Preventing Knee & Leg Pain During Pregnancy


There are a number of changes that women go through during the different stages of pregnancy. The changes in both your posture as well as weight can lead to several issues including aches and pains in many parts of the body; lower back, pelvis, shoulders and neck, and all the way down to your lower extremities. This is especially true if an injury occurred previously.


If you’re experiencing leg or knee pain during pregnancy, the team here at Orchard Clinic is proudly here to provide assistance through osteopathic treatment. We know it can be an emotional and stressful time of your life, and we’re here to alleviate as much pains as we can through professional techniques performed by qualified podiatrists.


How osteopathic treatment can assist with pregnancy pain in the knees and legs

There are a number of different issues this particular type of treatment can help with including:

  • Vomiting and feelings of nausea
  • Indigestion and heartburn
  • Hip, shoulder, back and neck aches
  • Difficulties with breathing
  • Discomfort and/or pain in the hip and pelvis region (known as Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction or SPD)
  • Treating haemorrhoids as well as varicose veins
  • Pain in the wrists and/or legs and knees

In addition, the osteopath here at the Orchard Clinic is able to use stretches, breathing techniques, exercises and a gentle manipulation in order to restore balance in the back and pelvis so you’re prepared well for delivery of your baby.


Assisting with pain during your pregnancy plus offering postnatal care

As well as offering a comprehensive treatment plan to treat back, pelvic, leg and knee pain during the pregnancy, we also provide help after labour. It can be a traumatic experience for both mum and baby because of the high amount of strain while delivering. Sometimes, epidurals may cause spinal weakness.


This can result in problems with the back and pelvis, issues with menstruation, cause headaches and also lead to incontinence from stress. Come to the Orchard Clinic and our osteopath will work with you to relieve all of the strains you experienced while you were pregnant and during labour.
