Post Natal Care

Six Week Post Natal Check

 

Having a post natal assessment - best done at around 6 weeks but still relevant in the first 12 months after delivery - is very important to check the function of your pelvic floor muscles.

 

her physio will assess your abdominal function (including recuts diastasis separation, or DRAM) and provide information regarding appropriate abdominal strengthening.

 

If you had issues with sacroiliac joint or pubic symphysis instability during your pregnancy, we will conduct a thorough musculoskeletal assessment.

 

We can also provide advice on an appropriate fitness program, whether you want to return to or start an exercise program, to ensure you do not put increased stress on your pelvic floor at a time when it is still vulnerable.  

Mastitis Treatment

 

Mastitis is inflammation of the breast caused by blocked milk ducts (non-infective mastitis) or a bacterial infection (infective mastitis). The breasts may become painful, tender and hard to touch.  They may look swollen and red. Other symptoms include generalised aches, pains and a high temperature.

 

At her physio we can help manage mastitis and reduce the inflammation using therapeutic ultrasound.


 

Musculoskeletal Conditions

 

The post natal period is a busy time for all mums and can put a lot of stress on the body.  Common musculskeletal complaints during this time include ongoing pelvic instability, lower back pain, upper back and neck pain, carpal tunnel and overuse injuries of the wrist.

In addition to treatment of specific conditons we also provide advice regarding returning to your normal fitness routine.
