After having a baby, half of all women have a weakness in either their tummy or pelvic floor area – over a third suffer with complex pelvic pain. This can create instability and weak core strength and results in altered transfer load, back pain, pelvic pain, bladder and bowel weakness.
A Mummy MOT helps women avoid these distressing and often embarrassing symptoms. The assessment by a specialist physiotherapist of the tummy gap and pelvic floor will enable the creation of a bespoke her lifestyle and fitness goals, including specific and safe post-natal exercises to regain stability and optimum function.
