Pregnancy & Postpartum – Sciatic Nerve Pain

You do not need to live with the back, pelvic, hip, rib, and sciatic nerve pain that often arise during pregnancy. A natural approach of manual therapy, exercise and body movement awareness can frequently resolve your problems. After birth, a number of problems can arise in the pelvic bowl and/or abdomen. There can be various prolapses accompanied by a feeling of “falling out” or leakage; vaginal/rectal pain from long labor, tearing, or scarring; and weak abdominal/low back pain from a separation of the abdominal muscles (diastasis recti).Another common issue for new mothers have to deal with is sciatic nerve pain. Sciatic nerve pain and general lower back pain have long been associated with pregnancy, but some women experience an escalation of symptoms after birth.We use a variety of manual therapy, exercise, and posture techniques to help alleviate these discomforts so you can care for your baby and enjoy an intimate relationship with your partner.
