While some mild back or pelvic joint pain is common during pregnancy, in some cases it can create significant discomfort and limit your movement and activities. Assessment and treatment of the problem will include posture re-education, muscle strengthening and the fitting of an appropriate support. This can provide relief and minimise discomfort.

Gynaecological Care: Following certain gynaecological procedures your Physiotherapist will provide advice on positions of comfort and gentle exercise. As you recover from surgery your Physiotherapist will advise you on appropriate exercise to facilitate your return to full fitness.
