Some women experience low back and pelvic pain during and after their pregnancy. This may be associated with joint laxity, postural weakness and pelvic floor changes. Our physiotherapists will assess you and best advise you on specific strengthening and help you to improve your movement patterns. This allows you to return to exercise in a way that is safe for your body.
If you have concerns about the strength of your pelvic floor, or are experiencing difficulty with your bladder control, we refer on to a women’s health Physiotherapist to help you. We can offer an indirect measure of pelvic floor lift via external real time ultrasound, however it may be more reliable to assess the pelvic floor is an internal vaginal examination. We can work with the woman’s health physio to treat urgency, urge incontinence, over active bladder and pelvic pain.
