We will also guide you on appropriate exercises or specific stretching to compliment the treatment we are providing. Contact us today to arrange an appointment.

Why visit an osteopath when pregnant?

Osteopathy provides many benefits for pregnant women. Some of the reasons a woman may consult an osteopath during her pregnancy include:

– ensure their body adjusts well to the physical changes of pregnancy
– reduce the effects of extra strain, weight and pressure on the joints of the spine and lower limb
– relief from lower back pain, middle back pain, upper back pain and neck pain
– relief from sciatica
– reduce effects of swelling that can often result in carpal tunnel syndrome
– manage pelvic instability and pelvic girdle pain
– closer to labour ensuring optimal foetal position to assist in ease of labour

Reducing the physical strain on the body allows precious energy to go into growing a healthy bub and enjoying a comfortable pregnancy.
