When you choose Osteopathy treatment at Well Balanced Healthcare, you are choosing the most respected of Mosman Osteopathy services.
Most of us will experience some physical injury in the course of our lifetime, whether it’s childhood fractures and falls, sports injuries or work injuries. Accumulated joint damage, repetitive stress injuries, structural loads from childbearing, arthritis or thinning bones all increase the risk of pain and injury as we age.
Osteopaths are highly trained in musculoskeletal health and in the assessment and treatment of physical injuries.
How does Osteopathy work?
The basis of osteopathic treatment is to restore normal structure and function to your body tissues, improve mobility and normalise blood flow and nerve impulses. It can be effectively used throughout the body. When the bones, joints and muscles are working smoothly and in harmony, then your body functions at its best.
Osteopaths use functional movements of the joints, stretching and counterstretching of muscles, deep tissue massage, trigger point stimulation and gentle manipulation techniques to release tightness, tension and pain from your body.
These techniques may also restore the healthy structure of your musculoskeletal system which means you can live and work with less pain and even help prevent future injury.
There is … some evidence that patients who receive osteopathic treatments experience a degree of pain relief more quickly, and use fewer medications less often.
