Pregnancy Related Conditions

Being pregnant, doesn't mean that you have to stop working out. Hydrotherapy exercise is a great way to let the water take the weight of the baby and offer enormous relief to the pregnant body. It's a great way to keep fit and active while you're pregnant.

Some women experience recurring pain and mobility problems, before or after childbirth, caused by a condition known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) or Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP). This is a fairly common pregnancy-related complaint in which the pelvic joints become unstable, causing mild to severe pain.

In fact, it is thought to affect one in four pregnant women to varying degrees, with 7% of sufferers continuing to experience severe symptoms after the birth. A programme of hydrotherapy, manipulation and floatation in the wellness pool can help to treat this effectively.
