Keep Yourself Healthy And Happy While You're Pregnant With Our Keep Osteopathy For Pregnancy in Fulham
Womens health undergoes a great deal of change throughout pregnancy; with the expanding foetus and added weight, the posture changes. When the pregnancy hormone Relaxin is released, the ligaments and tissues become softer, which can strain joints throughout the body.
Common signs may include joint swelling, aches and pains in the upper back, neck, and shoulders, and pain in the lower back, pelvis, or hips. These symptoms are so common that when it comes to back pain, it affects up to 66% of pregnant women.
Osteopathy can significantly reduce pregnancy discomfort and prepare pregnant moms for delivery.
Our osteopaths at La Dolce Studio in Fulham will relieve your body's aches and pains using mild manual therapies, joint mobilisations, soft tissue releases, and cranial osteopathy procedures. They will make sure your pelvis, hips, and lower back remain flexible and pleasant throughout the many phases of pregnancy.
Additionally, we offer health information and guidance on breathing exercises, stretches, and exercises to support maintaining your health and welfare during pregnancy.

About Osteopathy For Pregnancy
Osteopathy treats the body as a whole or holistically. Osteo means bone, but osteopaths examine and treat the body's tissues, including the muscles, ligaments, connective tissue, bones, and organs.
We are a team of professional and experienced therapists who thoroughly research and care for the body's organs and viscera. This particular set of abilities is what makes osteopathic medicine so effective.
Your body's components are not divided. Your body's cells are connected—every structure, whether directly or indirectly, affects the overall well-being of the other components. And for the most part, proper treatment of an accident or illness necessitates a thorough examination of every bodily area.
An osteopath's objective is to ensure that every structure is in the best possible position and has mobility or motility. A structure operates effectively when it is unrestricted, allowing it to move and express itself as intended. Every structure must be unrestricted to accomplish its job: a small ligament or a large organ like your uterus.
A constrained structure won't just perform poorly now or in the future (days, weeks, or years from now). It will also restrict other structures, their functionality, and so on.
The fundamental goal of an osteopath is to identify the root source(s) of dysfunctions.
Osteopathy is unusual in that it considers all body structures and systems, how they relate, and the problems at hand. In essence, this is what most manual therapists want to do. Our osteopaths are expertly educated to listen, feel, and release any structure that requires assistance.
Osteopathic therapy is generally relatively gentle. When excessive force is applied, structures may respond poorly or not at all. Most of the work will eventually be done by your body, but we can point you in the correct direction and encourage you to pursue good health.
Osteopathy And Pregnancy
The most extensive postural alteration a woman's body will ever experience occurs during pregnancy. The centre of gravity varies as the baby develops in the womb, adding new weight and causing postural variations from week to week. Several aches and pains could result from this.
A woman going through pregnancy goes through massive physical, hormonal, and emotional changes in a relatively short time. The body must adjust to carrying up to 20 pounds more!
If you already have a child, this may be particularly difficult, especially when lifting and carrying the youngster into cots and car seats. Simple activities like walking, sitting, or rolling over in bed may now be difficult or even painful for you. You may also feel backache and pelvic, rib, or hip pain.
These issues are so typical of pregnancy that many assume they are normal. You shouldn't have to endure pain as a result of this! Pain or discomfort is a symptom that your body needs assistance adjusting to its new shape.
Numerous pregnancy-related aches and pains, as well as more specific disorders, including pelvic and groyne pain, can be helped by osteopathy.
Any imbalances may impact the position of the foetus in the pelvis and pelvic ligaments. Osteopaths can advise on proper posture and postures before and during labour using gentle approaches.
Our goal is to assist you in living a better life so that you may enjoy your pregnancy. Our top priority is the safety of the mother and child, and osteopaths are well-versed in prenatal concerns. All phases of pregnancy can safely undergo osteopathic treatment.
After your child's birth, a post-natal checkup may aid your recovery. The goal of treatment is to rebalance the pelvis while gently relieving painful and tired muscles. It can also lessen back pain by lifting your child and using the breast.
Preparation For Labour
It is crucial to remember that any previous back issues or strains from trauma (such as accidents or falls) leave a physical legacy that could appear during pregnancy as the body transforms.
If left untreated, these underlying strains may cause additional musculoskeletal issues, particularly in the pelvis area, and affect the nature of labour and delivery since pelvic constraints may make it more difficult for the bones to separate and move apart during labour.
The osteopath will ensure to optimise the area where the baby grows by treating these dysfunctional areas, which will afterwards urge it to lie correctly and migrate into a better posture.
Because of this, when you visit an osteopath, they will continually assess the mother's pelvis and work to restore excellent balance so that the baby can travel through the birth canal as efficiently as possible.
