We assess and treat women with pelvic girdle pain or symphysis pubis dysfunction. We take a rehabilitation approach and your treatment will definitely involve strength exercises! We can advise about office ergonomics when pregnant and advice on the use of a gym ball for home use or for the labour ward.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, TENS is available to rent at Tralee Physio Clinic. This is a device that can be used during labour to help distract you from labour pains. Sticky electrodes are placed on the back which are attached to a small hand held unit. The machine delivers a gentle pins and needles type stimulation to the skin and superficial nerve fibres. We provide instruction on safe and correct use of TENS. Please come in a couple of weeks prior to your due date to rent the machine.
Please see our Pilates timetable for up to date classes.
