Busy child minder in her 40s. The nature of her job required her to be on the go all the time with lots of heavy lifting in awkward positions.

Presenting symptoms:

Patient developed localised back pain during pregnancy. Pain level rated 7/10 (10 being the worst). Patient had tried physiotherapy and osteopathy before acupuncture. 

Outcome: 

3 sessions of acupuncture was able to stop the pain and allowed her to get back to normal activities.

Advice

See a physiotherapist after child birth for back strengthening exercises.

Testimonial:

"Thank you so much for helping with my back pain while I was pregnant! Just to let you know that I gave birth to a baby girl and we named her Ivy L G Farrell weighing 6lb 15oz. "

Ivy's thoughts:

A lot of women develop back pain and sciatica during pregnancy. Acupuncture can be a very safe and effective method of treatment for pregnancy related conditions  such as back pain, sciatica, morning sickness, breeched position and labour induction.
