C-Section Recovery

C-Section Recovery

Whether planned or emergency our bodies need a lot of recovery time after a cesarean section. Without going into detail about the surgery itself, it can take many weeks, month or even years to recover.

At The elbowroom we have developed a full program to help and ensure a full recovery. Recovery starts in the hours following a section and your care givers will advise you on a series of exercises to do and to be mobile as much as possible. They recommend to continue exercises for a period at home. You then you have a 10 week check up and that is pretty much it unless you experience complications.

At The elbowroom we feel there is much more that should be done. We have written a special booklet of ways of helping you to a speedy recovery and this is at a small charge we will post it out to your house.

We are also available for a FREE consultancy anytime after your c-section on the phone to give you specific advice on how to help with the discomfort and expedite healing. In addition we provide the tailored services for you.

C-section services to help your recovery

Our clinic and clinical exercise specialists provide a range of post operative services for both c-sections and perineum recovery. These include:

  • Osteopathy to help reduce scar tissue build up and help prevent adhesions in the layers of tissues in your abdomin (adhesions are fibrous bands that form between tissues and organs, common after c-section surgery).
  • Homeopathy to help with reducing of swelling and promote healing and reduce the risk of infection. This should be taken as soon as possible after surgery. We recommend you bring remedies just in case, otherwise we have them at our clinic and can post them out to you if they cannot be collected.
  • Acupuncture to aid recovery and build up energy. Acupuncture is particularly effective in helping with nerve damage, reducing inflammation and dealing with localised pain.

To book an appointment or talk to an adviser please contact the clinic and we will be more than glad to help.

The elbowroom has an extensive range of classes for all ages and abilities. We offer such an eclectic mix to enable you to find something that will suit you. If you need any advice, please contact our class advisor who can point you in the right direction.
