The Mummy MOT
The Mummy MOT is a comprehensive postnatal physiotherapy assessment of the abdominal and pelvic area. This checks your posture, breathing, tummy gap and pelvic floor strength.
The Mummy MOT system combines the principles of specialist physiotherapy assessment with the practice of functional re-training. Following childbirth postural changes, muscle imbalance and altered alignment remain which, if left untreated, can lead to pain, prolapse, urinary incontinence and rectus diastasis abdominis (RDA). A restorative exercise programme is designed post assessment to correct muscle imbalance, regain stability and optimum function.
The system uses swiss balls, theraband and rollers to help activate the important stabilising muscles.
The pelvic floor muscles may also be rehabilitated using all the techniques described previously where appropriate. This unique approach balances internal pelvic floor function with external lumbo- pelvic hip stability to achieve the optimum control. By following this guided programme women can return more quickly and safely to previous levels of fitness and exercise knowing that they have achieved pelvic health inside and during the postnatal period.
