Pregnancy and Postnatal Treatment

Helping to solve your pregnancy and postnatal pain

Are you experiencing aching hips or pain and stiffness in your lower back and shoulders, the bigger your bump grows?

During pregnancy, hormonal changes in your body cause the ligaments around your pelvis and back to relax, and your joints to loosen in preparation for your baby’s arrival. Couple that with the added weight of an ever-growing bump, and your lower back and pelvis begin to feel the pressure and strain; leading to pain and a feeling of instability, which can make simple daily activities such as getting out of the car, bending down, turning over in bed or even sitting feel uncomfortable.

While discomfort and pain are common in pregnancy, it shouldn’t be ignored. These issues can have a major effect on simple daily activities and may persist long after birth. Many mums-to-be dismiss their aches and pains as part of the natural pregnancy process and carry on, when getting the right treatment could make all the difference to their quality of life during and after pregnancy. At The Injury Clinic Market Harborough we use safe and natural therapeutic techniques derived from osteopathy, physiotherapy and midwifery to relieve pregnancy-related pain, supporting you through every stage of your journey to motherhood.

As a new mum, you’ll need your body to cope with the demands of changing and feeding your baby, lifting and carrying a car seat and lugging around a heavy changing bag. These activities require a strong back, pelvis and abdominal muscles. At The Injury Clinic Market Harborough we offer a comprehensive postnatal exercise service designed to ease you back in gently and help you regain your full strength and mobility. We focus on exercises that target your pelvic floor and core muscles, giving you the support to recover quickly and protect against future aches and pains.

We’ve helped many mums-to-be in Market Harborough to have a more comfortable pregnancy and ease their aches and pains. We’ve also supported lots of new mums with recovery through a combination of exercise and therapy treatments.

Whatever your pain, we’re here to help.

If you’ve had persistent back, hip or pelvis pain for longer than six weeks, then it’s advisable to seek professional treatment. Book an appointment with one of our practitioners.
