Osteopathy in pregnancy
The most frequent disorders in pregnancy are: lower back pain, cervicalgia, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, often caused by structural changes that occur in pregnant women.
Osteopathic therapy during pregnancy supports and accompanies the woman during this wonderful process of physical transformation. Osteopathic treatment is aimed at both the prevention and treatment of possible musculoskeletal disorders due to structural changes in the body throughout pregnancy. In particular, the muscular and ligamentous structures of the pelvis and of the sacral loin column perform remarkable adaptations and changes during the growth of the unborn child. The osteopath uses manual techniques in order to allow the body the best possible adaptation to these structural "upsetting". The osteopathic treatment is useful in the preparation for delivery of the musculoskeletal structures of the pelvis and ensures a prompt and rapid recovery in the post-partum period.
