Treating women’s health holistically makes a lot of sense. This includes hormonal complaints, as well as everything to do with pregnancy. A number of clients have experienced how osteopathy can help to relieve symptoms. A broad interdisciplinary network also helps here of course.
An unfulfilled desire to have children, relieving pregnancy-related discomfort, such as nausea, heartburn, pressure, back pain, tension, incontinence, shortness of breath as well as injuries during birth or from a caesarian are topics where your osteopath can provide support.
Osteopathy can also provide support in measures for preparing for a pregnancy, easing the passage of the baby through the pelvis (especially focusing on the pelvis, pelvic floor and diaphragm). Osteopathy is also used in the postpartum check-up and in supporting postpartum regression and breastfeeding.
Women’s health is influenced by the complex interaction between the autonomic nervous, hormonal and immune system. Cyclical hormone fluctuations can have a strong effect on the rest of the body too, such as on the muscles and ligaments. This includes menstrual pains and dysfunctions, pelvic floor dysfunctions, breast pain and discomfort, foreign body sensations and pain in the vagina, abdominal pain and stomach aches, ovarian cysts, ptosis of the organs, recurring bladder infections, incontinence, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, menopausal discomfort and general exhaustion.
Pregnancy: preparation, help with unfulfilled desire to have children, pregnancy support, and postpartum support.
Gynecology: menstrual discomfort, hormone fluctuations, pregnancy (before & after), imbalance of the female organs, processing trauma, etc.
