Common Causes Of Anxiety & Stress

Many people describe themselves as stressed, and a lot of evidence points to health problems from skin issues to pain. The main causes include:
A traumatic event, like a personal or work crisis
Just too much to cope with, so you can’t face things
Life events like moving house
Financial and work related worries

Anxiety & Stress Explained In Plain English

Stress is simply where we can’t cope with what is in our life, both psychologically and physically - but of course these two are linked.  Stress affects every aspect of our lives, and even if we just get on with it eventually it catches up with us.

Stress is a personal thing and not always obvious. It makes us prone to physical aches, pains and minor illnesses, and our mood and outlook.

There are lots of self help approaches to stress, but sometimes the problem seems stuck. 

Untreated, Stress can lead to more severe problems like panic attacks and all sorts of stress related problems with breathing, the heart and digestion.

What Are The Major Causes Of Stress

Stress comes from three things:

  • How much is on our plate
  • How serious those things are
  • What that means to us

Total load

Many people have so much going on. Work, family, relationships, illness, financial worries, and children. There comes a point where we just can’t cope with it all, and we start to underperform or reach crisis point

Life Events

Some things are very important when it comes to stress. Moving house is near the top of the list! But so is pain, ill children and elderly relatives - the list is long.

Our Personal Resilience

Sometimes even in the face of minor issues we somehow can’t stay on top. That may be because of levels of exhaustion, masked by adrenaline and our desire to keep going. Often the most hard working and most conscientious people suffer the most.This can lead to exhaustion and long term trouble like Long Covid, Chronic Fatigue etc.

Pain & Disability

Pain registers as an emergency to our system, turning on fight or flight. We burn energy, till there's none left…

And disability is frustrating, annoying, and stops you getting on with things.

How Does An Osteopath Treat Stress?

An Osteopath will only use their hands and brain to skilfully and logically assess your symptoms. We train for many years to feel what is normal and what is in trouble, and Osteopathy is a fantastic method for getting your body and mind back in tip-top shape again.

We don’t use machines or ask you to do endless exercises that you find difficult and don’t help. We just get your body working properly by relaxing everything, aligning everything, and getting the parts talking to each other. Treatment is typically very gentle and relaxing.

Healing comes naturally without drugs or surgery. There is a lot of energy wasted with physical tension, and profoundly relaxing Cranial Osteopathy is very effective at breaking stress cycles. The body relaxes, we have more energy, we can cope, we feel better, we exercise - and so we get better instead of worse.

This means you can be better in a truly natural way, by in the end the miracle of your body healing itself.

And here's the best bit... By fixing the root cause of your problems, frequently people find that related issues that are connected also show great improvement, so you get help with all sorts of issues you didn’t even realise were connected.

Osteopath Reviews 

From clients benefiting from a better quality life

Melinda goes above and beyond and I feel very lucky to have met her. She has been treating my son for the last 10 months. After each session, we notice big improvements as Melinda helps him being more comfortable within his body in order to achieve his next developmental milestone. Melinda leverages her knowledge and experience to adapt to her patients needs, treating a baby isn’t easy but she always finds a way. Plus she always makes sure I understand how she is working with my son and share with me some things that we can do at home in between the sessions. Her kindness is just the cherry on the cake :)

I strongly recommend Fulham Osteopaths. Senior Osteopath Verena treated both myself and my newborn shortly after birth. We were both treated very gently and attentively and we both left feeling a lot better- my hip pain disappeared and babies tensions from birth were released. Thank you Verena! 🙏

We’ve been working with Verena to help with some long term covid issues and she has been wonderful. Very caring and thorough and puts us at complete ease with her thoughtful demeanour. She really listens and always responds with new suggestions to help improve the situation.

We chose to go to an osteopath after our little one suffered from reflux as well being an unstable lie during pregnancy, so he was very tense with an uncomfortable posture. After the first session with Katie along with myself and my husband doing the exercises given by Katie in between, we noticed a huge difference, we now have a very happy baby. We could not recommend Katie enough. She put us at ease and explained everything. We will definitely go back to Katie should we have any issues in the future.

Verena is amazing. The hip pain and pelvic floor dysfunction I had been working on with a physiotherapist for over a year was relieved almost immediately! I have hEDS and particularly recommend her for those with hypermobility also.

I went to visit Elyse, practically unable to walk. The pain in my knee was unbearable and couldn’t take weight and it felt like I’d done some irreparable damage. Within an hour - she had fixed me and given me some brilliant but short and easy exercises. I can’t recommend her enough

I visited Fulham Osteopaths for a treatment as entering my 3rd trimester of pregnancy has caused me some signifiant back stiffness. I was lucky enough to be treated by Melinda, the owner. I love the passion and nurturing approach she has and the focus on a holistic and natural side of treatment. It felt like she directed my body to find the balance and solve the issues. Instant improvement! I can highly recommend the place. The passion for improving people's lives and high quality customer service is visible from the moment you enter the place. Highly, highly recommended!
