Pregnancy is a time where women need to take the utmost care of themselves. With so many changes occuring within the body including shifting centre of gravity, hormone fluctuations and weight distribution, it is understandable that the body can feel strained. This most commonly presents as back pain, pelvic pain, sciatica, indigestion, swelling and headaches.
Osteopathy is a gentle form of treatment that focuses on maintaining balance and alignment within the body during pregnancy. If the tissues have the health and flexibility to adapt to these changes it lessens the likelihhood of pain and discomfort during your pregnancy and, most importantly, places the mother in the best possible position for the rigours of labour. Osteopathy can help with both pre-natal and post-natal care.
At Quay Osteo we provide excellent care for expecting-mum's in the Torquay and Surfcoast area. We understand that it is such an exciting time and will do everything we can to make you feel great throughout your pregnancy. We have undertaken ongoing learning in biodynamic craniosacral osteopathy so that we have a variety of treatment options available to pregnant women.
We even have a specially designed Preggie Pillow that will allow you to lay face down without placing any pressure on bub, which allows you to fully relax while we use massage, stretching and mobilisation to have you moving comfortably.
