Osteopathy deals with Pregnancy and Back PainOsteopathy deals with Pregnancy and Back Pain – The hormonal changes, postural adaptations and the extra weight of carrying a baby during pregnancy can lead to discomfort, aches and pains in the sacroiliac joints, the groin, coccyx, pelvis and upper thighs. However low back pain, sciatica and generalised backache does not have to be the overwhelming experience of pregnancy. Rather, the intervention of an osteopath can alleviate much of the discomfort through massage techniques, mobilisation and stretching of the joints in the time leading up to labour. Postnatal therapy is also useful in getting the body back to shape and easing the passage into early motherhood.
