Natal Care

Many of our therapists have first-hand experience in pregnancy and all of our physiotherapists are experienced in the management of conditions that arise during and following pregnancy. This may include lumbo-pelvic issues, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and joint and tendon stresses.

We incorporate a variety of techniques which include Pilates-based exercise, craniosacral techniques, massage, exercise and bracing.

Our physiotherapists can prescribe specific exercises that work to strengthen the deep abdominal, hip and pelvic muscle slings which are under new and increased loads through pregnancy.  Maintaining good abdominal and pelvic floor control throughout pregnancy not only helps to relieve pain associated with pregnancy but helps to maintain spinal and pelvic stability which can facilitate a faster post natal recovery.
