Women's Health

Common pregnancy-related pain conditions include neck, back and pelvic pain, thumb pain (de quervain's synovitis) and plantar fasciitis. Of these issues, the most common is pelvic girdle pain caused by pelvic joint instability, which 45% of women suffer from during pregnancy. The increased production of hormone relaxin during pregnancy in preparation for the labour process lead to loosening and weakening of tendon and ligament in different body parts, which lead to pain as the soft tissues are more prone to get overused or overloaded 

Our physiotherapists use simple stretching and low-intensity strengthening exercises to increase joint stability and solve pain issues.
