Pregnancy

Pregnancy is a time when women are more aware of the workings of their body. It produces the largest postural change that a woman’s body will undergo. For many years, osteopaths have used their skills to help relieve the aches and pains caused by weight and posture changes during and after pregnancy.

For many women pregnancy means having to cope with a whole range of symptoms from back pain to morning sickness. As the baby grows in the womb, its extra weight results in a changed centre of gravity and posture changes from week to week. This can lead to a variety of aches and pains. As breast weight increases, this also causes changes and pain may occur in the upper back and neck.

What is osteopathy?

  • Osteopathy recognizes that much of the pain and disability we suffer stems from abnormalities in our body’s structure and function.
  • Osteopaths diagnose and treat problems with muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints to help the body’s natural healing ability.
  • Treatment involves gentle, manual techniques - easing pain, reducing swelling and improving mobility. Often, this involves manipulation which can result in an audible ‘crack’ which is simply the sound of gas bubbles popping in the fluid of the joints.
  • Osteopathy does not involve the use of drugs or surgery.

Why osteopathy?
Osteopathic treatment through pregnancy is a wonderfully gentle way of helping the body adapt to the changes which are taking place. The safety of mother and baby is the osteopath’s first concern.

Advice from we can help you to change your posture and learn to use your body correctly through pregnancy. We can also help to ease other side effects of pregnancy such as heartburn, indigestion, constipation and pain in the buttock, groin or leg (commonly called sciatica). Some patients, too, report reduced morning sickness after osteopathic treatment.

Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy is not new. For many years, we have used their skills to help, employing a variety of gentle techniques to ease supporting muscles and ligaments.

Every pregnancy is ‘special’. we focus on the mother as a person and take account of her emotional state and other factors as well as her physical condition.

Treatment may be supplemented by exercises and other forms of self help which we may prescribe for the mother to do at home.

We can advise on positions in labour to help prevent back problems later. Pain relief techniques can also be shown to the mother and her partner or friend so that they can help during labour.

After delivery it is advised that mother and child return for structural examination, advice and checkups and, if necessary, for treatment.

Useful Tips

  • Look after your back during pregnancy. Take particular care when lifting and carrying – especially lifting or carrying other children. Do not carry a small child on one arm for any length of time. Ask your osteopath for appropriate exercises.
  • If you stand for any length of time, keep your bottom ‘tucked in’ to reduce strain on the lower part of your spine.
  • When sitting use a cushion for support and don’t sit with your legs crossed. Avoid twisting movements. These may cause torsional strain within the pelvis.
  • Lying on your side in bed, place a pillow under ‘the bump’ to provide support and also put a pillow between your knees to prevent back strain.
  • If you prefer to lie on your back, place pillows beneath your knees to keep them bent.
  • Make sure all equipment (changing tables, pushchair, pram etc.) is at a comfortable height for you.
