Keep Fit And Healthy During and After Pregnancy

1 in 3 women who have had a baby suffer from incontinence at some stage in their lives. Research shows that a tailored pelvic floor exercise program is effective in reducing post natal urinary incontinence. Physiotherapy for women in the pre and post natal period aims to prevent, manage and improve conditions such as:

  • Pelvic girdle dysfunction (sacro-iliac and pubic symphysis joints)
  • Back, neck and coccyx pain
  • Carpal tunnel and wrist pain
  • Breast conditions such as blocked ducts or obstructive mastitis
  • Post natal recovery of perineal pain and pelvic floor dysfunction.

Other services for women in the pre and post natal period include:

  • Childbirth education
  • Use of TENS machines for labour
  • Individually tailored pelvic floor exercise programs
  • Specific exercise modification for weakened abdominals and general fitness programs
  • Pregnancy exercise prescription and classes

Women’s health Physiotherapists can also help in the preparation and recovery from gynaecological or breast surgery, e.g. lymphodaema or restricted movement after breast surgery.

COVID 19 & Telehealth Notice

We have made the decision to close Proactive Physiotherapy for face-to-face consultations for the time being, in the interests of everybody's health. All appointments that have been booked for the coming weeks will be suspended until further notice.

We will very soon have our telehealth service, Physio By Video, up and running.
