We Treat Pregnant Women

Pregnancy is an amazing time of rapid changes that occur within a women’s body as the baby grows. Due to the structural and hormonal changes that occur, the ligaments soften, the curvature of the spine changes, the weight of the baby moves the centre of gravity forward, and the normal mechanics within the body are disrupted. Osteopathic care focuses on ensuring the body is mobile to adopt the changes necessary to cope with the demands placed on the body. Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy may help prevent problems from arising or alleviate problems already present from pre-existing injuries.

Our Osteopaths use a number of treatment modalities during pregnancy including soft tissue massage, muscle stretching, gentle joint manipulation and exercise prescription. Treatment techniques are extremely gentle and are carefully selected for each patient.

We have a specially developed pregnancy pillow that lies on top of the treatment table, it has an adjustable padded hole in the centre for the expanding abdomen allowing the mother to lie comfortably on her stomach as so her back to be worked on easily.

Conditions in pregnancy our Osteopaths may be of assistance with include:

  • Pubic Pain and Pelvic Floor problems
  • Back and neck pain (pre and post-natal)
  • Tingling in the hands and feet
  • Circulatory problems including swelling in the arms and legs
  • Headaches
  • Fluid retention
