Burnaby Physiotherapists Advocate Physiotherapy During Pregnancy

Burnaby Physiotherapists' Newest Article Explains How the Pain of Physiological Changes May Be Controlled With Physiotherapy

BURNABY, BC--(Marketwired - February 25, 2016) - Absolute PhysioCare & Sports Rehab, a team of Burnaby-based physiotherapists, has published an article about how physiotherapy can ease common symptoms associated with the pelvis and pelvis structure during pregnancy.

During pregnancy a woman's body undergoes many changes to allow for development and delivery of the infant. These physiological and anatomical changes affect the pelvic floor musculature, which stretch from the pubic bone to the base of the spine, and include connective tissue, joints and nervous tissue.

Pelvic pain, hip pain, pubic symphysis pain, low back pain, muscular pain, nerve impingement (due to swelling), and urinary and fecal incontinence are all symptoms commonly associated with pregnancy.

To help deal with these issues, the article recommends women practice diaphragmatic breathing for relaxation, keep active with safe activities (walking, swimming, non-contact sports), and prop up joints with supportive body pillows.

The article concludes by advising that a licensed physiotherapist can examine your pelvic floor to determine if you need to strengthen it through kegels (or learn how to relax it) first. If you are experiencing pelvic pain, a therapist might recommend a hip belt, which can help support the abdomen and reduce aches and pains. They will also be able to advise on birthing positions and pain management strategies during delivery.
