Cry Baby Mother and Baby Pilates Class at Physio Effect

Women often experience pains and musculoskeletal problems relating directly to their pregnancy, both during pregnancy and after childbirth.

These can include:

  • Low back pain

  • Thoracic pain

  • Pelvic girdle and Sacroiliac joint pain

  • Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD)

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

  • De Quervain's Tenosynovitis

  • Tendinopathies

  • Diastasis Recti (abdominal separation)

  • Pelvic Floor dysfunction

Some of these issues may hamper normal movement and function during pregnancy and may persist long after childbirth, making coping with a new baby and a return to normal activities very difficult. It is easy to dismiss these problems as “just part of pregnancy”, however certain conditions and symptoms can be significantly improved and some completely resolved with the correct treatment and management programme.

Physiotherapy can play a vital role in the prevention and management of the physical discomforts and problems that can arise from the way in which the body adapts and changes during and after pregnancy. The team at Physio Effect include specially trained physiotherapists and massage therapists who can provide treatment from bump, birth and beyond.

Our services include:

I cannot rate Nikki highly enough for pregnancy/sports massage and reflexology. I recently attended regularly through my pregnancy and it kept all the back, pelvic and shoulder niggles away! I’ve also been to the excellent cry baby classes and attended for physiotherapy. The service is first class, thank you!
