Coping with the Postural Demands of Pregnancy

Many women experience back pain during pregnancy and may also experience one or more of the following symptoms:

Glossop Osteopathy Clinic adopts a gentle  approach .to treatment to help the body adapt to new postural demands of pregnancy more easily.  We can also advise on gentle Pilates exercises to perform throughout pregnancy to help keep the body balanced.





Preparation for birth

If a woman’s spine and pelvis are mobile and all relevant muscles relaxed, then the birth process can be better facilitated. Treatment aims to prepare the body for the labour process.

Post-natal care

Postnatal treatment is recommended to help the body return to the pre-pregnant state, treat any residual trauma from the birth and avoid possible and unnecessary complications in later pregnancies.

Postnatal problems such as headaches, coccyx pain and pelvic pains generally respond very well to osteopathic treatment.

Children’s Clinic

Being born can be a stressful process for both mother and baby.  When all goes well the baby’s body is well adapted to accommodate .the stresses and forces during normal labour. After birth, breathing, crying and suckling all help the baby in their early development.

However, in cases where the forces during labour were particularly strong, (because of either a long labour or the use of forceps or ventouse), strains and tensions in the new born may manifest as difficulties latching or preferring one posture.

Osteopathic treatment can help the baby to resolve any strains that have not resolved in early development and therefore help the baby to settle and feed more easily.

At Glossop Osteopathy Clinic we use a variety of gentle techniques such as cranial osteopathy and everything is fully explained throughout the examination and treatment process.
