Osteopathy & Pregnancy

The beauty of osteopathy is that it is a non-invasive drug free treatment. During pregnancy is an ideal time to be treated as pregnancy loosens ligaments, making the treatments more effective, requiring fewer treatments for an old injury.

However, as pregnancy itself develops it may cause postural changes and back pain. The osteopath makes a structural assessment and encourages the spine to function well and the joints move freely while reducing muscle tension.
