What Conditions Benefit From Biofeedback Training

Mum Needs Care Too

Pregnancy affects a woman in many ways, but especially physically where major changes occur to your body, from weight gain to swelling and tenderness, organ compression and the release of the hormone Relaxin to soften tissues and muscles to prepare your body for childbirth.

A woman’s pelvis also expands during pregnancy to prepare for delivery, and this can sometimes lead to alignment issues in the pelvis and back, causing lower back pain or sciatic nerve compression.

And these physical and physiological changes don’t reverse overnight once your baby is born, placing your body at risk from a number of injuries and conditions.

Considering the changes a woman’s body goes through during pregnancy and birth, it is madly optimistic to think things will miraculously bounce back to normal.

The well-being of the baby is, of course, paramount – but focus on the mum’s recovery is also vital.

A Typical Treatment Plan

Reducing the Risks

Once baby is delivered it’s very important to work on strengthening the pelvic floor and abdominals to help realign the pelvis as it shifts back into pre-pregnancy position.

As such, new mothers should avoid exercises that cause a bearing down on their pelvic floor until core control, pelvic floor strength, and bladder control has been regained.

Incorrect activities and exercises can aggravate postpartum symptoms and discomforts, potentially leaving new mothers with unnecessary pain and dysfunction, such as urinary incontinence.

Restoring stability and strength will help to prevent weakness in the pelvic floor, abdominal wall and pelvis later in life.

PelviPower PreNatal Strengthening

Childbirth is an immense challenge for the body and the pelvic muscles especially. Biofeedback training lets you train your pelvic floor effectively and without exertion during pregnancy, ensuring you experience as few complaints as possible before and after giving birth.

PelviPower Recovery After Childbirth
Pelvic floor training after childbirth is an important preventive measure and helps the new mother to heal. Hormonal changes during pregnancy and the stress of childbirth cause a great deal of strain on the pelvic floor. Effective pelvic floor training with PelviPower is an ideal method to ensure good recovery of your pelvic floor.

PelviPower Magnetic Field Therapy (MFT) uses repetitive magnetic impulses to trigger comfortable but powerful contractions of the pelvic floor muscles and surrounding muscles.

With contractions much stronger than you can achieve yourself, the function, coordination and strength of the pelvic floor is improved, all while training in your own clothes.
