Physiotherapy is appropriate for a number of musculoskeletal pains and aches experienced during pregnancy.
The most common problem is Back Pain; your body is carrying a lot of extra weight and your back and pelvis will bear the brunt of it. In addition, those all important abdominal muscles are being stretched so they are no longer as efficient in providing your spine with support. Throw in the hormonal changes and put in engineering terms you have to carry a greater load with less support! Pain below your bump is often referred to pelvic pain, most associated with pregnancy as the joints of the pelvis become mobile and thus can be a source of pain. Here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic we have Physiotherapists who are skilled at assessing and managing these problems.
Contact us at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic in Dublin 4 for further information and advice on any of the above.
Some additional advice
If you have any concerns while pregnant, please report them to your GP or obstetrician. Do not suffer in silence. If in doubt, get it checked out. Not all aches and pains are part of being pregnant. Don’t leave it until your baby is born, you’ll have enough to do then!
