Osteocare: Treatment

Pregnancy

Pregnancy should be remembered as a joyful and exciting time; however, for some women pain, discomfort or illness has the potential to override this memorable time.

The most common complaints associated with pregnancy are:

  • Lower back and pelvic pain
  • Sciatica
  • Neck and shoulder discomfort
  • Swollen ankles and wrists
  • Breathing difficulties

Osteopaths can assess and treat these pregnancy related complaints.

Osteopathic techniques used during pregnancy are carefully selected and are safe and gentle for mother and baby.

 

Babies and Children

The calm, gentle, soothing approach of Osteopathy makes it ideal for treating children, including newborns.

Using sensitive palpatory skills, Osteopaths can identify if and where the child’s structure has been disturbed during childbirth.

Common ailments include:

  • Reflux or colic
  • Breathing problems such as asthma
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Wry neck
  • Feeding and attachment problems
  • Childhood accidents and falls
  • Infections such as ear and throat, or inflammatory conditions
  • Poor posture or scoliosis
