Getting Back in Shape After a Baby
Having a baby brings a multitude of challenges and of course a lot of joy. For new Mums it is vitally important to be able to find some time to continue with treatment for a known condition or to restore balance to their body post-natal. It is a very common occurrence to have some form of back pain or back related issues during pregnancy due to changes that occur such as the softening of ligaments, weight increase and changes to posture.
At times back pain can begin during pregnancy and continue to be a problem after delivery. If not treated the pain can go on for long periods. Let us also not forget that the repetitive carrying and lifting of both baby and related equipment can not only cause problems but also hinder any kind of recovery. Osteopathy is an excellent aid to this recovery and a great way of starting the process of getting back to a new normal.
Cranial Osteopathy for Babies
Cranial osteopathy is a refined and subtle type of osteopathic treatment, the techniques are safe, gentle and non-manipulative. They are often used when treating adults sensitive to manipulation, young children and babies. It encourages the release of stresses and tensions in the head and throughout the body.
Babies, even only a few days old, can have Cranial Osteopathy using a wide range of safe techniques from very gentle stretching and massage, to Cranial Osteopathy. These techniques are all very gentle as babies are ‘softer’ than adults and they can create deep relaxation, calming and increase wellbeing in babies and children.
Sometimes there is a requirement to work alongside local lactation consultants to give postural and nutritional advice to attempt help with breastfeeding. Occasionally, your Cranial Osteopath may recommend that your baby see a Paediatrician or GP for medical help.
