These days there are so many different treatments out there for different issues and challenges so why should you choose Osteopathy?
One of the things that I love about Osteopathy is that it’s about “treating the person, not the disease”, looking at your body as a whole and as an individual.
The principle is that all body parts are interconnected and the function of one part of the body is dependant on another.
If you’re suffering from a chronic illness such as asthma, arthritis, IBS, for example, your osteopath will be able to treat and alleviate your symptoms. This is a huge benefit and relief for people who are having challenges just getting through their daily routines.
Many people are under the assumption that osteopath’s just deal with your bones and muscles, or your back and neck.
There’s so much more to this amazing practice.
Osteopathy deals with a whole range of ailments and even if you haven’t heard much about it before now, it’s been around for awhile…
It was Andrew Taylor, a doctor, who invented this branch of health in the 1800’s.
So why choose Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a natural medicine with the intention of restoring the normal function of the body by treating the causes of pain and imbalances that may be the result of injury, illness, stress, and the just regular old stresses that we put on our body on a daily basis.
It supports the philosophy that the body has an innate and natural ability to self regulate and heal.
An osteopath treats your body using a mixture of gentle techniques including:
- Massage to release and relax muscles
- Stretching stiff joints
- Moving your joints through their natural range of motion or articulation
Osteopathy for Curing Pain
Osteopathic treatment can be used to effectively reduce and cure pain in a number of different areas including back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, frozen shoulder, ankle sprains (and more)
- Remove the underlying cause of pain
- Reduce pain and stiffness in muscles and joints
- Increase the range of motions in the joints
- Treat spinal problems resulting from poor posture or spinal disk injuries
- Relieve chronic pain through non-invasive treatment
- Decrease the stress on the joints
- Reduce tension in the body
- Relieve tension headaches and migraine headaches
- Help the body to adapt to hormonal and structural changes during pregnancy
Osteopathy for Relaxation
By giving you time to be aware of yourself and your body, osteopathy can be very relaxing. It is also known to reduce stress levels by increasing the efficiency of your body’s systems like blood flow, nerve supply, and the immune system.
- Increase circulation
- Reduce blood pressure
Osteopathy is a whole body treatment, which focuses on the motto, ‘prevention is better than cure’.
Osteopathic treatment can be extremely gentle and can also be very relaxing.
If you're wondering what it costs for these treatments, remember to check in with your benefits (if you're so fortunate to have some)
You may already have insurance coverage for Osteopathy, and not even know it, so check with your provider – it’s so worth having the treatments, with or without insurance!
