Combat Common Problems With Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy In London
Pelvic floor exercises are some of the most important activities during and after pregnancy.
Our physiotherapists in London can work with you prevent many problems that occur due to damage to the pelvic floor, including:
- Issues with incontinence. Many pregnant women experience urinary incontinence, particularly in the later stages of pregnancy. Pelvic floor exercises can help you have more control over the bladder and reduce the frequency of leakage. They work by strengthening the muscles in this area.
- Problems with pelvic pain. Pregnancy can cause various forms of pelvic pain, including pubic symphysis dysfunction and lower back pain. Physiotherapy can provide relief through tailored exercises and manual therapy.
- Reduce the risk of suffering from a prolapse. Physiotherapy can help prevent or manage prolapse by strengthening the supporting muscles.
Pelvic floor physiotherapy can also prepare you for labour. Along with helping to strengthen your pelvic floor, we can teach relaxation techniques to help you stay calm during birth. Staying relaxed can help prevent the pelvic floor muscles from tensing up, so can potentially reduce the risk of tearing or episiotomy.
It can also assist with your postpartum recovery and assist the healing process.
Along with physiotherapy, PelviCare offers a wide range of other services to women at all stages of life, including during the menopause.
