Thus, the link between Medicine and Osteopathy are closer than one would think. A ‘whole body healthcare’, it focuses on using active and passive movement of tissues, bone and muscle, to enhance blood flow.

So what is the point of Anti-Inflammatory Medication?

These techniques aim to reduce inflammation by redirecting blood away from the area of pain. If used correctly, this type of medication can alleviate pain effectively.

It improves the dynamics of tissue healing by bringing nutrients to the relevant areas of the body, to enhance the healing process. My Opinion, both work well together.

Sciatica symptoms, which commonly involves pain down a leg, often due to some form of pressure on nerves, can be alleviated effectively by osteopathy near me. This is because the treatment incorporates articulation and mobilisation of the structures i.e. the spine and muscles, causing the compression.

However, the real question is, why are there symptoms in the first place?

Osteopathy for Neck and Lower Back Pain

It incorporates many different treatment techniques to treat neck and lower back pain. To name but a few, Functional Tissue Release (FTR), a active movement based technique, soft tissue mobilisation, similar to massage therapy and Myofascial Release Technique, aimed at working the body’s movement chains

affected by compensatory mechanical patterns created by improper sitting and sleeping postures, to release tension, alleviate pain and improvement mobility.

Oh, and let us not forget Spinal Manipulation too.

What about Sport Injuries?

A number of Professional Sport Clubs employ Osteopaths, especially in the more recent years as it has emerged as an essential part of the conditioning process, addressing strains and injuries following sporting activity.

The body naturally tries to heal following an injury, however where this process is slower than expected or not happening at all, it accelerates the healing process by improving the movement of soft tissue and joints that are injured in the first place thus, aiding the body’s natural capacity to repair.
