Our physiotherapists are trained in helping women to optimize their physical health during pregnancy, labour, delivery, and the postnatal period.It is important to understand the healthy progression of becoming pregnant and delivering a baby as it has a lifetime's worth of effects (mostly good). Following an ACL tear, most people will have a surgery and/or undergo extensive physical rehab for a significant time period. After a woman goes through a very laborious process of delivering a baby, her health is often neglected as the baby's care is now in the forefront.
We are here to help support the mother in this very joyous and life-altering experience.
We do functional assessments and provide treatment plan to ensure that the mom-to-be is aligned and is feeling physically well for the duration of her pregnancy. Some of that treatment may involvemanual therapy, prenatal yoga therapy with a Certified Yoga Instructor, and prescription exercises to make sure all the right muscles are strong, flexible and coordinated. We help to prevent problems that may arise during the normal process of pregnancy and labour and delivery.
Our physiotherapists are trained to help you and your loved ones prepare for your big day. It is normal to feel nervous about how you are going to cope with the pain or deal with current ongoing injuries. Our physiotherapists will be able to reassure you as we are trained with the anatomy and physiology knowledge to help best prepare your body and mind for the labour and delivery that you want.
Often, if the mother does not get the attention she needs immediately following the labour and delivery process, she can develop conditions that may affect her optimal health years later!
Even if the birth occurred 20 - 30 years later, it can leave lasting effects on your body. Treatment includes full body assessment of scars or instabilities associated with the delivery
