Experiencing ache or pain during your pregnancy or since childbirth? Are you a mum in need of some assistance with your Pelvic floor, back, posture, pelvis or neck? Having Perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms?

Physiotherapy can be helpful in relieving pregnancy related back and pelvic girdle pain by educating on movement strategies, core and pelvic floor training, exercise and support devices for example taping techniques and sacroiliac support belts.

 

Physiotherapy can also be helpful with improving a Diastasis recti (tummy gap) in Postnatal Mums . We also can offer advice for ladies wishing to return to sport after pregnancy and ensure their bodies have recovered enough to return to specific exercises.

Pelvic Physiotherapy and Womens health physiotherapy is super useful for menopausal women to prevent secondary complications and education on symptom management.

Health MOT

Diastasis Recti

(Tummy Gap)

A health MOT is a physiotherapy postnatal assessment of how your body is functioning and adapting to the changes and different stresses placed on it by pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood.

Some women have a health MOT because they have concerns about continence, tummy muscle separation ( diastasis recti) prolapse or pelvic pain, others because they want guided return to exercise and fitness and some women believe that after the challenge their body has been through , then a thorough check up should be a routine part of the restorative process.

Do I Need one?

If you have had a baby whether that was a vaginal or c-section delivery your body has spent the best part of a year adapting and changing. I believe every woman would benefit from a health Mot after having a baby whether that was just 6 weeks ago or even several years.

Diastasis Rectus is an excessive prolonged widening and thinning of the midline connective tissue (linea alba).

DRA is often experienced by women during and after pregnancy. Whilst it is normal to experience some degree of separation it should generally resolve naturally postnatally. In approximately 1/3 of women the excessive and prolonged widening can continue and impact abdominal wall function and appearance.

Rehabilitation of DRA requires a specialist and individualised programme depending on an individuals presentation and specific goals.

Women' s Health

Pelvic Health

Pelvic Floor Rehab

One in three women suffer from urinary incontinence. Whilst this condition is common it is not normal. Many women often wait years before seeking help and low self esteem, embarrassment and helplessness are commonly reported (Sinclair & Ramsay 2011). Many women withdraw from physical and social activities as a result.

 

Please don’t suffer in silence Physiotherapy really does work to improve symptoms of urinary incontinence.

Did you know…

  • Women wait 6.5 years before seeing a healthcare professional for bladder control problems

  • Pelvic floor exercises are more effective 

  • when supported by a physiotherapist

  • Only 1 in 5 affected women seek help for incontinence issues.

"She eased away my pregnancy aches and pains using strong pressure and stretches to my most troublesome areas, yet relax me at the same time. I wrongly expected a pregnancy massage to be less than a 'normal' massage, and this way exceeded my expectations. "
