Osteopathy & Pregnancy

London Osteopath: Osteopathy for Women and Pregnant Women at home

osteo women-mummys_physio_londonOsteopaths work different techniques to diagnose medical conditions and allows the body to heal itself using its own healing mechanisms. 
It is a completely natural therapy, which identify and treats mobility restrictions. 
By working on the integral structure of the body, and looking at how bones, muscles and connective tissues work together, osteopathy will restore your body to a balance. 
The patient is assessed from a functional and postural angle, treating the body as a whole structure. Osteopathy is a holistic approach, which focus on the root of the problems rather than fixing the consequences.

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 infertility problems, any pelvic or back pain and women suffering from endometriosis.

Our osteopaths work closely with patients to help them achieve a high level of wellness by focusing on health education, injury prevention, and disease prevention.

The different techniques used by our osteopaths are:

Myofascial release, which use a constant pressure until release is achieved. It is primarily used for myofascial structures.

Cranial and Cranio sacral therapy 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.

Soft tissue or manipulations is a manual technique used to to stretch or relax dysfunctional soft tissue structures.

Visceral technique, 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.
