Enhancing Women’s Health: Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for Pre-Post Natal Care

Pregnancy and childbirth are transformative experiences that can impact a woman’s body, sometimes leading to injuries or discomfort. At Union Health and Performance in Squamish, we focus on pre-post natal injury management through pelvic floor physiotherapy.

Understanding Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy:

Pelvic floor physiotherapy involves exercises and techniques targeted at the muscles of the pelvic floor. These muscles support the bladder, uterus, and bowels, and maintaining their strength and function is crucial, especially during and after pregnancy.

Benefits of Pelvic Floor Physiotherapy for Pre-Post Natal Injury Management:

  1. Strengthens Pelvic Muscles: It helps in strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, which can be weakened during pregnancy and childbirth.
  2. Reduces Incontinence: Many women experience urinary incontinence postpartum, and pelvic floor physiotherapy can effectively address this issue.
  3. Alleviates Pain: It can reduce discomfort in the pelvic region, lower back, and hips, common during and after pregnancy.
  4. Improves Sexual Health: Strengthening the pelvic floor also contributes to better sexual health and function.
  5. Aids in Recovery Post-Delivery: Physiotherapy is vital in the recovery process, helping to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state.

Our physiotherapists work closely with each patient, offering guidance on lifestyle changes, nutritional advice, and techniques to manage stress and anxiety, which are often part of the pregnancy experience.
