Very strong pain not only makes it more difficult for a young mum to live normally, but can also have disastrous effects: perineal pain may cause urinary incontinence that appears even several months after childbirth and intensifies.Pelvic pain (sacrum, pubic symphysis) causes changes to mum's body posture which may become permanent because of hormones working during the early stage of puerperium.
Physiotherapy during that period usually involves very simple physical techniques which are well know from other fields of rehabilitation and give a quick effect.
