Pregnancy Aches and Pains
Pregnancy is a wonderful time full of excitement and joy, but sometimes it can be overshadowed by aches and pains that you experience as your body changes.
Increasing tummy size, poor sleep cause you cannot get comfortable and a cocktail of hormones floating around mean that your altered biomechanics and physiology are affecting your ability to daily activities. These changes may cause;
- Sacroiliac Pain or Posterior Pelvic Pain
- Hip, Low Back Pain and Sciatica
- Joint Swelling
- Neck and Shoulder Pain
How We Can Help
The worst thing about all these aches and pains are the fact that most medications will hurt your baby, so it seems like there isn’t a place to turn. That’s where The Whole Body Clinic can help.
As Osteopathy is a non-invasive and safe treatment modality, we have helped many pregnant women get through these painful moments and can get you back on track and excited again.
Using gentle manual techniques such as massage, stretching, muscle energy techniques and indirect techniques (such as Counter Strain), we can assist your body to adapt to these structural changes and correct any restrictions that occur as your baby grows.
We can also assist with strengthening muscles with a specific program to help you offload painful structures during pregnancy and help build your strength back up after birth to help you with the demands of breast feeding and carrying your new baby, including pelvic floor and core specific exercises.
Don't persist with pain when you could be living a better life. Discover how we can help reduce your discomfort and improve your outlook.
