What is a Pregnancy MOT?
Experiencing aches and pains during pregnancy is common. Pelvic girdle pain is the name given to pain or stiffness around the pelvis and during pregnancy it can affect 1 in 5 women. Fortunately it often can settle down well with some manual therapy, exercise prescription and advice.
Some women in pregnancy may also purely just wish to have a postural and alignment check, advice on how to keep strong during pregnancy and guidance on what to expect in the early stages postnatal in order to be proactive in preventing any issues.
