The benefit of osteopathy during pregnancy

For women and mothers, osteopathy helps with the discomfort of pregnancy, prepare for labour as well as the recovery especially if the birth has been difficult or there was some trauma (premature baby, breach). Osteopathy might reduce the need for medication during childbirth. 
It will also help women with  any pelvic or back pain and women suffering from endometriosis.

The different techniques used by our women’s health & pregnancy osteopaths are

  1. Myofascial release osteopathy use a constant pressure until release is achieved. It is primarily used for myofascial structures.
  2. Cranial and Cranio sacral osteopathy use light touch to feel and ‘listen’ to your body much like when the medical historic is taken. Contacts are made at the base of the spine, the head as well as other areas depending on the symptoms.
  3. Soft tissue or manipulations is a manual technique used to to stretch or relax dysfunctional soft tissue structures.
  4. Visceral osteopathy: Our visceral organs form an important part of our anatomy and physiology, making them a significant consideration when formulating an osteopathic diagnosis and treatment plan. The holistic approach to osteopathy emphasises this. This is usually preformed through a gentle external massage often on the abdomen.
