Osteopathic treatment has been known to help with many symptoms associated with pregnancy such as:

  • Generalised muscular back pain
  • SPD (Symphasis Pubis Dysfunction) - pain or discomfort in the joint at the front of the pelvis
  • Sacroiliac joint pain - presenting as pain in the lower back
  • 'Sciatica', buttock and/or leg pain associated with back pain
  • Rib and thoracic spinal pain - this may lead to breathlessness and difficulty in deep breathing
  • Neck aches and headaches of a mechanical nature
  • Heartburn - As the uterus expands, the diaphragm may be distorted and contribute to heartburn

 

It is important to encourage normal physiological change, supporting the body as it adapts to the stresses and strains of pregnancy. Osteopathy offers a safe and effective way of dealing with these common symptoms.

 

What is Osteopathy?

 

Osteopathy is a primary health care system, complementary to other medical practices. It is suitable for almost anyone and can contribute to the treatment and management of a wide range of problems.

 

Primarily, osteopaths work through the neuro-musculo-skeletal system, mostly on muscles, joints and fascia, using a holistic and patient-centred approach.

 

A core principle behind osteopathy is the idea of the body being an integrated and indivisible whole, containing self-healing mechanisms that can be utilised as part of the treatment.  No part of the body works, or can be considered, in isolation.  Relevant bio-pyschosocial factors also form part of the process of patient diagnosis.

 

The key tools for osteopathic diagnosis include listening to the patient's history, examining muscles and joints and observing movements. X-rays, scans and other clinical investigations can also be used if required. Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle, non-invasive manual techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint articulation and manipulation are applied therapeutically.Our holistic approach to treatment utilises these gentle techniques to promote and encourage the body's natural healing processes.

Osteopaths study a 4 year degree with emphasis on anatomy and musculoskeletal medicine. This includes anatomy, physiology, pathology and biomechanics, as well as over 1000 hours of clinical training with patients.

 

Osteopaths must be registered with the General Osteopathic Council in order to practice and call themselves an Osteopath. Patients may be referred by their doctor, or may opt to see an Osteopath independently.
