Osteopathy for pregnant women

OSTEOPATHY FOR PREGNANT WOMEN

During the course of pregnancy, your body will experience numerous changes. In the first weeks there is a rapid hormonal change, which can cause nausea, vomiting, headaches and fatigue. Osteopathy for pregnant women supports you to live through this transition phase more easily.

Later, the hormones ensure that all the tissues become softer. This is necessary so that the little person growing inside you has enough space. The softening ligaments can cause instability in the joints. This often causes back pain and discomfort in the sacroiliac joints. The entire pelvic ring becomes wider and looser, and pain in the symphysis area is also not uncommon during pregnancy. The osteopath supports and corrects the changes in the pelvic area with gentle grips and thus tries to make the adjustment easier for you.

The goal of osteopathy for pregnant women is to help your body make adjustments by using gentle craniosacral techniques to calm the autonomic nervous system.

AREAS OF APPLICATION during PREGNANCY

  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Headache/Migraine

  • Back pain

  • ISG - sacroiliac joint complaints

  • Restless Legs (RLS)

  • Breathing problems

  • Circulatory problems

GOAL OF OSTEOPATHIC SUPPORT DURING PREGNANCY

  • good adaptation to the required conversion structures

  • To alleviate pregnancy-related discomfort

  • balance the muscle tone of the pelvic floor and keep it elastic

  • to eliminate possible movement restrictions of the pelvic girdle, the coccyx

  • to favourably influence the innervation of the bladder, intestine and sphincter muscles

  • Stabilize the circulation of mother and child and improve blood flow

  • Improve decongestion of water retention in the legs

  • relax the psoas muscle, which is important for childbirth

  • prevent compression of organs and vessels due to the weight of the child

  • to support the turning of the child into the correct birth position

Osteopathic treatment after childbirth is important and can be used to accompany the physical changes after childbirth, to promote tissue regression and pelvic floor stability, as well as to accelerate regeneration from the stresses of pregnancy. If a caesarean section has been necessary, osteopathic treatment can ensure that the scar heals well and prevent later problems caused by adhesions.

ARE THERE RISKS ARE THE TREATMENTS DANGEROUS?

Both the body of a pregnant woman due to hormones and the growing child react more sensitively to treatment techniques, so the treatment technique must be adapted accordingly. This requires a lot of experience and empathy from the therapist. A well-trained osteopath can easily implement this and will support mother and child with gentle treatment techniques and bring them into balance.

EXPERIENCE WITH OSTEOPATHY FOR PREGNANT WOMEN

In my practice I have found that most patients respond very well to osteopathic techniques, as they are very gentle and non-invasive. Many pregnant women let themselves be accompanied osteopathically on their way through pregnancy and can enjoy the time when the baby is developing in the belly in a more relaxed way.

I look forward to accompanying you on your journey!

Gladly again at any time! This is my second pregnancy and I am glad that I let Ms. Wunsch accompany me during this one. Sensitive and experienced, she shows me my tensions in the pelvis and gives me good tips on how I can relax better at home. For me: no more pregnancy without osteopathic support from Mrs. Wunsch. Thank you already now!
