Abstract

Durante a gravidez, ocorrem diversas transformações que potenciam o aparecimento de diversas complicações, como por exemplo dor lombar, incontinência urinária e diástase abdominal. O objetivo deste trabalho foi realizar uma revisão narrativa da literatura relativa ao papel que a atividade física desempenha na gravidez, com especial foco na prevenção e no tratamento das diversas complicações associadas. De acordo com os estudos científicos atuais, as várias complicações decorrentes da gravidez podem ser minimizadas ou até mesmo revertidas, recorrendo à realização de atividade física de componente aeróbica, com a presença de fortalecimento muscular e de uma forma regular. A atividade física tem um grande impacto na promoção da qualidade de vida e bem-estar desta população, atuando sobretudo na prevenção de diversas complicações associadas à gravidez.
