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 is the best you can get!! I went to see her after my scan showed my baby in breach position. Melinda put me at ease and the adjustments she made were totally pain free and relieved tightness in my back. Within 36 hours my baby turned… totally amazing. This may not work for everyone, but it’s worth a go … especially over the likely stress and pain that comes with the ECV hospital treatments.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service here. I came on the advice of a freind with a suspected frozen shoulder, which at the time was astonishingly painful. It turns out that it was likely a partially dislocated shoulder, and thanks to the brilliant analysis and help of Omer it is now on the mend. The help and advice was spot on, and I'll make a habit of coming with any muscular problem in the future.Put simply, if you have a problem this is the place to go. It is absolutely amazing.

My 8 month old daughter had treatment with Giulia at Fulham osteopath as she wasn’t meeting some milestones and we were a little concerned. Giulia was very welcoming and reassuring right from the beginning.When my daughter had her first treatment with Giulia, the next day she was able to meet that milestone as if nothing had happened, we were amazed at how quickly the treatment worked and we were really pleased to see that.Giulia recommended to have two more treatments for her and with those treatments things just got better for her in regards to meeting her milestones.We highly recommend Giulia for anyone who might be facing the same concerns for their little ones.

I have been treated by Verena Leo at Fulham Osteopaths in the last few months for a hip imbalance which causes complications such as trochanteric tendonitis and bursitis. But of course she looks at the skeleton as a whole. She has a very informed and gentle approach, which I like. She never rushes things, explains well and gives exercises to help further at home. I am pleased and have brought my teenage daughter, who has posture issues, to be treated by her too. Definitely recommended.

I have been intermittently using Fulham Osteopaths over the years and always had a really positive experience. Recently, Omer has been incredibly helpful, I went in due to an aching shoulder that had been bothering me for a couple of months, and not only has he really helped with that, but my recent sessions have made my whole back feel looser. I can feel the difference day to day and appreciate it enormously.
