50% of New Mom Experiences Mommy’s Thumbs!

Did you know about 25%-50% of new mums suffer from wrist pain call the “mommy thumb”known as De quervain tenosynovitis in the medical world. It is a very common problem with new mummies and you are definitely not alone 🙂 

Statistically on average a new mum will lift their baby 25-30x a day! With a wrist pain, it’ll be very debilitating for these mums to carry, feed, change their newborn. 

Watch our YouTube Video

In this video we educate new mums on how manage their pain via 

  1. Watching their posture 
  2. Icing the wrist 
  3. Bracing the wrist 
  4. Putting anti inflammatory drugs on the wrist 5. Massaging the thumb muscles 

These are the 5 ways you can start implementing to help improve your wrist pain symptom. I recommend doing it until you feel minimal to no pain and if you want to learn more about this problem and how to rehab it further you will need to do the following: 

1) go on to our private Facebook page “Ask Mel The Physio” and you will have access to not only the free PDF for this problem but every free educational booklet that we will be having from now onwards 🙂 

If you still have issues with your pain or if you wished to continue your rehab for full rehabilitation of this issues I strongly encouraged you to book a Telehealth consultation session with us under the website link that we provide so that myself or any of our fully qualified physiotherapist can give you a more individualised advice that are tailored for your particular needs. At Capital Physiotherapy, your initial appointment is 40-60minutes long. This allows our physios to be thorough in their assessment, as well as giving them enough time to give you treatment on the same consultation! You may contact at 0401 865 333 or have an online booking with us.
