Osteopathy is a non-invasive form of therapy. It is drug free and focuses on the whole body. It not only treats the affected part, but also other parts of the body. The basic point of focus is muscles, spine and joints. Problems that are treated are back pain, tennis elbow, headache, arthritis, postural problems and digestive issues. Other factors that can be positively affecting our body are lymphatic symptoms and sleep cycles. So, this is a form of non-invasive alternative treatment. It is used along with conventional treatment. The doctors are MDs and are properly trained.
Quite a few problems are treated by osteopathy. These are arthritis, back pain, elbow pain, headaches, golfer’s elbow and postural problems due to sports injury and digestive issues. Hand and shoulder pain is also treated with this therapy. Even, osteopathy pregnancy therapy works to treat infertility problems.
Due to sitting job and sedentary lifestyle poor posture is resulting to back pain. The treatment offered in a reputed osteopathic clinic involves manipulation that is gentle and subtle. The muscles and soft tissues are manipulated with this therapy. Doctors or therapists stretch or massage the muscle with hands. But osteopathy cannot solve all problems. In case of slip disk or other conditions, osteopathy cannot be the only option. Professionals may suggest conventional treatment after an imaging test. This therapy can be used as a preventive care too. Some problems can be cured or at least checked with early treatment. The doctor can help patients with lifting techniques, breathing, posture and stretching exercises. Improved posture will help a patient a lot and the pain will also be lessened.
Discomfort and pain can keep a person awake the whole night leading to insomnia. Along with the pain the reduced amount of sleep will make it harder to do regular works. The ability to work and cope up with pain will also be reduced. Osteopathy not only treats pain, but also helps to treat insomnia. This is also good for infants under 4 months. But this is not yet confirmed.
There will be positive impact on other systems of the body. It works on nervous, lymphatic and circulatory systems of the body. This helps the whole body to function properly. This can even bring internal improvements in the body.
