Musculoskeletal pain

Physiotherapy for all women in Launceston, Tasmania

Don't suffer through unnecessary pain

Pain during pregnancy

Pregnancy can bring on a number of changes to the female body.

Ligaments become more flexible, changes to posture and body weight from the bub making a home inside your tummy, just to name a few. Being active during your pregnancy has so many benefits for both mum and bub so if you are experiencing any discomfort or pain that is stopping you from doing the things you love, then this is the appointment type for you.

Postnatal pain

There are so many changes your body has made to grow your bub and you don’t just snap back to a pre-pregnancy body when you walk out of the hospital (if that even exists).

Motherhood brings on new routines and long hours spent sitting feeding bub, rocking them to sleep or lifting and carrying them. Along with lack of sleep, this can leave your body with common aches and pains in the back, neck, pelvis, wrists, and thumb.

What to expect

Musculoskeletal initial assesment

In this appointment, Monique can:

  • Assess and diagnose your pregnancy or postnatal-related musculoskeletal pain,
  • Provide advice on managing symptoms, create an exercise program to gain strength or flexibility to cope with the new demands on your body and use hands-on techniques to ease discomfort.

This appointment does not include a pelvic floor muscle assessment.
