Pregnancy and Post-Natal Care

 

Liz is able to offer the following services during pregnancy

  • Assessment and treatment of back/pelvic pain
  • Assessment and treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome and other pregnancy related conditions
  • Access to pregnancy hydrotherapy classes
  • Provision of wrist splints and back supports when required
  • General advice on lifestyle factors and selfhelp measures to encourage and maintain good posture and prevent injury
  • Pelvic floor exercises for good bladder control

Did you know 60% of women experience problems with bladder control during pregnancy?

All the ligaments in the body remain loose for some time after giving birth. This means repeated lifting of children, car-seats and pushchairs can make you more susceptible to injury.

Liz is happy to see women after childbirth for:

  • Back/pelvic pain and other musculoskeletal conditions
  • Exercises for good bladder and bowel control
  • Advice and self help measures following perineal tears or episiotomy
  • General strengthening programmes
  • Advice on returning to exercise
  • Advice on posture and back care
  • Rectus diastasis (abdominal muscle separation)
  • Coccyx pain
  • Prolapse treatment
  • Sexual pain

Liz is able to check your pelvic floor muscles and abdominal/core strength. She can give advice on when to return to exercise and what sort of exercise is appropriate.
