Rounded shoulders, clicking, aches and pains… these are all common (and commonly ignored) signs that something’s not quite right, but when exactly should you get help?
Osteopathic treatments have the ability to help you to relax your body, improve the movement in your joints and muscles, plus encourage good circulation so it's easier for your body to repair itself.
Listen to your body and pay attention to what it needs. If you treat an issue before it worsens, you’ll be stopping it dead in its tracks and preventing yourself from having to endure unnecessary pain.
Here are 5 signs that it’s time to visit an osteopath:
Sign 1 – you've recently suffered a minor injury and it doesn’t seem to be improving, even several days afterward.
Sign 2 – your posture isn’t great, and you’re beginning to feel pains in your back and muscles that could be related.
Sign 3 – you have an ongoing or recurring pain that you regularly take pain medication for. Osteopathy looks at the relationship between how well your body could be working to how well it is actually working, removing your dependency on pain medications.
Sign 4 – you suffer from regular headaches and migraines that affect your quality of life. Gentle massage to the tight muscles and manipulation to loosen the joints of the neck, thorax and back can relieve the build-up of muscular tension that may lead to headaches.
Sign 5 - you’re a strong believer in prevention over cure. Osteopathy is a powerful tool that fixes issues with your joints or movements before they become a major problem!
