Pregnancy Clinical Movement Therapy
Planning to get pregnant, already pregnant or recently had a baby?
Clinical Movement Therapy during Pregnancy is a fantastic way to prevent injuries, manage pain as well as keep fit and strong throughout your pregnancy. It can also assist you in your labour and recovery post-birth.
Clinical Movement Therapy is a specific exercise and strengthening session, run by a Physiotherapist, that incorporates Clinical Pilates, weights, movements, and stretches, personalised for your needs.
It helps to prevent common pregnancy complaints such as hip and back pain and can assist the abdominal muscles to regain their original strength and function after birth.
To look after your little one, you need to first look after yourself.
For best results, it’s best to start Clinical Movement Therapy before you are pregnant, however, we can tailor a program for you no matter what stage you are at and you will soon feel the benefits.
Your Physiotherapist will adjust your program to account for your varying needs throughout the trimesters and again (when you feel ready) early postnatal to ensure you a focusing on the right muscles in a safe and effective way.
Benefits of Clinical Movement Therapy
In addition to the above benefits, you can also expect:
- prevention of lower back & hip pain
- improved balance, strength and posture
- upper body strength (for all those late night feeds!)
- strong muscles that you need to use for pregnancy, labour, and newborns
- improved recovery time post-birth
- pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscle strength
You can join any of our group classes (3-4 people) as all clients receive an individual program, alternatively private sessions can be arranged – and may be booked easily online.
It is a good idea to check with your GP before commencing any exercise program and we recommend you have an initial assessment with our Women’s Health Physiotherapist Amy Tinetti before starting to check your pelvic floor muscle activation and strength.
About six week’s following birth, if you would like to bring your newborn along with you, we also have a class just for ‘New Mums‘.
To get started, you must first have a one-one initial consultation with one of our Physiotherapists, to make an appointment, simply click here to book online or call (08) 6389 2947.
