Fertility & osteopathy

Many couples experience difficulty conceiving nowadays and go through enormous efforts in their attempt to have a baby. IVF is a common procedure and involves the woman having hormonal treatment to produce eggs which are harvested and fertilized by her partner’s sperm in the lab. Once fertilized, the embryo is re-implanted and hopefully will grow to a healthy baby. Normally couples are under a lot of pressure and stress during this process which can add to the initial problem.

Osteopathy as a manual therapy may be able to help by restoring structural function to the spine and pelvis. This means, that the nervous supply as well as blood supply will be restored to pelvic organs, addressing the hormonal balance and lymphatic drainage to the area. It can be of help before, during and after fertilization occurs.
