Pre & Post Pregnancy Osteopathic Services in Brisbane

During pregnancy your body undergoes postural and weight changes in a relatively short period of time. Whilst this is normal and necessary, for some people, this can cause a lot of discomfort. Imbalance along the spine and changes in muscle activity may lead to increased strain along the spine as you little one grows. This can increase the risk of joint pain.

Osteopathic treatment can be excellent and gentle way to help prepare the body as well as dealing with any possible musculoskeletal complaints that may arise.
