Understanding the Changes: How We Can Help

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes profound changes, from increased pelvic floor load to the stretching of ligaments and shifts in posture. These changes, while natural, can lead to discomfort and pain in various parts of the body such as the back, shoulders, knees, and more. Muscle weakness may also occur, potentially leading to urinary incontinence and a weakened core.


At Milestone Physio & Wellness Clinic, our goal is to manage these changes effectively through Pre-natal and Post-natal Physiotherapy. Our therapies utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques aimed at ensuring a smooth pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum recovery.
