Postural changes in pregnancy
How the spine is affected
The osteopath, through gentle manipulation of the joints and stretching of the muscles and other soft tissues, eases discomfort and pain. Pregnant women are often the patients who respond the best to osteopathic treatment and it is safe to see the osteopath throughout pregnancy. With advice on posture, sleeping and moving osteopathic care is often best placed to relieve symptoms at a time when taking medication is not as it would be in the non-pregnant patient.
