Topic: The Role of Physiotherapy in the Management of Caesarean Section Rehabilitation

Speaker: Katie Kelly

Session Description: Caesarean birth presents its own distinct set of rehabilitation challenges. A growing body of evidence supports a variety of treatment strategies to effectively manage caesarean specific concerns, such as postoperative ambulation, incisional pain management, and myofascial restriction of C-section scar. Physiotherapists have the education and skills necessary to address these concerns and should be considered pivotal in caesarean rehabilitation.

Sujet : Le rôle de la physiothérapie dans la gestion de la réadaptation après une césarienne

Conférencier : Katie Kelly

Description de la séance : Les naissances par césarienne présentent leur propre lot de défis en matière de réadaptation.

Les physiothérapeutes ont la formation et les compétences nécessaires pour dissiper ces préoccupations et devraient jouer un rôle central dans la réadaptation après une césarienne.
