Over the course of pregnancy, the body undergoes many changes, e.g. ligaments get looser, weight increases as the fetus grows, the body retains more fluid. As a result, additional loads or stresses are placed onto the muscles and joints of the body, and posture will likely be altered following those changes. These can lead to more than the usual aches and pains.Physiotherapy can help in many ways to manage and accommodate those changes for a pain-free and “stress-free” pregnancy. Physiotherapy can also help new mothers after delivery. For example, we can guide you through a faster and more effective recovery if you delivered by c-section, help you safely get back to your normal daily activities, as well as help you manage other physical aches and pains that can arise when taking care of a newborn.
