Prenatal exercise for the prevention of gestational diabetes mellitus and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
In conclusion, exercise-only interventions were effective at lowering the odds of developing GDM, GH and PE.
Effectiveness of exercise interventions in the prevention of excessive gestational weight gain and postpartum weight retention: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Prenatal exercise reduced the odds of EGWG and PPWR but increased the risk of IGWG, and the latter result should be interpreted with caution because it was based on a limited number of studies (five RCTs).
Prenatal exercise (including but not limited to pelvic floor muscle training) and urinary incontinence during and following pregnancy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Prenatal exercise including PFMT reduced the odds and symptom severity of prenatal and postnatal UI and among women who were incontinent during pregnancy, exercise training was not therapeutic.
Impact of prenatal exercise on both prenatal and postnatal anxiety and depressive symptoms: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Prenatal exercise reduced the odds and severity of prenatal depression and did not alter the odds of postpartum depression or the severity of depressive symptoms, nor anxiety or anxiety symptoms during or following pregnancy.
Exercise for the prevention and treatment of low back, pelvic girdle and lumbopelvic pain during pregnancy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Compared with not exercising, prenatal exercise decreased the severity of LBP, PGP or LBPP during and following pregnancy but did not decrease the odds of any of these conditions at any time point.
Impact of prenatal exercise on maternal harms, labour and delivery outcomes: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Prenatal exercise reduced the odds of instrumental delivery in the general obstetrical population and there was no relationship between prenatal exercise and preterm/prelabour rupture of membranes, caesarean section, induction of labour, length of labour; fatigue, injury, musculoskeletal trauma, maternal harms and diastasis recti.
Musculoskeletal physical outcome measures in individuals with tension-type headache: A scoping review
TLDR
Musculoskeletal outcomes, such as trigger points, pressure pain threshold and forward head posture should inform TTH pathophysiology, diagnosis and interdisciplinary patient care.
Feasibility of conducting an active exercise prehabilitation program in patients awaiting spinal stenosis surgery: a randomized pilot study
TLDR
Results show that slight modifications to the choice of outcome measures would increase feasibility of the main study, and the absence of adverse events coupled with positive changes seen in dependant outcome measures warrant the conduct of a full-scale trial assessing the effectiveness of the intervention.
