Physiotherapy

Postnatal Physiotherapy In Geelong.

Physiotherapy treatments specifically tailored to support recovery after childbirth.

The female body undergoes significant changes postpartum, as it adjusts from pregnancy to the postnatal phase.

Due to these changes, many women experience discomfort and challenges as they recover. Postnatal Physiotherapy can provide support and relief during this period.

Our Women’s Health Postnatal Physiotherapists are dedicated to assisting women in this crucial phase of recovery. We do this by completing a thorough assessment of your abdominal wall, pelvic floor and whole body to determine a suitable postnatal recovery and return to exercise treatment plan.

This appointment is typically booked from 6 weeks post birth onwards.

Postnatal Care can include:

  • Management of abdominal separation
  • Prolapse support & management
  • Pelvic floor rehabilitation programs
  • Return to sport programs
  • Manage lower back and pelvic girdle pain
