Pregnancy should be an exciting time, full of expectation.
Whilst some areas of pregnancy can’t be easily eased, e.g. morning sickness or frequent bathroom calls, musculoskeletal complaints during pregnancy can be treated.
Lower Back and Sacroiliac Pain is just one of the many areas that can produce strain when the body tries to adapt to the changing shape and weight. Rib and pelvic pain are frequently experienced.
Sometimes the body can’t adapt so well during the final months of pregnancy and an extra pelvic support may be needed in the form of a Belt. Colleen Kent has trained with well- known Sydney Physiotherapist Francine St George to assess whether a belt is needed or what belt might suit.

So why not do something about the presentations that can be worked on and visit Colleen Kent for some Osteopathic care. As a Mother of two herself, she can relate to what you are going through.
As a mother of two understanding the difficulties of pregnancy has become a particular interest of Colleen’s. Even during pregnancy the mother can be treated because of the nature of the treatment. Cranial Osteopathy can help ease some of the physical discomforts that often accompany pregnancy and can be helpful. Treatment may help after the birth in assisting Mother and Baby.
The birth itself can be difficult and long, especially if forceps or vacuum extraction were needed. Even Caesarian section can be difficult if there was a prolonged period of labour beforehand.
The following are the most common, but it is by no means an exhaustive list.
- Other aches and pains.
- Sports Injuries.
