The benefits of osteopathy
Osteopathy reduces the stiffness in joints and increases joint mobility. So if you feel stiff or hear clicking noises from your joints, you will benefit greatly from seeing a good osteopath in London.
An osteopath relieves muscle tension and reduces muscular pain, whether that’s part of your rehabilitation from an injury, or you’re just tense from sitting in front of a computer for several hours every day. The physical manipulation also enhances the blood supply in your tissues and hence helps the body heal itself.
Osteopathy can also relieve stress and reduce the pain from headaches and migraines. Done over a period of time, it can reduce the number of migraine attacks significantly.
Pregnant women can also benefit from seeing an osteopath. They can help them prepare for an easier, less painful delivery and also help with back of pelvic pain during the pregnancy.
Finally, osteopathy can help significantly reduce baby reflux and baby colic, as well as constipation in babies.
