Osteopathy and Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the body changes to accommodate the increasing size and weight of uterus and osteopathic treatment can help to relieve aches and pains as the mother’s body tries to accommodate the growing baby. This can display as problems such as lower back pain, sciatica, hip and pelvic pain, neck and shoulder tension, nausea, indigestion, heartburn, symphysis pubis dysfunction, post-natal coccyx pain. Advice and exercises are also given as pregnancy involves considerable changes to posture.
