Tips on improving your health

Postnatal Care

 

  After you have delivered your precious              bundle, and your body recovers from both   
  the pregnancy and the delivery, you may            think it is taking a while to feel 100%.                Persistent back and pelvic pain, thoracic            discomfort and pelvic floor issues are very          common.

New Mothers can experience the following;

  • Low back pain
  • Pelvic girdle instability and pain
  • Problems with neck and shoulder areas from lifting and breastfeeding
  • DRAM - or abdominal muscle separation
  • Weak pelvic floor or incontinence
  • Fatigue and lack of endurance

Post Natal Assessment

At Back In Strength we offer a comprehensive hour long post-natal physiotherapy assessment with a women’s health physiotherapist. This involves:

  • Pelvic floor muscle assessment
  • Prolapse and incontinence assessment
  • Assessment of the pelvis evaluating alignment, support and strength
  • Abdominal muscle separation assessment
  • Fitting abdominal binder or SRC Recovery Shorts, as needed
  • Breastfeeding/bottle feeding posture check
  • Individualised exercises and advice

All of our physiotherapy sessions attract a rebate with most private health fund providers. We utilise the HICAPS system, meaning all you need to do is pay the gap.
