Osteopathy for Digestion Problems

Osteopathy is the practise of detecting, treating and supressing health problems through movement, massages and stretching of the muscles and joints. It can treat many medical issues, most commonly arthritis, headaches and backpain. But some people may be surprised to hear that it can also be an effective treatment for digestive discomfort.

What are Digestion Problems?

Digestion problems are common amongst people of all ages, but unfortunately many choose to mask these concerns rather than finding the direct cause and an effective solution. Digestive issues can be caused by many different factors, including our diet, stress levels and general lifestyle, leading to great discomfort such as:

How Can Osteopathy Help?

The musculoskeletal system can be a key source to many digestive troubles, such as restricted spinal joints or organs, tense abdominal muscles and interrupted nerve or blood supplies. These types of complications can often be provoked by falls, pregnancy, abdominal surgery or suffering and trauma to the ribs, pelvis and back.

Osteopathic practices will target any muscle, organ and joint imbalances found. It will focus on rebalancing your nerve and blood supplies and restoring joint and organ functions to diminish digestive symptoms.

There are a variety of treatments that patients can undergo to help treat this issue, but all are dependent on where the problem is coming from. Therefore, each treatment is tailored to each individual’s needs, as digestion covers a lot of areas.
