Effective treatment of pregnancy-related pain

Do you have pain in your pregnancy?

Many pregnant women experience pregnancy-related pain that can vary in intensity and location. Someone experiences pain in the lower back, back or abdominal muscles as the abdomen grows outward and the muscle balance changes. Others experience pain from the pelvis, SI joints (at the back of the pelvis at the tailbone) or the pubic bone in front as the load in the pelvis increases. It can also be pain in the inner thighs or in the buttocks, as well as pressure on the sciatic nerve that gives sciatica pain.

Get rid of pain in your pregnancy

I treat the nervous system as pain is a response to a compensation somewhere else in the body. The brain processes the impression of the nervous system and responds to it. As your body's center of gravity changes during the pregnancy, your brain may not be able to compensate anymore and you will be in pain. 

Through muscle testing, I find the cause in your nervous system and treat it gently and effectively .There is no crack or twist associated with the treatment and you will typically feel the effect after the first treatment.

I remove the cause of your pregnancy-related pain - quickly and effectively.

What Are Pregnancyrelated pelvic girdle pain (PGP)?

Pregnancy-related pelvic pain - known as pelvic instability,is a bit of a trash diagnosis. Everyone tries something different and has different beliefs, but there is no medical explanation for the cause.

Maybe you've had a problem before. You may have had pain during a sport or while working out, but do not link these pain with your current pain. It may also be the reason why it is difficult to find a link between pain and pregnancy. All women have experienced various injuries and malformations prior to their pregnancy and will naturally respond differently to a pregnancy and possibly pain associated with pregnancy. That is why it is important that you read Preparations for the first treatment.

You and your nervous system

When we experience pain, it is information (input from receptors in the nervous system) from the area that is interpreted by the brain as pain. Your nervous system is overreacting and trying to protect the area by tightening up the muscles. Imagine a lamp that can be turned on and off, if it is on and the cord of the lamp breaks, the lamp will always light up. Likewise, your nervous system can send too many signals and thereby be on / overactive. I therefore process the information that the brain receives so that the muscles can relax and you are no longer in pain. 

I am in pain and is pregnant

You can have pain in many places in the body and they can move around during pregnancy. It is often pelvic pain, in the form of pain from the pubic bone (symphysis) or the back of the tailbone (SI joints). It may also be from the lower back, back or abdominal muscles. As the abdomen grows forward, the lower back sway becomes larger and it affects the structures in the back. The abdominal muscles are stretched and this can also be felt. If the baby kicks / stretches the arms and hits the sciatic nerve, pain may also occur locally in the bald or radiating to the leg, making it almost feel as if the leg is giving up. Therefore, "pregnant" and "pelvic pain" are often related and many experience pelvic pain during pregnancy.
