the abdomen and pelvic organs are made up of specialised tissue or smooth muscle and have ligament attachments to hold them in place. As with the rest of the human body, this area can become inflammed, the muscles can spasm and infections can occur. Surgery to the abdomen is also very common causing scar tissue to build up.
Visceral Osteopathy aids to relax off the restrictions felt and improve the function of the underlying tissues and organs. The abdomen and pelvic organs are treated through the use of gently external palpation.
