Post Natal Physiotherapy
Have you recently had a baby?
Feeling the effects of changes to your body?
Physiotherapy can help you during the 4th trimester and beyond.
Every woman experiences a different pregnancy and childbirth, which is why seeing a Women's Health Physio at WA Health Group will provide you with the right advice and treatment which is specific to your needs!
Whether you had a vaginal delivery or caesarean section, you will be assessed for any pelvic floor muscle weakness and abdominal separation which completed through an internal vaginal examination or real-time ultrasound imaging. This is extremely important as it reduces the risk of any incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse which is common after giving birth.
A treatment with a Women’s Health Physio involves a tailored exercise program to build strength through your pelvic floor muscles and tighten your abdominals, and general exercise to promote physical and mental well being.
Women’s Health Physio helps you manage:
Incontinence – bladder and/or bowel control
Bladder urgency and frequency
Pelvic organ prolapse
Diastasis or separation of the Rectus Abdominus muscle
Blocked milk ducts and mastitis
Scar tissue management related to caesarean section or perineal tears
Safe return to exercise
