Martin and Verity Storr are husband and wife owners of The South Coast Clinic Chiropractic Healthcare in St. Leonards. Together they have over 40 years of experience.
What is chiropractic?
Muscles, joints and organs of the human body are controlled by the brain via the nervous system. Interference within the nervous system leads to dysfunction of muscles, joints and organs. This causes pain and if uncorrected, ill health. Chiropractors identify and remove sources of interference to the nervous system.
This is done by a combination of techniques including manipulation, soft tissue work and home exercises.
Over the years we have treated hundreds of women throughout their birthing journey; from ante natal checks up or management of Pelvic Girdle Pain (PGP) to assisting with post natal recovery and treatment of new borns/infants for issues such as sleeping difficulties, feeding difficulties etc.
Our approach is based on returning normal function to the pelvic girdle and spine to ensure that mum’s-to-be can have an active and positive pregnancy and to allow optimal function of the pelvis at the time of birth. We will work with parents to teach home exercises for birthing partners that are safe, gentle and effective both during pregnancy and early labour.
We are registered with the Pelvic Girdle Partnership – a charity supporting women suffering from PGP and the clinic is starting a post natal rehab course for restoring pelvic floor function after delivery.
