Pregnancy is a very special time for an expectant mother. During pregnancy, your body undergoes major changes and in order to adapt to these, a hormone called relaxing is released.
Relaxin allows the ligaments throughout your body to soften and stretch, helping your body adapt as your baby grows inside you. Some women have difficulty adapting to these changes, causing undue strain on the spine, neck and shoulders, which can be uncomfortable and even painful.
We use gentle hands-on manipulation techniques for the treatment of musculoskeletal issues that help to decrease muscle tension and improve your range of motion during pregnancy. This ultimately helps release any restrictions to help you restore your natural state of balance, alignment, and body functions.
The pregnant women we see in our OsteoLife practice come from area of Elizabeth Bay, Darlinghurst and surrounding suburbs.
