During pregnancy, your body undergoes many changes to help care for your baby and prepare for birth. Changes in hormone levels leading to softer ligaments, as well as weight distribution changes can give rise to new aches and pains that slow you down and stop you from performing your normal exercise routine. This can include:
Contrary to what we sometimes hear, unless your doctor or obstetrician advises otherwise, it is generally considered safe to continue exercising and getting physical therapy during your pregnancy. Here at NExT Osteo & Rehab, we work together aiming to provide care to help keep you moving with the greatest possible comfort. Liam will carefully choose the most appropriate osteopathic techniques that you are comfortable with, ensuring to avoid putting pressure on your growing child. Alice, trained in pregnancy massage, can help in improving muscle tension and pain, circulation and swelling, and improve stress levels throughout your pregnancy. Physical therapy with Liam and Alice can be coupled with an exercise program designed uniquely for you by Carly, helping you to remain fit and active in the safest way possible throughout your pregnancy.
