List of Disorders (in which Women’s health Osteopathy may help):

  • Menstrual disorders (e.g., dysmenorrhea, irregular periods)
  • Pelvic pain and dysfunction (e.g., pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis)
  • Pregnancy-related musculoskeletal complaints (e.g., low back pain, pelvic girdle pain)

Women's Health Osteopathy

Mechanism of Treatment: Women’s health osteopathy employs a holistic approach to treatment, focusing on restoring balance and function to the musculoskeletal system, optimizing alignment and mobility, and addressing underlying dysfunctions contributing to women’s health issues. Osteopathic manipulative techniques, such as myofascial release, visceral manipulation, and cranial osteopathy, are utilized to address tissue restrictions, improve circulation, and support the body’s self-healing mechanisms.

Clinical Applications: Women’s health osteopathy is applied across various stages of a woman’s life, from adolescence to menopause, to address a wide range of health concerns. For example, osteopathic interventions have been shown to alleviate menstrual pain and improve menstrual regularity in women with dysmenorrhea (Licciardone et al., 2012). Additionally, osteopathic treatment during pregnancy has been associated with reduced low back pain and improved overall well-being (Licciardone et al., 2010).

Women’s health osteopathy offers a comprehensive and integrative approach to addressing women’s health concerns, focusing on optimizing musculoskeletal health, promoting physiological balance, and enhancing overall quality of life.
