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.
New moms may also experience trouble controlling their bowel movement or passing gas as well as perineal pain if they had a tear during delivery and giving birth. Pelvic pain during intercourse and weakened pelvic floor muscles are common post-partum complaints.
A pelvic health physiotherapist is the best practitioner to consult if you have recently given birth and are experiencing any of these post-partum symptoms. A trained physiotherapist uses internal assessments and treatments as well as education and exercise therapy to reduce or eliminate the post-partum symptoms.
A physiotherapist will run a few tests such as performing a musculoskeletal exam, a diastasis recti exam, scar mobilization, manual PT, and pelvic floor muscle motor control training and exercises. Your physiotherapist may also recommend exercises you perform at home to reduce the discomfort and pain associated with post-partum pregnancy.
