Although pregnancy can be an exciting time, it can present some unique challenges as expectant mothers experience changes to muscles, ligaments and joints as their body shape and hormones change.
Camberwell Sports & Spinal Medicine’s philosophy is to provide the best expertise whoever you are, whatever the aim. Our team can help women manage these changes, providing expert care and advice during pregnancy, childbirth and beyond. We know that for those who are pregnant or have recently given birth, the needs are always quite specific to the individual. It is our aim to provide the most comprehensive, holistic care possible with the highest level of expertise tailored to your needs.
Musculoskeletal problems that expectant mothers may experience include:
Whether you need assistance managing a specific issue or advice on returning to sport and exercise after childbirth, we are here to help. Our holistic team approach to pre and post-natal care includes massage or myotherapy to address swelling and odema or leg pain, Osteopathy to address back and pelvic pain and other body changes, Physiotherapy to help with pelvic floor retraining and muscle recruitment or Podiatry for feet that are cracked or nails that aren’t so easy to reach anymore. CSSM can provide options for your health needs.
As health professionals we have your health and the health of your baby as our primary focus. We believe a team approach provides the best health outcomes and with this in mind, ongoing correspondence with your GP, midwife or obstetrician are naturally part of our service to patients.

While GP’s and specialists seeking the best care for their patients often refer patients to see our team, a referral is not necessary. We understand that many patients are nervous about their pregnancy and possible outcomes, with this in mind, ongoing correspondence with your GP, midwife or obstetrician are naturally part of our service to patients.
