Harley Street Physiotherapy for Pregnancy
At Mike Squirrell Physiotherapy we appreciate the demands on working and home mothers in London while pregnant or with a newborn. Many women during pregnancy experience back pain due to the added pressure from the growing baby on their pelvis and spinal nerves as well as anxiety during and after pregnancy due to the stress of caring for their newborn. Physiotherapy and holistic healthcare in pregnancy is an essential part of pre and post-natal care for mothers and their new baby.
“Three months into my first pregnancy I began suffering with terrible back ache. After seeing several osteopaths to no avail I was recommended to see Mike at Harley Street. I wish I had gone to see him sooner. He diagnosed the problem quickly and professionally and cured the pain in 4 Physiotherapy sessions.” Elise Thomson, Ernst & Young
“Mike looked after me the whole way during my pregnancy keeping my energy levels high and my body fit and healthy.” Kelly Donald, Pfizer
"I went to see Mike after 2 cycles of IVF and finally being told by my GP and my gynaecologist I had no chance of ever becoming pregnant due to my age. Mike reassured me immediately that was not the case and put me on a programme of acupuncture, nutritional and herbal support for 6 weeks. After 3 months I fell pregnant with my first child. The man is a miracle worker." Carla Petria, Unilever
"Mike saw me through my first cycle of IVF to ensure optimum health and energy levels. I wanted to boost my chance of getting pregnant in every way and two of my friends had recommended Mike after they had successful IVF programs. Needless to say it was successful and I have since had another child naturally after Mike’s help boosting the health of my system. He is fabulous." Katherine Thomas,Ernst & Young
"I went to see Mike after having fibroid surgery and one of my fallopian tubes was damaged in the process. I wanted to have a child and was worried that in the future the surgery would seriously affect my chances. Mike’s treatments helped me regain balance in my body and energy system. I now have a beautiful baby girl and I am certain that this is mostly due to Mike’s healing hands." Ayana De Beers
“I went to see Mike for acute morning sickness associated with a first time pregnancy. I was in a terrible state with constant 24-hour nausea, headaches, and gastric upsets that were not alleviated by homeopathy, reflexology, Chinese acupuncture or conventional treatments. I made 3 appointments, and within 24 hours of the first session I was noticeably 75% better. By the third session my nausea had cleared completely and my overall gastric problems had vanished. I would recommend Japanese acupuncture wholeheartedly for similar conditions. I was astonished at its immediacy and depth of effect.” Nina Sebastiane, Broadcaster
Physiotherapy in Pregnancy
How can Physiotherapy help me during pregnancy?
Pre-existing pelvic and spinal imbalances usually become overtaxed when pregnant. The added stress leads to discomfort and difficulty while performing regular activities. Regular physiotherapy throughout pregnancy can relieve the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. At Mike Squirrell Physiotherapy, we accurately diagnose and treat all pregnancy-associated pain:
• Back pain
• Hip pain
• Neck pain
• Sacro-iliac joint pain
We give specific adjustments to restore balance and eliminate stresses in your pelvis and spine that result in greater comfort and a return to pain-free walking, sitting and lifting.
