Many changes occur to the female body during pregnancy and afterwards. Structures are placed under a new level of load with the added influence of hormonal shifts and a growing baby alongside the demands of day to day life. This can alter posture, balance and the strength of the pelvic floor. It can also result in diastasis recti. All of which can impact symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, pelvic girdle pain and wrist pain.
As a mother, Nikki is familiar with the associated aches and pains of pregnancy and beyond and is experienced in treating both pre and post natal musculoskeletal clientele. This service will assess, identify and treat your changing body in a safe and effective manner.
Treatment can utilise manual techniques, supportive taping, retraining of the pelvic floor, scar tissue mobilisation in C section births and generalised strength and conditioning of the body in its pre natal experience and in post natal recovery.
