Pregnancy and Post-Natal Physiotherapy

Pregnancy and the post-natal period involve many transformations to a woman’s body.
During these times, it is essential to maintain muscle strength and fitness pregnancy to cope with the many changes that will occur.

It is important to choose appropriate exercises during this period to look after your abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Malvern Physiotherapy Clinic has Physiotherapists who are able to help guide you through exercises that are suitable at different stages of pregnancy and motherhood.

Some common conditions that arise during these periods include:
• Low back pain
• Pelvic pain – including pelvic girdle pain or pelvic instability
• Pelvic floor concerns
• Wrist pain
• Neck pain
• Mastitis (blocked duct)

Malvern Physiotherapy Clinic offers Pre- and Post-natal Clinical Pilates classes which focus on building your core muscles, pelvic floor muscles and overall strength.
