Postpartum Physiotherapy

Your body changes in incredible ways during pregnancy and birth to accommodate for your growing uterus and baby and to allow for the birth of your baby. Although some of these changes will return to their pre-pregnancy states on their own, others don't and can lead to injury and other common postpartum conditions now or in the future. Postpartum physiotherapy will help you address these changes and improve your body and health for the short and long term.

Postpartum physiotherapy, regardless of how many months or years it has been since you gave birth, can help you:

  • Reconnect to your core and pelvic floor

  • Restore more optimal posture and breathing patterns

  • Regain mobility in your abdomen, upper back, hips and pelvis

  • Strengthen your body and improve your movement patterns to better handle the physical demands of parenthood

  • Safely and progressively return to higher level activities such as running, jumping, crossfit, etc.

  • Prevent, manage and treat common postpartum conditions such as incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse (POP), diastasis rectus abdominis (DRA), pelvic and back pain

  • Address scar tissue restrictions from cesarian & perineal scars
