Pregnancy Osteopath Camberwell
At Camberwell Osteopathic Clinic we’re experienced at treating women through all stages of the pregnancy.
The stresses and strains that the body is exposed to during pregnancy are enormous so optimal functionality is essential for a comfortable pregnancy. Biomechanically, the pelvis has to adapt to accommodate the growing fetus – it rotates, the ligaments become lax and your centre of gravity continually changes. It is through these changes that your body can become imbalanced and you may experience pain and discomfort. Many women use osteopathic treatment for labour preparation too, aiding the birthing process by promoting pelvic functionality.
Common complaints that women experience during pregnancy which osteopathic treatment can help are:
- lower back pain
- ‘sciatic’ pain
- mid back pain
- pelvic instability
- postural pain associated with breast feeding
- hip pain
Post-natally, osteopathic treatment can help in treating the postural problems that you develop having a newborn. Osteopathic treatment can help with:
- mid back pain associated with breastfeeding
- lower back pain associated with lifting/carrying your child
