Mother & Baby Osteopathy

Do You Suffer With Back Pain?

If You Do Watch Our Video Now!

Mother and Baby Osteopathy At Spineplus Clinic Woodford  we understand that Pregnancy is time of great change for the body, not only does a mum to be carry the extra weight of the baby on her frame but the spine goes through various posture changes over the different semesters as a result of an expanding tummy! This can place strain on joints, muscles and discs, commonly resulting in back pain, neck pain and shoulder aches. Furthermore, during the later stages of pregnancy, the body produces hormones which help prepare for delivery of the baby by increasing the flexibility of the ligaments around the pelvis, the unfortunate downside to this is that the pelvic joints, commonly the scare-iliac joint, can drift slightly out of alignment (sub lux) causing sharp pain on one side of the low back / hip especially when putting weight through the leg of the affected side. 

Unfortunately, pregnancy related back pain does not necessarily end once the baby has been delivered! The fact that the abdomen has been stretched for many months often wreaks havoc on the deep abdominal and core stability muscles of the trunk which have normally play a crucial supporting role for the spine. Overstretched, under working core muscles is not a good thing! This can potentially predispose to back problems such as slipped discs and sciatica months or years down the line.

The good news is that at Spineplus Woodford we can help with our 1 to 1 Mother and Baby Osteopathy Clinic, this helps especially with early rehabilitation and specific Pilates style exercises within a month or so after delivery core muscles can be coaxed back into action.  Several of our osteopaths are trained Pilates instructors, so if you feel like your tummy needs toning why not book in for someone to one sessions, so the you can nail the require exercises and make sure you are doing them correctly. Not only should this give you a flatter tummy but can also help improve and prevent back pain.

The birthing process can be quite traumatic not just for the mum but also for the delicate bone and soft tissues of a new-born baby, particularly if the delivery was a difficult that involved the use of forceps or ventouse. This can mean an unsettling time during the first few weeks and months of a new-born’s life which has been linked to colic, difficulty settling at night time and other disorders. Cranial osteopathy involves very gentle manipulation of the skull bones and soft tissues and has traditionally been used with babies to help settle the effects of birth trauma, and at our Mother and Baby Osteopathy clinic at SpinePlus Clinic Woodford we can help mother and baby with advice, exercises and treatments .  

At Spineplus Clinic Woodford we have an osteopath who is very experienced with using “cranial osteopathy” – Noel Adams, Noel is also a dad of two, so has been there done that and got the T shirt. So if you think you or your baby could benefit from Noel’s expertise, why not book in, it’s not uncommon for mother and baby to have their first full night’s sleep after Noel’s gentle and relaxing treatment!
