Pregnancy Physiotherapy in Brampton

During pregnancy, women experience several physical changes that can cause discomfort. These changes include a shift in the center of gravity, increased pressure on internal organs, and weight gain. Unfortunately, these changes often lead to back pain, pelvic pain, and urinary incontinence, all of which can be challenging to deal with.

Before the baby bump appears, a pregnant woman’s body goes through significant changes. Hormonal changes cause alterations to posture, movement, and weight distribution in the joints. Muscles, ligaments, and soft tissues also become more flexible and elastic to accommodate the growing baby and allow the pelvis to stretch. These changes are crucial to prepare the body for creating a human being and supporting the baby’s growth during the approximately nine months of pregnancy.

During their first pregnancy, more than two-thirds of pregnant women experience back pain, while one-fifth experience pelvic pain. Additionally, over 40% of pregnant women experience urinary incontinence. Half of them remain incontinent eight weeks after giving birth, and one-third experience a new onset of incontinence after childbirth.

Our team, which consists of caring and qualified professionals, can be trusted to assist you in preparing for childbirth and managing postnatal recovery. We are capable of guiding you through the changes your body will undergo, supporting you to remain active, providing strategies to alleviate pain, and helping you resume your normal activities following the birth of your child.

We are dedicated to assisting women in achieving optimal quality of life and healthy, joyful pregnancy.
