Although having joint, pelvic and back pain during pregnancy is common, it should not be thought of as normal. The physiotherapist can discuss and assess your musculoskeletal concerns with regards to the prenatal and post-partum period (including urinary incontinence, symphysis pubis dysfunction or Diastasis rectus abdominus), and develop an appropriate treatment plan and exercise program to help with the muscle imbalances, postural changes and weakened muscles associated with pregnancy.
“I have been treated by Kate Kennedy for about 15 years. I followed her to Main Street Physio because she is simply the most talented physiotherapist I have had the pleasure of being treated by. She has seen me through a car accident and my recovery, and is very knowledgeable about persistent pain treatment and ongoing issues that arise in a mid-sixties arthritic woman’s body. Her teaching experience is a great asset in the treatment room as she has up to date information and a vast knowledge base. In addition to physical treatment she has taught me a great deal about my body and about healing, and this has been a source of independence for me. Her interpersonal skills are amazing which makes the entire experience of healing pain and living with pain much more tolerable. I feel as though I have a partner in my pursuit of wellness.”
