A simple yet helpful osteopathic exercise is the use of inhibitory pressure on the sacrum to quiet uterine contractions. Lie flat on your back with a large book under your sacrum. To increase the pressure on the sacrum, bring your knees up to your chest and hold you’re your hands.

Kneeling rest your chest and head down on the floor with forehead resting on the back of your hands with arms crossed. The abdominal contents will move with the pull of gravity out of the pelvis and allow decongestion of the uterus. You should do this exercise before retiring at night to obtain a maximal decongestive effect. Do this osteopathic exercise for 5-10 minutes.

Try placing a bag of frozen peas in a tea towel over the front of your pelvis and simultaneously place a hot water bottle on your lower back. This classical osteopathic exercise is an effective natural remedy.

If your menstrual cramps persist consult your nearest osteopath to correct any pelvic imbalance which may be inhibiting normal menstrual function.
