Our osteopath in London is specialised in pregnant women’s conditions such as back pain and neck pain during pregnancy
Most adults will suffer from neck pain or back pain at some point in their lives. Pregnant women experience back pain, neck pain or pain in the sciatic nerve due to the changes in their back curves during pregnancy and the weight of the baby. Overweight women and women who had back pain issues in the past are more likely to experience back pain during the pregnancy.
Osteopathy can offer relieve from such pains, aches or tensions, by providing maximum mobility while releasing the different muscular, ligament or articular tensions in the body. Our osteopath has years of experience working with pregnant women that experience these issues, in order to relieve them of the pain and help them enjoy their pregnancy more.

How can Osteopathy help me for neck pain, back pain or sciatica?
During pregnancy, osteopathy can help alleviate the pain and discomfort you may feel, especially in the later terms. The treatment will help you not only during the pregnancy, but you will also feel the benefits longer term.
Osteopathy will release the general tensions of the body and restore balance by working holistically. The methods that are used are efficient and safe both for you and your baby.
Osteopathic treatment will also prepare your body for labour by aligning your lower back and pelvis in the best possible way for the baby to go through the birth canal with the least possible restrictions,
Why do I have neck pain, back pain or sciatica?
Pregnancy leads to a modification of the back curves:
- Upper back / cervical curve
- Middle back / dorsal curve
- Lower back / lumbar curve
In fact, the curve modification will sync with the modification of the pelvic posture caused by the baby. This modification can sometimes cause pain at the back, neck or pain such as sciatica.
There are some aggravating factors than can worsen the pain:
- Previous history of chronic back pain
- Exaggerated back curves (lumbar hyperlordosis)
- Anxiety/ stress
- Previous trauma on the back
- Multiple pregnancies
