Osteopathy for Women is extremely useful both during and after pregnancy. Although pregnancy is mostly a happy and joyous event for many women, it can also be very challenging from a physical perspective. Postural changes combined with hormonal changes within the body and the extra weight of the baby can put a lot of strain on the bodies structure. Osteopathy treatments designed especially for pregnant women (and women who have recently given birth) can be extremely helpful when it comes to managing physical changes caused by pregnancy.
Osteopathy can help many common musculoskeletal women’s health problems and a variety of different conditions; not just those that are pregnancy related. From teenage years to postmenopausal years, Osteopathy could be a helpful treatment.
Your first Osteopathy for Women Treatment
At CBR Clinics, we have a wealth of experience in providing Osteopathy to pregnant women and those who have recently given birth. Our Osteopaths are expertly equipped to assess you and give you the best possible treatment for your condition.
When you first visit CBR Clinics for any treatment, including specialist Osteopathy for Women, we like to learn a bit about you and your body before we begin treatment. Time will be spent talking through and assessing any conditions that are or have been present in the past before any physical therapy commences.
Below are just a few of the issues that we commonly use Women’s Osteopathy to treat here at CBR Clinics:
- General muscular back pain
- SDP (Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction)
- Sacro-iliac joint pain – pain in the lower back
- Sciatica and leg pain associated with back pain
- Rib and thoracic spine pain
- Neck aches and headaches
- Joint swelling
Osteopathy in postnatal care provides a hands-on approach to relieving your discomfort. The treatment also advises pelvic floor exercises, lifting and carrying your baby, postural advice and safe exercises.
What is Osteopathy for Women?
Osteopathy is a holistic approach that focuses on the integral structure of your body and evaluates how muscles, bones and connective tissues work together. It works towards fixing the causes of conditions and restoring your bodies natural balance. Osteopathy is not a treatment that merely treats the symptoms.
Osteopathy for pregnancy
During pregnancy, Osteopathy can play a vital role in alleviating the pain and discomfort in various areas of the body. Osteopathic techniques can also help pregnant women prepare for labour and less painful delivery.
