A woman’s body goes through physical and hormonal changes that can cause unforeseen aches and discomfort affecting their overall daily function. During pregnancy, women gain 25 to 35 pounds on average and this increase in weight gain can cause significant strain on the musculoskeletal system. During pregnancy, any activity such as walking, standing or even sitting can be a challenge.
Today, many physicians recommend physiotherapy to relieve the pain and discomfort that pregnant woman are faced with.
Our qualified physiotherapists will perform a thorough assessment and examination of the joint mobility, muscle imbalances and strength, sensation testing and functional limitations.
