When to see a Women’s Health Physiotherapist

Many women experience aches and pains during and after pregnancy. Back, pelvic girdle and shoulder pain are common due to changes in hormones, activity levels, body shape and posture, all of which can put extra demand on your muscles and joints.

When you’re a busy mum or mum to be, it can be difficult to know when to seek help but if you have a recurrent or ongoing problem that is causing you concern it is advisable to seek a diagnosis as soon as possible.

Here is how Women’s Health Physiotherapy can help:

During pregnancy

Muscle and joint pains during pregnancy typically occur in your lower or upper back, hips, legs and pelvic area. Your neck, shoulders and wrists can also be affected. If you have pain that has gone on for over 5 days, is getting worse, or is affecting your mobility, sleep or daily tasks it is advisable to seek advice.

After pregnancy

Muscle and joint pains can persist after pregnancy as a result of physical changes, childbirth and the demands of being a mum. Pelvic floor dysfunction and abdominal separation are also common and can be resolved with the correct advice and exercise programmes. If you have pain or symptoms that are worsening or not improving,  affecting your daily tasks and ability to enjoy looking after your baby it is time to seek help.

How we can help

After an initial consultation to discuss your issues, health and stage of pregnancy or postpartum,  a women’s health physiotherapist can advise on exercises, postural adaptations and supports you might need. They can perform a range of hands on treatments to relieve areas of pain and tightness which combined with the correct advice can relieve your symptoms.
