Pregnancy physiotherapy for you and your bump
With a growing bump and a jungle of hormones, your pregnancy will be a journey full of surprises.
It’s easy to think you’re invincible when you’re pregnant, especially if you’ve always been fit and active. Those little pangs of pain and discomfort can come as a surprise and a source of frustration when they start to slow you down.
Time to tune in
It’s important to pay attention to your body during pregnancy and listen when it’s raising a red flag. The team at PPG are trained to diagnose and treat the conditions that can affect you during and after pregnancy to keep you safe and strong to look after your bundle of joy.
The most common pregnancy conditions we treat are:
- Carpal tunnel
- Pelvic girdle pain
- Rib pain
- Abdominal separation, also known as DRAM
How we can help
First we’ll sit down and have a chat about how you’re feeling, then we’ll check how your body is moving and diagnose your pain. The team are experienced in treating pregnant women (we’ve got a football team between us!) and can empathise with many of the symptoms on a personal level.
We’ll give you advice on which exercises to do, which to avoid, and how to progress once you have your beautiful baby in your arms.
