Aches and pains during pregnancy
Starting a family can be one of the most exciting and joyful events in your life. But as your body transforms, sometimes your muscles and joints may need some extra love to help you feel your best.
Did you know that Physiotherapy is a safe and effective way to alleviate pains during pregnancy?
Aches and pains are not uncommon during pregnancy. More than 50% of women experience lower back pain caused by changes in their body and an increase in hormones. As your breasts and belly grow, the added weight can create tension in your upper back, neck and shoulder girdle causing discomfort and pain that can have an effect on your enjoyment of this time in your life.
As an expert in assessing the underlying cause of joint, nerve and muscle issues, your Lifecare physiotherapist can help your body to best accommodate the changes you are experiencing so that you can continue to keep active and healthy.
Lifecare can help you get better, feel better and stay better.
Through a combination of treatment, advice on posture, exercise and stretches, your Lifecare physiotherapist will help to alleviate these pre-natal pains, and provide you with advice on how to strengthen your body to prevent more aches from developing.
Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to put up with aches and pains! This is a special moment in your life and it’s important that you can enjoy it.
