Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Homeopaths, Hypnotherapy


Whether you're looking for some extra help during pregnancy, or some alternative health practitioners during pregnancy or for information on health of your young family, then check out what these people have to offer.  If you are suffering physically during pregnancy, then your gp can refer you for physio and you may be given a support belt.  Other options are also available locally.  Some physical therapists may also specialize in working with scar tissue, which could be helpful later on if you had a c-section.  Everyone listed below works with ladies to help with symptoms that are caused by pregnancy.

PGP (Pelvic Girdle Pain) is a common condition which affects up to one in five pregnant women. In the past PGP was known as SPD, but this implied it was only the symphysis pubis that was affected, which is not usually the case. In practice, the sacroiliac joints are usually affected as well, and pain can be felt around the base of the spine, groin, hips, buttocks and thighs.

"I remain very enthusiastic about the positive difference that Physiotherapy can make to antenatal and postnatal women experiencing the pain and frustration associated with impaired mobility and disturbed sleep. In my experience, ‘hands-on’ manual therapy involving soft tissue release and joint mobilisations, in conjunction with advice on activity modification, posture and the introduction of a home exercise programme, does in most cases, effectively treat PGP. My goal for patients is always to promote independence and provide lots of self-help strategies. 2-3 sessions if often enough." Clare Kay Shuttleworth (Versatile Clinic, Carnforth)

The Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists have published useful information for patients, as have the pelvic partnership: www.pelvicpartnership.org.uk and the Pelvic, Obstetric and Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP).

 


Wellbeing therapies with Patricia Spence
CranioSacral Therapy – the gentle way to release physical and emotional stress and trauma creating
balance and harmony.
It is gentle and safe for new born babies, children, pregnant women and the elderly, yet strong
enough for active persons. Over the years I have developed experience treating tongue tie, suckling,
colic, erbs palsy, and premature babies as well as migraines, headaches, back and neck pain, stress,
anxiety and tension, whiplash, sprains and post operative trauma such as surgery, falls, accidents,
emotional stresses and the birth process itself. These patterns become imprinted or locked into
tissue at many levels i.e. body tissue, membranes, nerves and the central nervous system or energy
systems.
I have experience in helping clients discover and explore those patterns that usually underlie their
symptoms. The therapeutic modalities I also use are massage, Reiki. I have over 20 years of
accumulated knowledge and experience.

•I brought my daughter to you when she was born as she had a compressed spine and colic.
The work you did was amazing.
 ~Jem
•Warm, friendly and professional. She put my son at ease and talked to him with respect
explaining everything she did and encouraging him to ask questions. ~Jen
