Shortness of Breath

The lower ribs, mid back and diaphragm muscle all play an important role in the normal mechanics of breathing. As the baby begins to push up into the abdomen during the later stages of pregnancy, postural changes can increase strain on these areas, leading to breathing difficulties or shortness of breath. Osteopathy can help improve the function of these areas by restoring mobility to the rib cage as a whole.
