Osteopathy in Pregnancy

Osteopathy in Pregnancy

Throughout pregnancy, your posture and mechanics change to adapt to your developing baby. Your ligaments soften, the curves in your spine (especially through your lower back) become exaggerated and your centre of gravity moves forwards. All these adaptations put extra pressure on the joints, muscles and ligaments in your spine and pelvis and can cause discomfort or pain. Osteopathic treatment supports the body through these changes, especially during the mid to final stages of the pregnancy.

Osteopathic techniques used during pregnancy are gentle and non-invasive, they are safe for both the mother and the baby.

Osteopathy For New Mums

Following the birth of your baby, it is not unusual to experience aches and pains caused by the mechanic stress of labour as well as the new physical activities that caring for a newborn entails such as carrying them, their car capsules and prams, holding them in their feeding position and bending to change your baby.

Osteopathic treatment can get you out of pain and help your body cope. Alongside gentle treatment, you will also be advised on strengthening exercises, improving your posture as well as your positioning during the aforementioned activities to reduce stress on your body.

Osteopathy For Pregnancy Reviews

During my pregnancy, I was increasingly experiencing more and more discomfort as well as general back pain. I was recommended Bansel Osteopathy by a friend and it exceeded my expectations. I had several sessions of various treatments which massively reduced my pain as well as increasing my mobility and ensured I stayed aligned through the latter stages of my pregnancy. I am now a week away from my due date and feel confident and strong in my own body. Jasi is a very friendly, caring and professional Osteopath and always explained what was happening and how it would help me. I was given extra stretches and advice to do in my own time and I always felt safe with my treatments. I would highly recommend Bansel Osteopathy to anyone especially those who are pregnant.

During my pregnancy I developed lower back pain and was in need of some treatment to help relieve this. Jasi was very reassuring and her treatment helped reduce my pain considerably. She always made sure I felt comfortable with what she was doing and explained things very clearly. She also gave me useful exercises to do at home which I found really beneficial. I would highly recommend Jasi to anyone who is experiencing pregnancy related joint pain.

    What Our Clients Say......

    I originally went to Jasi, on recommendation from a friend, because I was in pain in my lower back, neck and shoulders. Jasi was able to assess immediately what my problem was. Her treatment eased the pain and made me mobile, this often included cranial osteopathy, which I have found to be excellent in coping with tensions caused by stress etc… Jasi has also given me nutritional advice which has helped my skin and health. My wife and son also see her for treatments and I would very happily recommend Jasi to others.

    Charlie

    I have been going to see Jas for the last 12 years. I was a professional motocrosser until I retired 3 years ago. Every year I was in the top 10 in Great Britain. During that time I sustained various injuries. Jas managed to keep me racing every week. I had various operations, and she was able to get me up and running again as quickly as possible. I now go to her for regular maintenance and would recommend her to anyone.

    Jody

    I started seeing Jasi in the summer of 2011. I had been extremely ill for a year and no one could give me any answers. Within 15 minutes of kinesiology work, Jasi had sussed what was wrong and put me on a special diet and told me that I needed to take certain supplements. I cannot recommend anyone more highly, within 1 month, my chronic fatigue amongst other problems were finally going and I now go for regular check ups so Jasi can keep my health and well-being on track. Kinesiology is a very powerful healing method and Jasi is the one to go for it!

    Georgie

    I would thoroughly recommend going to see Jasi (and I already have to many people). She has treated me as an osteopath when I was pregnant and had back pain from an injury, she treated my son when he was very small following a difficult birth (and although he couldn’t speak he was clearly comfortable with her – she is great with kids!). More recently she has been treating me as a kinesiologist for a number of things that conventional medicine can’t do. Jasi is obviously highly skilled and very responsive, and her lovely manner puts people at ease. An excellent practitioner in every way!

    Kate

    Jasi has a holistic approach and gives great advice on matters such as diet and lifestyle to help improve ailments and conditions for babies, children and adults. I have recommended Jasi to friends and family who have been really pleased with results they have had from her services. We talk about her ‘magic hands!’. Jasi has a lovely manner with babies and children, she is calm and confident – would thoroughly recommend her to any parent.’.

    Sharon

    I recently went to Bansel Osteopathy for a back condition that I have had for a number of years. I saw one of the practitioners who asked me lots of questions about the problems I have had with my back. After only two sessions of treatment the discomfort I had gone away and with the exercises, she gave me the back is now very supple and giving me no more problems. I would thoroughly recommend Bansel Osteopathy for all your osteopathic needs!

    Jan

    Last June I fractured my shoulder on holiday. After the fracture had healed I had physio exercises to try to get my arm movement back. The hospital told me that I was not likely to get full movement back. Three months on I decided to see Megan as recommended by my husband. Megan started my treatment in September my last appointment was January 2019. I now have full front and side movement. I can also put my arm behind my back and gradually I am able to lift it higher. I am so pleased with the result, thanks, Megan!

    Vicki

    I can thoroughly recommend Bansel Osteopathy. Over the last 7 years both my children and I have received superb treatment. As babies both my children both saw Jasi for Cranial Osteopathy which resolved their issues. Most recently I’ve been receiving treatment from Anjy Chahal for over a year now, for lower back pain, neck and tension issues. I cannot recommend Anjy highly enough, her treatment has been really effective helping me. She is always friendly and I can trust her 100%. Anjy has given me some great advise of exercises and suggestions to ease the discomfort. Anjy is extremely professional, and is highly trained Osteopath.

    Di

    Following a difficult birth, Jasi treated my six week old son with cranial osteopathy and helped to relieve his colic, transforming a very difficult first baby into a manageable one. So as a matter of course, I took my second child who had her own set of problems following a caesarean birth to Jasi for treatment, and she straightened those out too. Jasi has also treated my husband, who after years of heavy physical work and motorcar racing as a hobby suffered bad migraines and a painful back. After the initial intensive treatment course, he now goes for maintenance and is problem-free. Jasi has also treated him for his sleeplessness and tiredness through kinesiology and has also helped me get rid of my candida. All in all, Jasi has helped every member of my family through her vast knowledge and technical understanding of the human body and how to manipulate it.

    Donna

    Jasi has been successfully managing my complex heath issues for a number of years. Her exceptional skills as an osteopath and kinesiologist has enabled me to lead a normal active life. I must also recommend the excellent osteopathic treatments I have had from her colleagues Megan and Kayleigh. They are both highly skilled and understand my complex health issues, ensuring treatments are very effective. I cannot thank the whole team enough for the continuity of care they give me.

    Simon

    I would just like to say that during these times of crisis Jasi has not let me down. I suffer quite a lot with my joints and back and end up in excruciating pain. Since we have all been on lockdown Jasi has been amazing as usual by putting her clients first and does video calls to make sure they are all ok. She has given me a list of exercises and pressure points to do and I couldn’t be more grateful.

    Thank you Jasi you are exceptional and the best I would never go anywhere else.

    Online Consultation Review

    Thank you Jasi for coming to the rescue with your excellent one to one online consultations, using your extensive knowledge and experience to develop my own personal treatment plan. This has allowed me to continue to manage and improve my complex condition, now hands-on osteopathy is not possible due to social distancing.
    Once again a big thank you for all your help.
