Pregnancy is often a joyous time in a woman’s life. She is growing another living being within her and is soon to become a parent, or become a parent again. Most of the time women are able to move through their pregnancies with relative ease. When that is not the case, there are options that do not involve medication. Osteopathic manipulative medicine is a non-invasive, gentle approach that can address many of the slight hiccups that pregnancy can bring about. Four common issues that can be addressed with osteopathic manipulative medicine are nausea, constipation, carpal tunnel syndrome, and back pain all related to pregnancy.
