Specialist physiotherapy treatment during pregnancy for women in Newmarket

Mild symptoms of discomfort in your lower back or in your pelvis – at the front in the symphysis pubis or at the back over your sacroiliac joints – are quite common during pregnancy. Most women will experience some kind of low back or pelvic girdle pain as the growth of your baby changes your posture, stretches your tummy muscles and alters the way you move.

Your body has an amazing ability to adapt but if your symptoms become persistent or they start to interfere with your enjoyment of normal activities, then it’s important to seek help as early as possible from someone who specialises in antenatal care. Our Women’s Health Physio, Henriette, offers treatment to relieve pregnancy-related pain and will teach you how to manage your symptoms so you can keep moving comfortably for the whole of your pregnancy.

How specialist physiotherapy treatment can help during your pregnancy

Gentle ‘hands-on’ physiotherapy treatment with Henriette will help move stiff joints and relieve sore, tight muscles and she will be able to advise you on appropriate antenatal supports and better ergonomics to enable to you manage between sessions.

A safe, effective exercise programme will also build strength in your abdominals and pelvic floor and around your hips and lower back to provide better support for your bump, as well as improve your posture and reduce the load on your joints. Henriette is trained to teach Antenatal Clinical Pilates and will help you remain as fit as possible during your pregnancy, which will also help you recover more quickly after your baby is born.
