Pregnancy & Paediatric
During pregnancy there are a whole host of postural problems that can occur due to the increasing excess anterior weight. This can be seen as hip pain, lower back pain, mid-back pain and in many other joints too! This can also be due to the hormone relaxin. This hormone allows the ligaments to relax, and therefore permits joints to move a little more than we'd like, causing pain and irritation of joints. There are many techniques that are safe and gentle, and can be used throughout pregnancy.
"Cranial osteopathy is not different to osteopathy, it is the name given to a subtle and refined approach to osteopathy that follows all the principles of osteopathy, and it is used throughout the body not just in the head. The name cranial osteopathy simply refers to the fact that it includes the structures inside the head. Cranial osteopaths use a highly developed sense of touch to feel subtle changes of tension and tissue quality in the living anatomy of the whole body, and to diagnose areas of strain or dysfunction."

Your osteopath will always make sure you seek appropriate medical advice alonside osteopathy treatment if needed.
