How osteopathy can help during pregnancy
Osteopathy specialises in identifying and treating mechanical dysfunctions within the body resulting from stress and postural imbalances.
Lower back and pelvic pain is very common during pregnancy due to changes in spinal curves and increased ligamentous laxity as the foetus grows. This weakens the abdominal muscles and puts a lot of strain on your lower back and pelvis.
Pain radiation and tingling can also be experienced in the buttocks and thighs which may indicate irritation of the nerves originating from the lumbar spine.
