Pregnancy and becoming a mother can be one of the most exciting times of a woman’s life. However, the changes to a woman’s body both during pregnancy and after childbirth can leave her in discomfort.

Our expert Edmonton, AB physiotherapists will address any issues that may arise during this exciting time. We also offer pelvic floor physiotherapy which can make a huge difference. Our expert physiotherapists will work with you to devise a customized treatment plan for your needs.

Pre-and Post-Natal Pain

We recommend including physiotherapy in your prenatal and postnatal care as it will help you be better prepared to deliver and care for your baby. Your body will experience many changes during pregnancy. These include adjustments in your posture, increased weight on your pelvic floor, and your ligaments stretching and thickening. These changes may cause back pain and pelvic floor issues. Muscle weakness in your pelvic floor can also lead to urinary incontinence and difficulty using core muscles.

Women may undergo a cesarean section or an episiotomy during delivery that will result in a scar. This scar tissue can cause restrictions in the myofascial system of the body. ProActive Physiotherapy in Edmonton, AB uses specific myofascial and scar-release techniques. These techniques will release these restrictions and will protect your myofascial system from further distress.

Diastasis Recti

Women may suffer from a condition known as diastasis recti after pregnancy. This condition is also known as abdominal separation. Diastasis recti can interfere with the muscles in the abdomen and cause the belly to “pooch”. Our expert physiotherapists will examine your abdomen and will recommend treatment that will help you to recover. We use the latest evidence-based clinical knowledge to treat diastasis recti. Our expert physiotherapists can diagnose this condition during pregnancy and begin treatment.
