Pregnancy

During pregnancy there are a whole host of postural problems that can occur due to the increasing excess anterior weight. This can be seen as hip pain, lower back pain, mid-back pain and in many other joints too! This can also be due to the hormone relaxin. This hormone allows the ligaments to relax, and therefore permits joints to move a little more than we'd like, causing pain and irritation of joints. There are many techniques that are safe and gentle, and can be used throughout pregnancy.

Your osteopath will always make sure you seek appropriate medical advice alonside osteopathy treatment if needed.
