Pregnancy Pilates Video

A little upgrade from the match-stick diagrams I have been giving out for years now!  This video is for my pregnant patients who present with Pelvic pain to my clinic. I nearly always advise reducing the activities that provoke pain and increasing the movements that promote muscle balance. The exercises in this video are gentle; however make sure you listen to your body so if you don’t feel good make sure you stop and ask advice from your GP, obstetrician or Chartered Physiotherapist. If you feel good, then enjoy! Any questions just ask, M

I read this article today and it made me think of all the patients I have seen who have reported the feeling of relief after they have had a Pelvic Floor Assessment; the sense of relief that comes with knowledge and awareness.

They are often sorry that they put it off.

The aim of Physiotherapy is to facilitate and teach correct pelvic floor contractions so that your Exercise program  becomes effective. It’s a simple starting point and an opportunity to invest in your future health.
