Women's health services at the Christchurch Clinic

Overview

Are you pregnant? Would you like to learn exercises that will help you prepare for childbirth—and get back into shape afterwards? The School of Physiotherapy Clinics can help you a detailed personal assessment that puts you in control.

Clinical pilates exercises are excellent at giving you strength and control of the pelvic and abdominal muscles, and shown to be effective for a range of challenges.

The School of Physiotherapy's Christchurch Clinic in Barrington can help you improve strength in the pelvic region, as well as helping you with exercises to improve overall health during pregnancy, labour, and post-natal.

Low back pain during pregnancy

Low back pain during pregnancy is common, and can be a distressing and unwanted distraction. We will assess your back and give you a good understanding of the problem, and give you the confidence to manage your back so you can focus on more important things.
