New Mothers Physiotherapy Check

New Mother's Physiotherapy Check

Women’s Health

Our New Mothers Physiotherapy Check looks at the principles of Physiotherapy assessment with functional retraining. Following birth there are many changes to your body which we will help to restore. These can be muscle imbalances, postural changes, or altered alignment. It is important to correct these changes otherwise pain, prolapse, DRA (separation of the abdominal muscles) or UIC (bladder/bowel dysfunction) could persist.

This physiotherapy check identifies the muscle imbalances you may be suffering from through an assessment and the exercise programme we work through can help to correct these. With the aim to regain stability allowing your body to function as it used to
