively you are more than welcome to contact your own Physiotherapist.
