Pre and post-natal pain?
During and after your pregnancy, your body obviously experiences a great deal of changes in a relatively short space of time.
With all these changes taking place, and with all of the planning and stresses you may be feeling, becoming an expert on relevant exercises may not be top on your list of priorities. Fortunately, ESPH is here to help guide you through this time and ensure that the pain is kept to a minimum.
ESPH offers pre and postnatal Pilates classes, providing you with tried and tested stretches and exercises delivered by an experienced professional. Not only will these classes help you to alleviate any aches and pains you may be suffering from, they will also give you the health and wellbeing benefits of Pilates prior to and following childbirth. The main benefits of Pilates include:
- General fitness, health and toning
- Posture improvement
- Improved circulation and joint mobilisation
- Improved co-ordination and balance
- Stress reduction and a feeling of calm
Being pregnant causes your posture to change, increasing the forces of gravity on several key areas. This can often cause unusual stresses to the lower back and pelvis, as well as in other key areas. Physiotherapy at ESPH could help relieve this pain and our team of experienced physiotherapists will be able to advise you about postural change to stop the problem recurring.
ESPH recognises and understands the physiological and psychological strains of pregnancy, and takes a caring approach to your pregnancy, honed from several decades experience in assisting others in your situation.
