Osteopathy can be wonderfully effective in relieving pain and discomfort during pregnancy and in the recovery period.  Perhaps the most common presentation of pain we see is symphysis pubis pain, which is related to something called SPD.What is SPD?Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD) is the term used to describe pain that is experienced in the back, front and sides of your pelvis during pregnancy.
SPD is common and I treat many pregnant women at the clinic for this. The sooner it can be identified and assessed, the better it can be managed, helping to reduce the impact of SPD on your life.

Below are some of the signs and symptoms you may experience during or after your pregnancy. •Difficulty in walking
•Pain during normal day-to-day activities
•Clicking and grinding in pelvic area
•Pain and/or difficulty moving your legs apart (getting in and out of the car)
•Difficulty lying in certain positions (side lying)
•Pain when weight-bearing on one leg  (putting your trousers on, getting out of the bath tub, walking up and down stairs)
•Limited movement with/without pain during hip movements (turning in bed)
•Pain during sexual intercourseAs you can see there is a wide range of symptoms and for some women the pain and discomfort is far more debilitating that for others. If SPD is diagnosed and managed correctly in the early stages, then it is possible for the symptoms to completely resolve. In a small number of cases, however, the symptoms may persist after the birth of your child. These cases are particularly common in women if left untreated.To make an appointment for Osteopathy with me, Vanessa Fisher, call 9938 1090 or book online by clicking here.
