Back pain, joint aches, headaches, and migraines: life can be painful.
If you experience any of these conditions, you know how difficult it is to be physically active. Your quality of life suffers as you’re forced to sit around.
Osteopathy treatment has the potential to change that. Imagine having less pain and a healthier body.
What exactly is osteopathy? This treatment takes on many forms, from medicine to physical therapy. The condition of the lymphatic, circulatory, and nervous systems and the spine, muscles, and joints improves over time.
This treatment can reduce the effects of many medical conditions, among them tendonitis, asthma, degenerative joint disease, fibromyalgia, and arthritis.
Curious about this treatment? Here are five compelling reasons to consider osteopathy.
Do you wake up every morning riddled with pain?
You probably suffer through a day of work, not because you want to, but because you have to. You come home and do as little as possible until bedtime.
Then you go to sleep and wake up the next day to do it all over again.
Does this sound like your life?
You can’t exercise anymore. Walking anywhere is difficult. Your friends and family invite you out to do things, but you can never go.
How do you feel? Probably increasingly isolated. Maybe even trapped and helpless.
Sitting and watching the world go by is starting to damage your mental state.
If you’re feeling depressed because of your forced sedentary lifestyle, you don’t have to be. With osteopathy, you can target the muscle, spine, and joint pain that is disrupting your life.
Creaky joints, swollen muscles, a stiff back: it’s no wonder you don’t want to move.
Your whole body hurts just getting up to get a drink of water or go to the bathroom.
What can do you do about it, though?
As you undergo osteopathy treatment, you’ll notice a surprising change. You can walk without pain. You might even be able to jog or dance or exercise at the gym.
Your mobility has also returned. You can stretch your limbs with less pain.
In short, you feel like you can live again.
Do you take medication for your chronic pain?
You probably do. Maybe even several.
However, these have side effects. Maybe you feel tired all the time. You may never feel hungry or you may always be ravenous.
You couldn’t imagine stopping your medication regimen, but you sure do hate those side effects.
With osteopathy, the medical professionals you work with will try natural treatments first. If your body doesn’t respond to these, only then the doctor suggest medication.
Imagine having a chance to be in less pain without medication. That’s a huge change.
You toss and turn, hoping you can just find a way to get comfortable.
Eventually, exhaustion takes over and you drift off to sleep.
Then you wake up because your back hurts or your joints ache. You get up and stretch. You might get a drink of water then try to sleep again.
Is this what every night is like for you?
You really miss a good night’s sleep. You can’t remember the last time you slept through the night without waking up in severe pain.
Once you start treatment, your pain levels will drop. You’ll find you’ll get more restful, restorative sleep.
The pain is bad, but there’s one thing that’s worse.
You know what it is. It’s that lingering worry in the back of your mind that you’re going to need surgery.
How does that make you feel?
Probably scared and anxious. Going under the knife is a big deal. However, you’re at your wit’s end with this pain.
With osteopathic treatment, you may be able to avoid surgery. You could finally stop stressing about a procedure and enjoy life with less pain.
