Postural problems in pregnancy

A woman’s body changes during pregnancy. Those changes include the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture that 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. Osteopathy could help relieve the stresses and strains on your body during pregnancy and after birth.

How Osteopathy can help

Osteopathic treatment involves soft tissue massage and joint articulation around the pelvic girdle, hips and lumbar spine and can be very effective at improving overall function in the muscles and joints, leading to greater comfort and flexibility. We can also give advice on posture.
