Pre-Natal & Post-Partum Physiotherapy
We provide physiotherapy and massage therapy services for new mothers in Ottawa and Nepean to help them avoid or manage prenatal and post-partum hip, back, pelvis, and other joint/muscle pain.
Private Patient-Centred Pelvic Physiotherapy:We are pleased to grow our pelvic physiotherapy services, previously only available at our sister clinic, Motion Works Physiotherapy Orleans, a dedicated Pelvic Physiotherapy clinic in Ottawa’s east end.
At Nepean Sports Medicine & Physiotherapy Centre, we offer private, compassionate pelvic physiotherapy care in our closed-door, dedicated treatment room.
We have renovated one of our latched-door private treatment rooms down our allied health section of the clinic, to accommodate our pelvic and women’s health physiotherapy clients, away from the hustle and bustle of our physiotherapy treatment area and gym.
Women commonly experience an onset of back, hip or pelvic pain during pregnancy and following delivery. This can be the result of the many hormonal changes taking place in the body, the increased laxity of the ligaments, or the changes in posture due to weight gain during pregnancy.
During second or subsequent pregnancies, most mother encounter the added strain on the joints that results from caring for and lifting young toddlers.
Other common pregnancy and post-delivery issues women may experience, include:
- Swollen ankles & varicose veins
- Numb, tingling, painful hands & fingers
- Blocked breast ducts
- Weak abdominal muscles
- Altered pelvic floor function
