Pregnancy

What To Expect During Pregnancy

Pregnancy brings a variety of changes to the body. There are many hormonal and physiological changes when pregnant in order to provide the right environment for the developing foetus. While these changes are normal and necessary for a successful pregnancy, this rapid change in the body's structure can cause pain and discomfort.


Osteopathy can help decrease the severity of the side effects of these changes by aiding the body to adapt and align as the pregnancy progresses. Osteopathic treatment achieves this through the use of safe and effective manual therapy techniques, supporting mother and baby with minimum pain and discomfort.

Conditions That We Treat

Each mother and each pregnancy can have very different symptoms and can change multiple times throughout the duration of the pregnancy. Regions of pain and conditions can be but not limited to:
 

  • Lower back pain

  • Pelvic and pubic pain

  • Hip and glute pain

  • Sciatica

  • Mid back and rib pain

  • Neck and shoulder pain

  • Headaches

  • Carpal tunnel

  • Pins and needles/numbness

  • Fluid retention

Pregnancy & Post-Natal Treatment

At Back Into Osteopathy, we understand that attending an appointment can be sometimes stressful at the best of cases, but when carrying a child, we understand this feeling even more. We ensure that at your appointment, we will make you as comfortable as possible with the use of a pregnancy table, pillows down to extra cooling if need be.
