Pregnancy Strains

London Osteopathic Care treats expectant mothers for lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, sciatica, numbness and tingling, mid-back pain, shoulder pain, heart burn and nausea.

 

Pregnancy places enormous physical, chemical and emotional changes take place over a very short period of time. The body has to adapt to carry up to 20lb/10kg of baby weight, water and placenta. This imposes great strains throughout the body. Pregnancy strains your back and posture. To avoid or reduce backaches, you can:

 

•Stay physically fit, walk, and stretch regularly. If possible get one to one Pilates classes.

•Wear low-heeled shoes.

•Sleep on your side with a pillow between your legs.

•Sit in a chair with good back support.

•Avoid standing for too long.

•Bend your knees when picking things up. DO NOT bend at the waist.

•Avoid lifting heavy objects.

•Avoid gaining too much weight.

•Use heat or cold on the sore part of your back.

•Do back exercises that your provider suggests.

•Get professional osteopathic treatment to help your body through the enormous mechanical and physiological changes!  

 

London Osteopathic Care aims to relieve the stresses and strains placed throughout the body during pregnancy, labour and delivery.
