Pregnancy is a life changing process but that doesn’t mean that you have to suffer through it.
Structural problems during pregnancy can affect the relative freedom of movement of the embryo due to restrictions and general tension, as well as the efficacy of labour and birth.

Also, after giving birth you need to recover quickly and efficiently so you can deal with the many demands of motherhood.

A wide range of problems,from spinal and hip issues to pelvic floor problems and symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD) can benefit with osteopathy.
If you’re unsure, get in touch with us and we can discuss your case.

Pregnant women undergo physiological and postural changes throughout their pregnancy. These changes may cause various complaints which include:


  • Sciatica and low back pain
  • SPD (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)
  • Generalized  muscular pain
  • Pelvis and buttock pain
  • Breathlessness and difficulty in deep breathing due to rib and diaphragm restrictions as well as costochondritis / Tietze syndrome.
  • Rib and restrictions of the chest in addition to tension with the organs attached onto the diaphragm can exacerbate the sickness and heartburn experienced.

Osteopathy can be effective in resolving these mechanical complaints, this would facilitate a more relaxed and easy pregnancy with minimum discomfort and stress for both mother and baby.

Our treatment approach for expectant mothers is gentle and considered. We use a variety of techniques depending on the nature of the complaint, ranging from gentle indirect cranial work to more direct structural techniques and soft tissue work.
