Osteopathic care throughout pregnancy provides the mum to be with the special benefit of adjusting the functions of her body to the demands of the progressing pregnancy. Seemingly minor problems, especially those in the back may be the beginning of a lifetime of musculo-skeletal difficulties.
Pregnancy treatment includes soft tissue work, articulation, manipulation and relief of gravitational strain. Advice may be given on improving posture, breathing and increasing the facilitation and drainage of blood and lymphatic fluid. No one wants swollen ankles!!
Even if you are not experiencing any discomfort or pain, a check up can be useful to give you advice on problems that might occur, as well as exercise, diet and posture.
You can continue to have regular monthly check ups and treatment for any aches and pains, which may have started to occur. During this time hormones are released including ones that relax your ligaments in preparation for birth. Osteopathic techniques can correct spinal and pelvic imbalances and maintain a healthy posture throughout the whole of your pregnancy.
The Post-natal period is a perfect time to seek treatment to ensure that whilst the body is getting back to normal, the pelvis, joints and muscles are aligned and balanced without restriction to avoid further discomfort. Nursing a new baby also adds stresses and strains to your spine all which can be eased thorough gentle osteopathic treatment.
