Osteopathy in Pregnancy from Croxley Osteopathic Clinic

Expectant Mothers will experience massive changes in their bodies as they go through pregnancy, chemical, physical, and emotional changes happen to the body in a short space of time and these can have many different effects. The body has to get used to the addition of about 20lbs of baby, water and placenta it is carrying, this can impose great strain on the organs, joints, tissues and ligaments of the body. For the body to cope with these changes it will need to find new ways of walking, sitting and sleeping often with new aches and pains occurring.

Benefits of Osteopathy During Pregnancy for patients in Croxley Green, Rickmansworth, Watford and the Surrounding Areas

Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy can ease some of the symptoms associated with pregnancy including:-

  • Sciatica
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Groin and abdominal pain
  • Back pain, neck and shoulder pain
  • Muscular tension
  • Aches and pains in the legs and feet

I can also provide advice on breathing techniques, stretches and exercises you can do at home to maintain general health and well being through out your pregnancy.

I would advise coming to see me after the birth of your baby for an osteopathic check up and if necessary some treatment. I can help you regain your strength and flexibility while ensuring your body returns back to shape quickly. I can also try and correct any remaining strains in the back and pelvis.
