The gift of pregnancy will often produce physical changes which can lead to enormous changes in skeletal structure during a relatively short period. Physical changes shown in the video below highlight the importance of maintaining great care during this time and this can be achieved by consulting with one of our practitioners at Fisher Demirov Osteopaths, Ringwood.
Osteopathic treatment while pregnant can help reduce some common symptoms. These may include:
- Rib pain
- Lower back pain and sciatica.
- Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain
- Groin (inguinal) and pubic symphysis region pain
- Muscle tension
Treatment will vary between patients and how far along you are. We often treat pregnant patients with a variety of technics including soft tissue massage, gentle articulation, fascial release and joint manipulation where indicated. All our Osteopaths have a high degree of experience treating pregnant patients and will suggest the best possible plan to allow you to be most comfortable during this special time.
