Osteopathic monitoring in pregnant women is an important preventive measure. Although pregnancy is a normal physiological state, it requires great coping skills. We help the future mother to live a harmonious pregnancy, maintaining a state of balance, it helps to obtain the best conditions to accommodate the life she carries in it.
The main reasons for consultation during pregnancy:
– Back pain
– Sciatic nerve stuck
– Edema (swelling) of the legs
– Digestive disorders
– Urinary incontinence (leakage)
– Carpal tunnel syndrome
– Discomfort in the lower abdomen
Osteopathic follow-up is a complementary act aimed at a harmonious and safe pregnancy and childbirth. During pregnancy and childbirth, the body’s structures are under severe stress. That’s why many women end up with the following symptoms: pelvic pain, tailbone, spine disruption, duck walking, urinary incontinence, scar pain episiotomy and other joyous inconvenience.
Some specialist also observed that, osteopathy during pregnancy, is a prevention against obstetric disorders.
The mobility of the pelvis is necessary to allow the engagement and the descent of the fetus during the delivery. We must ensure the flexibility of the sacro-iliac joint and coccyx to promote a natural and harmonious birth. The treatments provided by the osteopath are a prevention against the suffering of the fetus and can thus avoid the necessity of the use of forceps and sucker.
During pregnancy, the spine adjusts to the development of the fetus by accentuating its curvatures to maintain its center of gravity. When this column can no longer adjust, it causes tension, creating new information in the body. This new information may be one of the causes of a contractile uterus before term.
In some cases of infertility, the harmonization of anatomical structures can bring beneficial results. This maximizes the proper functioning of the reproductive system.
Following months or years of lack of fertility, couples turn to fertility clinics. When lack of fertility is unexplained by traditional medicine, a complementary approach may be helpful.
The osteopath has expertise when the causes of infertility are mechanical. This lack of fertility can be linked to an imbalance of the pelvis causing tensions at the gynecological level. Ligament retraction, compression of the ovaries and uterus, inadequate positioning, and lack of motility are observed during osteopathic evaluation. It is important to note that compression of the uterine artery makes the mucosa less able to retain the embryo and is sometimes the cause of repeated miscarriage.
The osteopath will rebalance the pelvis, release anatomical gynecological structures for adequate motility, and promote vascularization to maximize nesting and development of the embryo.
This treatment may or may not be complementary to fertility treatment. Consult an osteopath to determine the appropriate time for consultation.
