Pregnancy Related Conditions

Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy and postnatal

Osteopathic treatment is tailored to be safe and suitable for the physical changes that occur during pregnancy.

Stages of pregnancy

Due to the weight you gain while pregnant – the equivalent of carrying 12 bags of sugar in a normal pregnancy – women often find they have pelvic, lower back, upper back or neck pain.

Pregnancy related conditions - The Backbone Osteopathic Practice


At The Backbone, we work not only to ease your discomfort but also to address joint restriction and muscle weakness.

We can often manage or reduce some of the pains associated with your pregnancy by:

  • Correcting your spinal alignment

And keeping important muscles and joints loose, by using gentle and non-invasive:

  • Soft-tissue massage
  • Stretching
  • Joint articulation.

The Backbone team can also:

  • Advise you on exercises, and what is safe and unsafe to do
  • Provide that extra support you need to make your pregnancy as enjoyable as we believe it should be
  • Help new mums manage the increased physical strain of lifting and carrying their precious new bundle.
