What is Prenatal Physiotherapy?

Prenatal therapy is a physiotherapy treatment which prepares women for labor. When you strengthen the core and the pelvic floor muscles then you will experience a smoother delivery of your birth, and that is what prenatal therapy is for. 

The pre-natal physiotherapy programs are usually customized and adapted according to the personal needs of every mother-to-be. To give an example, your physical therapist can help you with breathing techniques in order to prepare you for your actual labor. Those physical exercises can help you cope better with the changes of your body during your pregnancy and be prepared for your labor.

Important Information and questions

After the labor mothers usually face many different problems which might cause them stress. This stress can sometimes be very difficult to manage and to cope with. Post-natal physiotherapy is a kind of treatment which focuses on strengthening, relaxing and stretching in order to assist mothers to recover quickly. 

Another factor that mothers are worried about is the extra pounds that they take from pregnancy. This factor can be managed in a proper way with a structured, well-managed as well as specialized physiotherapy training program.

At the post-natal physiotherapy, you might experience stronger pain because of the constant lifting (lower back pain) and the breastfeeding (upper back pain).
