Osteopathy in Pregnancy


Pregnancy is one of the most significant changes a woman's body goes through. As well as her body's shape altering dramatically, there are also physiological changes. For instance, increased hormones can cause ligaments to loosen. These factors lead to postural changes, joint strain and altered fluid movement around the body. As a result, pregnant women often experience:

- Back and neck pain
- Pelvic pain including SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction)
- Wrist and ankle swelling
- Hip and knee pain
- Sciatica
- Indigestion

Osteopathy provides safe, effective and non-invasive treatment for these conditions. Through gentle hands-on work your osteopath can alleviate pain and help the body to adapt more comfortably to the changes experienced during pregnancy.
