Osteopathy in Pregnancy

The Norfolk Clinic are pleased to announce that Verity can now treat pregnant patients. Osteopathic care during pregnancy can be used to relieve or prevent symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, Sciatica and more enabling women to feel pain free, relaxed and energetic.

During pregnancy the body goes through some amazing changes but can put pressure on the body causing pain and discomfort. Osteopathy uses a multitude of techniques to treat disease or dysfunction in the musculoskeletal system. In the case of pregnancy it can be invaluable in helping the patient’s body to adapt to the changes that occur during pregnancy.

Benefits of Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy

We treat all our patients as an individual and although you may be aware of the common symptoms during pregnancy such as back pain and Sciatica we can also help treat the following:

  • Neck ache
  • Headaches
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Rib and mid back pain
  • Position of the baby

As well as treating aches and pains associated with being pregnant we can also help to prepare your body for labour. We can help ensure that the pelvis and uterus are correctly balanced and aligned and can help with discomfort of the later pregnancy, and can also help the baby turn into a better position.

Benefits of Osteopathic treatments after labour

Back pain and discomfort may well continue after the baby is born. Giving birth can be a very traumatic experience for both mother and baby and Osteopathic treatment is effective at helping both to recover.

During labour and delivery a tremendous amount of pressure will be put on the back and pelvis and can have an effect on the mother both mentally and physically.

Having a baby is a very demanding job and can put strain on the back especially whilst doing heavy duties such as lifting the baby out of the cot, lifting a heavy car seat and carrying the baby in the wrong postition. Osteopathic treatment can help the mother return to normal by using various techniques to help relax and prevent more painful symptoms from developing.
