Pre-natal or antenatal care consists of regular examinations and follows ups by your doctor to prevent probable health problems that develop during pregnancy or treat them to improve the health of the mother and the baby. Expectant mothers may experience lower and mid back pain, muscle spasms, abdominal bulging, SIJ joint pain, bladder control problems, constipation or straining, and carpal tunnel symptoms.
The most common conditions after delivery include urinary incontinence, low back pain, diastasis recti, pelvic organ prolapse, pelvic floor muscle or ligamentous injury due to delivery, and pelvic girdle pain.
Organ prolapse or pelvic organ prolapse is due to pelvic floor muscle dysfunction. The organs like the uterus or bladder dislodge from their normal position and may cause them to protrude. The feeling of dragging and heaviness inside the vagina is one of the symptoms of organ prolapse.
Urinary incontinence occurs in men and women of all ages but it is common in the elderly. Most people resolve to live with the condition by using diapers, taking medication, and opting for surgery. However, physiotherapy is one of the most successful treatment options for increasing bladder control.
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction is a condition that affects muscles in the lower pelvic area. The pelvic floor consists of muscles that surround the pelvic bone and support the weight of organs in that area such as the bladder, rectum, prostate and uterus.
