Pregnancy Pains

BACK AND OTHER PAINS BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER PREGNANCY

BEFORE PREGNANCY IT IS ADVISABLE TO HAVE THE SPINAL, PELVIC, HIP & ANKLE JOINTS CHECKED AND BALANCED. THIS CAN GREATLY REDUCE THE QUANTITY AND LIKELIHOOD OF SUFFERING FROM JOINT RELATED AND PHYSICAL PRESSURE DURING AND AFTER THE PREGNANCY. THIS IS PARTICULARLY IMPORTANT FOR LADIES WHO HAVE ANY HISTORY OF BACK PROBLEMS.

PREGNANCY CAN MEAN HAVING TO COPE WITH A WHOLE RANGE OF SYMTOMS INCLUDING LOW BACK PAIN AS THE BABY GROWS IN THE WOMB, EXTRA WEIGHT AND CHANGED CENTRE OF GRAVITY CAN MEAN PREGNANT WOMEN ARE MORE LIKELY TO SUFFER FROM LOWER BACK PAIN. SIMILARLY, AS BREAST WEIGHT INCREASES, A WOMEN’S UPPER BACK MAY ALSO GIVE HER CAUSE FOR COMPLAINT.  TREATMENT CAN HELP THE BODY TO ADJUST TO INCREASING WEIGHT AND CHANGING POSTURE TO CUT THE PAIN AND DISABLEMENT OF CHANGES DURING PREGNANCY.

MORNING SICKNESS CAN BE HELPED BY TREATING SOFT TISSUES SURROUNDING THE DIGESTIVE SYSTEM TO RELAX THEM.

OUR PRACTITIONERS CAN ALSO WORK ON THE LESS WELL-KNOWN ‘SIDE EFFECTS’ OF PREGNANCY LIKE HEARTBURN AND CONSTIPATION, AND HELP TO ALLEVIATE PAIN CAUSED BY VARICOSE VEINS. THE SAFE AND EFFECTIVE TREATMENT OF PREGNANT PATIENTS FORMS PART OF.

GENTLE TECHNIQUES WILL BE USED FOR RELAXATION AND STRETCHING OF MUSCLES, EASING OVERSTRETCHED TISSUES, RELIEVING PAINFUL AREAS, RELEASING PAINFUL JOINTS AND LIGAMENTS, TRACTION/DISTRACTION TECHNIQUES TO LIFT THE BABY’S WEIGHT TO RELIEVE THE WEIGHT PRESSURE ON JOINTS AND INTERNALS. THE TREATMENT MAY BE REINFORCED BY PRESCRIBING GENTLE EXERCISES.

THE HORMONAL CHANGES WHICH OCCUR DURING PREGNANCY CAN CAUSE FEET TO SPREAD AND FLATTEN. OUR PRACTITIONER CAN TREAT THIS PROBLEM AND DRAW UP SIMPLE EXERCISES TO EASE DISCOMFORT CAUSED BY THIS.

AFTER THE BIRTH THE MOTHER AND BABY SHOULD RETURN FOR A POST-NATAL CHECK-UP.
