During pregnancy, the body goes through significant physical, biochemical and emotional changes. Getting used to carrying up to 10kg in weight of baby, water and placenta can put a great deal of stress on the body systems. Adjusting to these changes also include changing your movement patterns, in walking, sleeping and sitting. All of this adaptation can lead to tension in the shoulders spine and pelvis.
The aim of osteopathic treatment is to allow the body to adapt more efficiently to these changes during pregnancy and to help in the process of getting you back to a pre-pregnancy state with improved strength and flexibility.
