Osteopathy is a gentle treatment which may help relieve stresses and strains on your body during pregnancy and after birth.
A woman’s body changes during pregnancy. Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture, that can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.
Before treating you, we will evaluate not only the area which is producing the symptoms, but also associated areas that may be contributing to the issues, including past trauma, environmental factors and the family’s health history.
Osteopaths utilise a range of techniques including physical manipulation, stretching and massage and other gentle techniques such as cranial.
After labour we can also help with advice and check ups to help your body recover as quickly as possible.
