During pregnancy the body undergoes many physiological and physical changes.
It is a time when muscles and ligaments soften. Hormonal changes (the action of relaxin and oestrogen) increase fluid uptake in collagen fibres, making the spine and pelvis more flexible. Often, these changes may cause discomfort and pain. As back pain is present in 75% of pregnancies it is almost considered normal. However, your pregnancy should be as pain free as possible.
Osteopathy is a safe and effective treatment that can help relieve those aches and pains when medication use is limited. It can also prepare the body for birth by balancing and re-aligning your body to better cope with the increasing load and strain on the joints and pelvis.
As your body changes we will advise you on dos and don’ts and how to adapt to these changes such as exercise, stretches, sleeping positions, work posture, circulation…Each phase of your pregnancy has different needs.

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
