Are you suffering from pins & needles? Electric shocks down the back of your leg? ⚡️
In the 3rd trimester the neck's spinal curve can increase + shoulders round forwards. This can strain the Ulnar + Median nerves creating pins & needles in the hands + forearms. Also the weight of your belly pulls the pelvis forwards & a variety of nerves can become strained & cause a range of neural symptoms. Osteopathic treatment is aimed at relieving any tension on the nerves, increasing blood flow and improving any joint restrictions. Tailored advice is given, with stretches, exercises, compression bandages where appropriate.

Want to know how to get the most out of your work day? 👇
Prioritise selfcare, its that simple. It doesn't have to take long, but micro breaks throughout the day (see my previous post), eating + drinking, get outside for fresh air at lunch time for 5-10minutes, don't over fill your day, schedule in diaphragmatic/belly breathing. Think of the selfcare things apply to you & help restore your calm, not over worked state. If we are too busy, dehydrated, breathing solely with our upper chest and so on, we are not going to be performing at our peak. Mistakes will be made, deadlines wont be met and so on. A few minutes here and there throughout your day will help you stay focused, calm & achieve your workload #selfcare #kpis #microbreaks #prioritizeyourself #osteopath #aucklandosteopath #northshoreosteopath #milfordosteopath #workingprofessionals #corporate #occupationalosteopath #corporateosteopath

Ever noticed how your posture changes as you progress through pregnancy? 🤰
Throughout pregnancy there are normal changes in posture due to hormonal changes effecting ligaments, flattening of the lower back spinal curve + increased curve of the cervical spine/neck, increased breast + uterus weight, change on your center of gravity (forwards + upwards), shoulders rounded forwards & women leans backwards to counterbalance the change in weight. Pregnant women can develop a 'waddle-like' 🐥gait/walking pattern which in turn can cause lower back pain. Sarah specialises in treating pregnant women to aide the body through this transition, making women as comfortable as possible.

What is Sarah's number top tip when working from your desk....👇
The one piece of advice that can't be stressed enough..take regular breaks! How often do you get up and move? By standing up every 20min for a few seconds you reset your posture, pump blood around and aid lymphatic drainage. Every hour do a short walk to the kitchen, printer, reception etc If working from home quickly put on a load of washing, empty the dishwasher etc. These breaks are so beneficial to get your body moving, giving your brain a rest and taking your eyes away from your screen. By having a break, you will actually increase your productivity. If you push through and only stop every 3/4hours your quality of work and concentration, typically drops. This applies to meetings to. It is beneficial you all stop and stand up and take a micro break. Let me know how frequent you take breaks! #breaks #microbreak #brainhealth #movement #rest #selfcare #workingprofessionals #corporate #occupationalosteopath #osteopath #aucklandosteopath #northshoreosteopath #milfordosteopath

Someone kicking you from the inside out? 🤰
A very common complaint during pregnancy is rib pain. During pregnancy naturally your rib cage expands to allow for that growing belly. This sometimes creates pain in the rib joints where they attach to the sternum/chest bone and thoracic spine/upper back. Another culprit can be that little growing baby in your belly stretching their limbs & their daily exercise, kicking & punching you from the inside out. Sarah specialises in treating pregnant women and help relieve rib pain during pregnancy. Treatment is aimed at loosening the rib joints, surrounding muscles, ligaments & joints to make you as comfortable as possible. One top tip is to be mindful of your posture. Sitting slouched compresses your ribs, adding to your rib pain.

Your growing belly & Diastasis Recti🤰
The abdominal cavity expands in all directions when you are pregnant to allow for that baby to grow. Your center of gravity shifts and your muscles can have added tension on them. Diastasis Recti refers to separation of the Rectus Abdominus muscle and creating a visble gap running down the middle of your belly. Approximately effects 66% of women in their 3rd trimester of pregnancy. Sarah's Osteopathic treatment is aimed at working along side a womens physio to help with the aches & pains that can occur with diastasis recti. The women's physio I recommend include; @thevaginaphysio or Femme Physio that works in the same clinic as myself. A women's physio is highly trained with Diastasis Recti and can offer specific exercises to help correct this. I also highly recommend @pregnancyexercise_fitmums4life as well #diastasisrecti #diastasisrectirepair #diastasisrectiexercises #pregnancy #pregnancyosteopath #sarahboughtwoodosteopath #aucklandosteopath #northshoreosteopath #milfordosteopath
