Abdominal Muscles

Are you eager to strengthen & tone your tummy after giving birth?

When you consider how much your tummy muscles have to loosen, stretch and separate to accommodate your growing baby while pregnant, is it any wonder your muscles feel weak and lack tone after giving birth?

You may even feel a gap or separation between your abdominal muscles (2/3 of women experience this) or a triangular peak when you sit up.

Weak and separated abdominal muscles can lead to back pain and poor posture as the abdominal muscles play an important role in supporting and stabilising the spine.

The good news is, we can help you regain your abdominal muscle strength, preventing back issues from arising.

What to expect

Following a physical assessment of your abdominal muscles and posture, your Physiotherapist will design a personalised abdominal muscle re-building program designed specifically for you.

The program will include:

  • Advice on how to modify your activity and posture after the birth of your baby and guidance on returning to regular exercise.
  • A simple exercise program designed to retrain a stable and strong core so your abdominal muscles once again become functional.

To rebuild your core and abdominal muscles the right way after the birth of your baby, contact us for an appointment with one of our Women’s Health Physios today.
