How Osteopaths can Help During and After Pregnancy

Osteopaths are trained to assist women in managing the physiological and structural changes during pregnancy through a range of hands-on techniques. We specialise in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of musculoskeletal issues, which are particularly relevant during pregnancy as the body adapts to accommodate the growing fetus.

Osteopathic treatment during pregnancy is centered on enhancing the body’s ability to adapt and recover, focusing on relieving tension, improving mobility, and ensuring the pelvis and spine are functioning correctly. By addressing these aspects, osteopaths aim to alleviate common pregnancy-related discomforts such as backache, pelvic pain, and sciatica, thereby improving overall comfort and well-being.

Cranial Osteopathy for Pregnant Women

Postpartum, osteopaths provide valuable support in the recovery process, addressing any issues in the body following childbirth. As Osteopaths, we use gentle manual osteopathic techniques to restore proper alignment and function to the musculoskeletal system, which can be beneficial in managing postural issues, muscle imbalances, and the stresses of caring for a newborn.

Osteopathic care during this stage is tailored to promote healing, enhance recovery, and prevent chronic pain, allowing new mothers to return to their daily activities with greater ease and comfort. Additionally, osteopathic treatment can be integral in promoting well-being, contributing to the overall physical and emotional recovery after childbirth.
