Pregnancy Physio Brisbane
Pre and Postnatal Pregnancy Physio in Brisbane
Say goodbye to lower back pain & pelvic pain & enjoy a pain free journey to motherhood!
If you’re pregnant or if you’ve recently given birth, pregnancy physio can work wonders on easing pain in your body while also building strength in all the right areas.
It goes without saying that pregnancy brings on a great deal of change within the body and it can take you time to adjust. With the changes occurring in the physical shape of your body, organ placements and hormone production, it is not uncommon to experience new-found aches and pains as your body adjusts to pregnancy or life after you give birth.
If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms during or after your pregnancy, a tailored physio program may be able to help you get back on track:
- Back and neck pain
- Rib pain
- Hip, groin pain
- Pelvic floor pain, weakness or other issues
- Abdominal pain, weakness, separation or other issues
- Incontinence, bladder or bowel issues
- Pelvic girdle pain (PGP)
- Symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD)
- Diastasis Symphysis Pubis (DSP)
- Mastitis or blocked ducts
- Injuries from childbirth: episiotomy, perineal tearing
- Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome

Our team can also liaise with your GP and obstetrician so you can be assured of a team approach throughout the entire term of your pregnancy.
Prenatal Physio: The best pre-baby therapy for easing pain and discomfort during each trimester
Prenatal physio is an excellent way for you to treat all pregnancy related aches, pains and issues. It is a safe treatment option tailored to your specific needs and adjusted as you move through each trimester.
In our prenatal physio sessions, we show you specialty taping techniques to support your spine as well as safe exercises for each stage of your pregnancy. In combination with our prenatal pilates classes, you will learn exercises that will assist with pelvic floor and core strengthening during pregnancy and optimal body functioning in preparation for labour.
We are also stockists of SRC pre and post pregnancy support garments. With all the fluctuations occurring in your body during this phase, you will need a skilled physician by your side who can correctly measure and provide the best clothing options to support your body. All our physios are highly trained to measure for these garments and can ensure you find the best and most comfortable fit.
Postnatal Physio: Strengthen your body so you can enjoy every moment with your new bundle of joy
After giving birth, the emphasis is on activating and progressively strengthening your posture, core and pelvic floor muscles. We aim to help you achieve optimum body recovery post birth without adding any extra stress to your body.
We can assess the condition of your body as soon as you’re able to come into our practice following the birth of your baby. If there’s been any abdominal separation as a result of the birth, it is best to start treating it sooner rather than later.
We can also immediately address any feeding postures that may cause pain in your body in the long term. Postural correction and strength will become very important, especially as your child grows and becomes heavier with each passing day. We offer postnatal pilates and exercise classes to help you develop your upper body strength to keep up with the increased weight of your baby and keep your posture in check.
If you are currently pregnant or have just given birth, book in for a consultation with one of our trained pregnancy physiotherapists and we can tailor a package for your prenatal and postnatal health.
