Women’s Health, Pregnancy Massage & Birth in Sydney
Have you struggled to recover from the birth of your child? are you struggling through your pregnancy? Is your pregnancy exhausting and painful? Do you suffer from PMS, endometriosis or period pain? Do you find sexual intercourse painful? Do you feel embarrassed and debilitated by incontinence? Are you struggling to conceive?
Each of these problems has a characteristic mechanical strain pattern that contributes to the dysfunction. Consequently, osteopathy and chiropractic can and has helped many women with these kinds of complaints. There is no particularly complex explanation for these problems - simply put, if the structure is strained, the function will be compromised. A twisted pelvis will affect the inner organs of the uterus, the cervix, the ovaries, the bladder. The lie of the growing foetus will be affected. A strained pelvic floor will affect the urethra, the clitoris, the vagina and the cervix.
At CSO we have been caring for Sydney mum's and their progeny for more than three decades. What's really sweet is that many of those babies have come back to see us, pregnant themselves!
The care we offer aims to normalise the strains in the structures of the body that influence the mechanics of the pelvis and the growing foetus are stable, symmetrical, adaptable and mobile.
We like to see women once a month from week 7 until week 34, and then weekly until the birth to ensure your pregnancy care is working. After birth, we like to see you after a week or ten days. If you find that you’re not sleeping or are in pain, book an appointment as soon as you can.
Post natal osteopathic care concentrates on achieving good supply and mobility of the upper thorax, to supply the breasts, the lumbar spine and the external pelvic floor itself. We do not encourage pelvic floor contraction as a standalone therapy until we have resolved the birth-induced strain in the pelvic floor. We have seen that many problems post-partum, such as incontinence, painful sexual intercourse and postnatal mood disorder, can be related to unresolved pain, strains and subsequent insomnia. It’s not just the infant who is keeping you awake - its strain and pain. You can't sleep if every time you turn, your body complains. And if you don't sleep, things unravel very quickly.
Most of our referrals come from midwives, doulas and previous patients, because we do the job. We help women through every stage of pregnancy, including and post natal care.
