Pain is very common in pregnancy and post-partum but this does not mean it is normal or needs putting up with. Pain is usually an indicator that some part of the body is not adapting to pregnancy as it should. We treat women throughout pregnancy and after delivery. Back pain, indigestion, bladder, bowel and sexual dysfunction, pubic symphsis dysfunction, pelvic girdle pain and rib pain are just some of the symptoms that pregnant women frequently have to put up with.
Osteopaths are trained to assess and treat mechanical or functional issues that often lead to these problems. Pregnant women are often surprised to find an increase in headaches and sinus problems. Gentle osteopathic techniques can be useful for those symptoms also. We can provide gentle exercises or stretches to keep aches and pains at bay and help towards a healthy, happy pregnancy. Post partum, our Osteopaths can help with a ‘Mum MOT’ for issues associated with a natural delivery and caesarean section births.
As our team includes homeopaths, acupuncturist and massage therapists many of the issues that arise in pregnancy can be dealt with in a non-invasive, gentle, baby-friendly approach.
