A woman’s body changes during pregnancy. Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture. This can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine or pelvis.
Pregnancy can cause general aches and pains including joint and back pain and osteopathy could help!
How can an Osteopath help?
Osteopathy may help relieve the stresses and strains on your body during pregnancy and after birth.
Osteopaths utilise a range of techniques including physical manipulation, stretching and massage, and other gentle techniques such as cranial. Osteopaths believe that the healthy balance and function of the musculoskeletal framework of the body is essential to whole body health.
