A caesarean section, more commonly known as a C-section, is a major abdominal surgery. Common complications can include pain, infection, bleeding risks, and difficulties with future pregnancies or vaginal deliveries. According to a 2021 World Health Organization report, approximately 21% of all babies are delivered by C-section worldwide. That number is estimated to increase to nearly a third of all births by 2030.
It is important for treating rehabilitation professionals to be aware of post-operative considerations when working with these patients. This webinar overviews post-operative considerations, abdominal care, pain management, scar tissue mobility, and progressive rehabilitation steps for the return to exercise and daily activities following a C-section.
This webinar aims to educate rehabilitation providers on the unique treatment precautions and post-operative considerations for persons following a caesarian section.
This webinar recording consists of a 70-minute presentation, a 35 minute question and answer video and additional resources.
This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
