Osteopathic Principles within the Perinatal Period
There is often some confusion and skepticism regarding the treatment methods of manual therapies and in particular Osteopathy. The principles of Osteopathic Medicine were discovered over 100 years ago by Dr A T still, a Medical Doctor and Surgeon. This presentation aims to outline the key principles of Osteopathy that will enable a clearer understanding of how anatomy and physiology are addressed in relation to structure and function of the human body. The application of Osteopathic Medicine will be discussed in particular to the pregnant woman and the immediate postnatal period. The research surrounding osteopathy will be discussed and some thought provoking theories around common compensatory patterns in the newborn. Abdominal palpation and the birthing process will be touched on in relation to newborn discomforts. The presentation will be thought provoking and will highlight areas of research that are well overdue for both osteopathic medicine, and the care of the newborn within midwifery.
