Postpartum Physiotherapy

Important for new or seasoned moms regardless of if you’ve had a vaginal or caesarean birth, beginning as early as 4 weeks postpartum. Whether your little one is 3 months or 13 years old, it's never too late to benefit from pelvic health physiotherapy.

Find out:

  • How to reconnect and retrain YOUR core to create optimal support for your body after birth.

  • How to prevent, manage, reduce or resolve common postpartum conditions including low back/ pelvic girdle/ tailbone pain, urinary/fecal incontinence, prolapse, pubic symphysis dysfunction, diastasis (abdominal separation), internal pelvic pain during intercourse.

  • How to decrease scar tension from birth (caesarean or vaginal) to decrease pain and help your core to work effectively.

  • What exercises are efficient to strengthen your core (kegels aren't always the answer).

  • Effective steps to return to the exercise and sports you enjoy after giving birth.

*Postpartum appointments that occur as early as 4 weeks consist of external assessment and treatment only unless specified by your doctor/midwife. Internal assessments after birth can begin after your 6 weeks follow up with your doctor/midwife.

Your individualized treatment may include any of the following:

  • Education about the causes that can be contributing to your symptoms.

  • Internal pelvic floor manual therapy to decrease tension and increase strength/support for your pelvic and whole body system.

  • External manual therapy.

  • Manual scar release techniques to improve core function and decrease pain (vaginal, cesarean, episiotomy, appendectomy).

  • Acupuncture and dry needling.

  • Craniosacral therapy.

  • Kinesiotape.

  • Guidance and individualized support with returning to exercise and sports you love.

  • Home exercise program tailored to your goals which may involve strength training, yoga and Pilates based therapeutic exercises.

All physiotherapy consultations are one-on-one with your registered physiotherapist in a private treatment room.
