Pregnant women undergo physiological changes throughout their pregnancy. These changes may cause various complaints which include:
- Sciatica and low back pain
- SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)
- Generalized low back pain and muscular pain
- Pelvis and buttock pain
- Breathlessness and difficulty in deep breathing due to rib and diaphragm restrictions
Osteopathy can be effective in resolving these mechanical complaints, this would facilitate a more relaxed and easy pregnancy with minimum discomfort and stress.
Our treatment approach for expectant mothers is gentle and considered. We use a variety of techniques depending on the nature of the complaint, ranging from gentle indirect cranial work to more direct structural techniques and soft tissue work.
