Treating Pelvic Pain During Pregnancy With Osteopathy
Pregnancy induced pelvic pain can begin as early as the first trimester all the way through to the birth of a baby.
Pelvic pain can be related to a disorder known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction.
Pregnancy produces a hormone called Relaxin, this hormone softens the ligaments in the Symphysis Pubis – the rigid joint which connects the two halves of the pelvis in order to prepare the body for giving birth.
As the pelvis becomes more flexible the joints begin to move more freely which can cause pain and inflammation.
The good news is that Osteopathic treatment can help right through the pre and postnatal period promoting stability and pain relief within the hips, pelvis and spine.
