How does Osteopathy help the body to heal itself?
The body is often able to take care of itself, to compensate for injury. However, in some instances, the injury is greater than the body’s ability to adapt or heal. In other instances the body is not currently capable to regroup to be able to heal itself. This inability may be created by a number of reasons, and the injuries, sometimes even minor ones, start to create a problem.
In those cases, treatment is necessary to restore the balance within your body and assist your body to be able to use it natural reserves and strengths to heal itself.
Osteopathic treatments are based on enabling your body to function properly.
Basic principles of Osteopathy are:
Minor injuries may create a much bigger structural problems eventually if ignored. For example: if you walk in shoes that are too small. First, you are going to feel some slight discomfort, after 2-3 hours, you might start to limp, after 4-5 hours you might start experiencing back pain, and at the end of the day you would most likely feel exhausted, frustrated or irritable. And, it all started with shoes that were just slightly tight. Your family and friends probably would not notice your tight shoes but they would notice the way you walk and your facial expression.
In this case, it is very simple to remove the problem, as the pain will most likely disappear as you take your shoes off, but if you continue wearing them for a few days or months, some of the changes in your walking and posture and spine will start to set in, and it will be harder for the pain to disappear as you take your shoes off. Osteopathic medicine is very beneficial in correcting such issues.
