A physio can help during your pregnancy in these ways:
1. Adjustments to your exercise routine – there are often changes to make in terms of load, frequency and intensity. There are also specific exercises we may avoid or prefer during pregnancy.
2. Pain management – some people experience discomfort in the lower back, sacroiliac region or pubic bone. There are manual therapy techniques that physios can do including mobilization, massage and assisted stretching. This helps to relieve pain and improve quality of life.
3. Advice – your physio will discuss ways to make daily life easier. They may recommend a brace, supportive clothing, pain relief techniques and activity modifications.
If you require a physio Norwood based for advice through pregnancy, you can call us on 7122 5250.
