Therapeutic exercises after delivery

Healthy puerperas are prescribed gymnastics on the 2nd day after childbirth. There are gymnastics early (1-10 days after birth) and late (by the end of 2 months) periods. Gymnastics of the early period is expediently divided into 2 phases: the first 3 days and from 4 to 10 days. The task of gymnastics is to increase the general tone of the body and reduce the flow of blood to the pelvic area (the first phase) to improve lymph and blood circulation in the pelvic organs, to help reduce the stretched abdominal wall, to prevent the occurrence of anomalies of the uterus position (second phase).

In the first phase, exercises for the hands (flexion, circular movements) and diaphragmatic breathing are performed. Perform 4-5 times a day for 10-20 minutes, lying on his back, with 2 days - lying on his stomach, in order to improve the outflow of lochi and prevention of retroflexia of the uterus.

In the second phase, except for the previous ones, exercises for the muscles of the pelvic floor, abdomen, legs (alternate lifting of the legs, circular movements of them, imitation of the movements of the bicycle, lifting of the trunk and pelvis in the position of the legs across) are applied. All exercises are performed lying on the back, abdomen and knee-elbow position. It is advisable to carry out gymnastics 2 times a day for 30 minutes
