Along with the joys of pregnancy comes the not so celebrated back pain, the pelvic floor weakness, the shooting pain of sciatica and the numbness of carpal tunnel.
Women tend to take these problems in their stride and see it as part and parcel of being pregnant, but it doesn’t have to be.
Sciatica can also become quite debilitating as pressure on the sciatic nerve can lead to backache, weakness in the legs, numbness and even tingling. With manual treatment as well as stretching exercises, symptoms can be reduced and in some cases relieved.
With a pre and post natal trained Campbelltown Physio and regular appointments throughout your pregnancy, many common complaints can be helped, in particular, lower back pain, as pregnancy progresses and the centre of gravity shifts.
Our highly experienced Campbelltown Physios can provide hands on therapy, home exercises and a program to participate safely in our Physio Ex classes, here at the Campbelltown practice.
If you or someone you know needs pre or post natal Physiotherapy, please call our friendly reception staff at the Campbelltown Physio practice to book an appointment today. Alternatively you can press the button that’s below to make a booking.
