During pregnancy your body has to adapt to carry a significant increase in weight, as well as coping with chemical and emotional changes.
These adaptations can lead to stress and strain on ligaments, muscles, organs and joints within the body. Additionally for many women who have had previous strains before pregnancy from poor posture, lifestyle or trauma, pregnancy can exacerbate pre-existing problems. Whether it is your first born or your fifth, pregnancy can be challenging for all women.
Osteopathic treatment can provide relief to areas affected during pregnancy and labour, by
• Reducing pain and tension in the low back, pelvis, neck and shoulders
• Releasing muscle aches and strains
Even if you are enjoying a straight forward pregnancy, many Mums-to-be visit us for a ‘check up’ treatment during their third trimester prior to labour.
With the arrival of a new baby, many Mums often push their own needs to the side following birth. Birth can be difficult for both Mum and Baby, and so we welcome new Mums to come in for a treatment any time after birth.
Osteopathy can also be helpful and relaxing for your baby after birth. If you are interested in a post-natal check up for you and your baby feel free to contact us.
• Reduce strain or tension in the low back and pelvis after pregnancy and labour
• Helps you to relax and unwind
• Offer advice and recommendations for pelvic floor exercises and stretches
We welcome all new patients. Call to arrange an appointment today.
