caused by an existing back condition for which I'd already had surgery. Faced with nine months of discomfort and the possibility that pain would increase as the pregnancy progressed, I decided to explore alternative treatments. I visited Lorraine at her practice in Cavan and after just three treatments I was practically pain free.
As the months passed, my back pain didn't return but I continued to attend Lorraine for relief from pregnancy-related aches and pains. Her treatment and manipulations are very gentle, which is well suited to pregnancy, and I found the sessions very relaxing and effective." Ursula
“I am a 29 year old who is 6 months pregnant with my second child. I suffered a great deal with back and pubic pain in my first pregnancy because one of my vertebrae was rubbing against my sciatic nerve so I underwent intense physiotherapy.
Unfortunately it didn’t provide me with any relief and I found the process itself quite painful. When the pains returned during this pregnancy a friend of mine suggested that I go to see Lorraine Bennett. Having seen Lorraine for one session I felt immediately better and actually enjoyed the treatment as it is quite a gentle therapy.
From this appointment I was no longer suffering any back pain and I was able to walk, drive and sleep properly for the first time in ages. Therefore I would have no qualms about recommending Lorraine to anyone experiencing pregnancy related back pain.” Eugenea.
"Due to a bad car crash in my late teens & owning to the injuries I received,
I’ve had to endure years of chronic back pain. I’ve tried all sorts of treatments & medication but with every day life my injuries kept resurfacing.
I’m now in my thirties & in July 2010, 3 months pregnant, my back already acting up & physio never quite getting rid of my pain, the prospects of carrying a wee bundle for another 6months looked miserable. Through a family member I arranged to see Lorraine the Osteopath in Cavan & I’ve never looked back.
She diagnosed problems which all connected, from my headaches, neck stiffness, shoulder stiffness, trapped nerves, and pain across my middle & lower back & over a number of sessions treated the lot.
