A woman’s body is subject to changes during pregnancy. These changes include the softening of ligaments, increase in weight and changes to posture. This can lead to additional pressure on joints in various parts of the body, including the spine and pelvis.
Our treatments will help your body recover from these additional stresses and strains placed upon it during pregnancy, as well as additional mechanical stresses placed upon it caring for a baby; extra bending and carrying, or by adopting unsuitable nursing positions.
Babies skeletons are softer than an adult’s, we therefore use gentler techniques such as cranial Osteopathy when treating babies. Cranial techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative, and can help to soothe and relax your baby.
Osteopathy is suitable for children at all stages of development, we can assess your child to see what might help.
