What Conditions Are Treatable with Osteopathy Services?
Do you have problems with backpain? Maybe you experience generalized discomfort and body aches? Are you stressed and notice your upper back, neck, and shoulders always feel tight and tense? Do you have arthritis or other types of joint problems?
There are just some of the different types of conditions that can be treated using osteopathy services. Essentially, injury that results in pain and discomfort, including medical conditions that cause chronic pain, can benefit from osteopathy treatments.
How Are Osteopathy Treatments Performed?
Osteopathy treatments use a wide range of hands-on, manual techniques to help restore balance within the body. When the body and its systems are in balance, you will feel better, become stronger, and have more energy.
Some of the various treatments and techniques your Osteopath could use include:
- Deep Tissue Massage
- Deep Tissue Pressure
- Joint Manipulation
- Stretching of the Soft Tissues
- Strengthening Exercises
- Ligament Manipulation
- Spinal Adjustments
- Cranial Massage
- Hot and Cold Compressions
Furthermore, osteopaths may use other forms of preventative treatments, like sports taping to provide additional support for an existing injury, as well as to reduce the risks of reinjury after recovery. Osteopaths are trained to utilize other types of chiropractic and physiotherapy treatments for a well-rounded treatment plan.
Why Use Osteopathy to Treat Painful Conditions and Injuries?
Osteopathy treatments are designed to help alleviate pain and discomfort while promoting faster recovery. Your osteopath will determine the root cause of your condition and include treating that cause as part of your treatment plan.
Osteopathy treatments are non-invasive and drug-free, so there are relatively few, if any side effects. Furthermore, osteopathy can be used on anyone regardless of their age including infants, toddlers, children, tweens, teens, adults, pregnant women, and the elderly.
How Long Often Are Osteopathy Treatments?
The duration of osteopathy treatments will vary from one patient to the next. It depends on the type of injury or chronic condition, as well as the root causes. Initially, treatments may be recommended several times a week to help alleviate pain and promote a speedy recovery.
As your body heals and becomes stronger, treatments can become weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. Treatment maintenance after recovery, further increases your body’s strength, promotes a stronger immune system, and promotes better overall health and well-being. Plus, you can reduce the risks of reinjury and help keep the systems within your body working together harmoniously and correctly.
Are Osteopathy Treatments Painful?
Depending on the extent of the injury or chronic condition, there can be some minor discomfort and pain when beginning treatments. Many patients often notice less pain and discomfort at the end of their first treatment. Some patients also report a general sense of feeling refreshed and relaxed after treatments.
