Pelvic problems following child-birth

Joanne has fortnightly treatment as a preventative measure, to keep her body mobile enough to carry out her work and hobbies.

I started seeing Karen after the birth of my daughter 4 years ago in 2011.

I was suffering with headaches and lower back pain following a complicated delivery, Karen discovered that my pelvis was very twisted, probably from having had my legs placed in stirrups during the birthing process.

With gentle manipulation, my pelvis has returned to normal and I was able to continue my hobby of belly-dancing. As I am a complementary and beauty therapist as well as a mother, my hands, shoulders and back take a lot of punishment, from the continual bending and massaging of others.

I now see Karen on a fortnightly basis to keep me healthy and mobile as a preventative measure. With Karen’s help I am able to live an active life and have relatively little pain.

Having spent the last few years searching for some relief from my back pain, I was pleasantly surprised by finding Balance-Rite Osteopathy Clinic. Karen was extremely welcoming and friendly and put me at ease straight away. I was in acute pain initially and from my first visit felt immediate relief. Subsequent follow-up sessions identified a number of causes of the symptoms I was suffering from and we are now working on pain management and possible long-term remedies.

The whole environment is very relaxing and calming rather than very clinical like others I have visited. Karen treats me holistically which, personally, I think has been so much help. I would not hesitate to recommend Balance-Rite Osteopathy Clinic to anyone. Continue reading for Amanda’s husband, Dallas’s testimonial. Continue reading
