Suffering Back Pain?
Osteopathy the key to Back Pain
Osteopathy is one of the most effective treatments available for pain. Thousands of people worldwide are testament to its fast, non-invasive, permanent relief from pain. Many treatments and therapies exist for muscle & joint pain, but they can often be very slow to work or may even be ineffective.
Osteopathy is the one treatment that consistently provides long-lasting results.Sometimes in life, we forget to look after ourselves. We let our muscles become stiff and tight. We wake up morning and we can’t touch our toes any more. Then one day you bend over to tie a shoe lace and you find you can’t stand up because your back muscles have locked and won’t let you move. Some people find tension build-up goes to their neck, and they wake one morning and can’t look left or right.
This is all treatable and preventable. But mostly we tend to just live with aches and pains, a constant dull ache in the low back, a stiff neck, headaches, and sore shoulders. We think it is just part of life, a side effect of modern day living, but it doesn’t have to be like that.
If you don’t look after your muscles and joints, they will become stiff, tight, creaky and begin to break down and cause you pain. If you don’t put oil in a car, it will break down. If you leave it standing out in the rain for 20 years it will become rusty, creaky and slow.
How can osteopathy help my back pain?
Osteopaths are skilled in diagnosing and treating back pain. Most back troubles result from mechanical disturbances of the spine.
Osteopaths are trained in analyzing your spine not just from a pathological perspective but in terms of how it functions. An osteopath will assess how your spine is working as a whole, he sees pain as a warning sign from the body that something is wrong and needs to be treated.
Osteopathy is grounded in the understanding that pain is a sign of imbalance within the body. The osteopath identifies points of stiffness and weakness and identifies excessive strain throughout the body.
After a thorough assessment, the osteopath will employ a variety of gentle techniques, such as soft-tissue massage, joint mobilization, spinal manipulation, and muscle stretching to ease your back pain.
