At SHRC, we use Osteopathy to observe the entire body and treat it holistically. Spinal blockages often cause muscle tension and head, shoulder and back pain. Vertebral blockages can, like stomach restrictions, lead to digestive disorders, heartburn, and bladder dysfunction.
Pelvic torsion causes menstrual and bladder dysfunction, whilst dizziness and tinnitus result from damage to the mobility of the skull. Symptoms often emerge on other parts of the body and are apparently independent of the dysfunction.
Manipulation uses measured movements of varying speed (slow to fast), force (gentle to forceful), and distances (called ‘amplitude’) to twist, pull, or push bones and joints into position. This can help loosen tight tissues around a joint, reduce pain in a joint and surrounding tissue, and help with flexibility and alignment.
