Most pregnant women will experience back pain during their pregnancy and this is considered normal.
But it is not because you are pregnant that you should suffer with back pain. With pregnancy limiting the use of pain killers the women’s options are not many. Osteopathy is a safe and efficient therapy for prenatal women. Our osteopaths at Islington are experienced and can provide great relief for your pregnancy aches and pains.
Each phase of your pregnancy will present different changes and challenges and our specialised knowledge allows us to follow your pregnancy and provide relevant care.
Treatment during your first trimester is possible but will be conservative at is it a crucial time of development. It is a time where your body will feel tired due to the hormonal changes. Cramping and back ache can occur but this is normal.
In your second trimester, you are finally adapting to your new hormonal cocktail. You feel more energised but now the bump may start to show and mechanical shifts and pulls may start to arise. We can help you adapt to your changes more smoothly release tensions that might appear and give you relevant stretches and exercises.
In your final trimester, the baby grow almost at double speed therefore you weight is changing more drastically. This can put a strain on your body but also your vascular system. Our osteopathic treatments during the 3rd trimester can help promote blood flow, deep breathing, relieve postural strains and prepare you for birth.
We are able to diagnose the cause of your symptoms whether it be ligament pain, Pelvic girdle pain, mechanical back pain, sciatica, coccyx pain and carpal tunnel or others and treat accordingly.

Went twice to see Sophia Ermogenous for back pain. Sophia has a nice touch and explains what she is doing. Wonderful results few days after with the exercises she sent me to practice at home. Highly recommended. Michael Cable
