Osteopathic treatment is safe during all stages of pregnancy, utilising a gentle approach to help ease aches and pain.


Women can suffer many common ailments which are suitable for Osteopathic Treatment including:
- Low back pain.
- Hip pain.
- Pubic symphysis diastasis (PSD).
- Neck and shoulder pain.
- Headaches.
- Rib pain.

During pregnancy, a woman’s body undergoes significant postural, hormonal and biomechanical changes, which can have a profound effect on their daily functioning. Osteopathic treatment can help support pregnant women to better cope with these changes both during and after pregnancy.

What Techniques Are Used During Pregnancy?

Techniques may include soft tissue massage, myofascial stretching, gentle manipulation, articulation (or gentle mobility), and exercise prescription. When treating throughout pregnancy the goal is to ensure that the muscular and skeletal system is relaxed, aligned and balanced to provide optimum conditions for positioning, descent, and passage of the baby through the birth canal during delivery.
