Gynaecology and pelvic floor

Pelvic floor therapy with the osteopath

Our aim is allowing women’s to restore their optimal health in different phases of their life, that can cause several sorts of physical and emotional stress.

The osteopath’s view on the pelvic floor?

These stress factors are stored in the body in different forms, often in the reproductive system. As an example, abdominal structures (like ligaments, fascia and organs) could stick together in areas where they should not be connected. Such a pattern may lead to lymphatic congestion, lack of mobility and functional changes that limit the person.

What kind of gynecology complaints?

Fertility problems: hormonal therapy, intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization.
Hormonal imbalances: extremely painful periods, vaginismus and vulvodynia, bladder-related problems, endometriosis, PCOS, etc.
postpartum and pregnancy: chronic pelvic pain (CPP), pelvic floor instability, traumatic childbirth, postpartum depression, fibroids, episiotomy, etc.

Osteopathy relieves these tensions through manual therapy. Our techniques can release fascial restrictions, mobilize tight ligaments and help drain clogged lymphatic vessels. All of this can be applied to the reproductive system and can provide pain relief for patients with chronic pelvic pain syndrome.

We work on the individual

The goal is to individualize obvious findings such as pain, reduced organ mobility or tightness. The ultimate importance is to resolve these findings by assessing the pelvic region (muscles, bones, fascia, organs), improving the tone of the pelvic floor muscles and their physiological actions of suspension, drainage and ability to maintain the health of the pelvic floor to guarantee.

The treatment is highly individualized and patient-oriented: a clear explanation and informed consent always precede the osteopathic examination and assessment.

The techniques are performed externally and/or internally to evaluate the mobility, tenderness, tightness of organs, fascia and joints of the pelvic area. Any techniques will be explained and applied before permission is given. The techniques are not a substitute for medical diagnostic imaging. Performing ultrasound, MRI and laparoscopic/histological diagnosis remains necessary for any medical diagnosis.
