Prevention and Pain Reduction Strategies in Pregnant Women Using Non-Invasive Physiotherapeutic Methods. A Literature Review

Abstract

Pain is a common discomfort that significantly affects daily functioning. Pharmacotherapy, while effective in alleviating pain, often fails to address the underlying cause of the problem. This is not always the recommended approach. Pregnancy presents challenges in terms of treatment, as the well-being of the mother directly impacts the well-being of the child. However, ensuring comfort and safety for both parties is not always feasible. Pregnant women experience various discomforts associated with their transitional state. Nevertheless, due to fetal health considerations, not all conventional therapeutic measures can be applied. The use of pharmacotherapy and invasive methods poses the risk of adverse effects on the fetus.


This paper provides a review of effective and non-invasive methods for pain and discomfort reduction in pregnant women, as employed in physiotherapy.


Keywords: pain, pain prevention, pregnancy, childbirth, physiotherapy for pregnant women, yoga, prenatal massage.
