Be it muscle pain, nerve pain, or joint pain, aches and pains can slow you down and stop you from doing the things you enjoy most.
While acute pain is often the result of trauma or injury, Osteopaths recognise that many chronic aches and pains are the symptoms of a dysfunctional musculoskeletal system- where you experience pain in an area not because those tissues are damaged, but because the tissues are under excessive or abnormal load due to other structures around it not performing their function correctly- stiff joints, tight or shortened muscles, asymmetrical movement patterns, or what you may refer to as poor ‘core stability’- these can all have an impact on chronic pain.
If you’re experiencing chronic pain, maybe it’s time to see an Osteopath?
At your first session, your Osteopath will ask you about the history of your problem to establish when and where the symptoms first started and how they may have changed over time, the treatments (if any) you have received to date, and the impact your pain may be having on your life.
After learning of the history of your pain, your Osteopath will carry out a hands-on examination, which comprises of various tests of the spine, nervous system, muscles and joints. Generally, none of these tests are painful, however if you are in acute pain, your Osteopath may ask you to demonstrate what positions and movements reproduce or exacerbate your pain.
After identifying the underlying cause/s your Osteopath will set some treatment goals, and provide targeted hands-on treatment- with the ultimate goal being to restore maximal, pain-free movement to your muscles and joints.
Back to Active Sports and Spinal Macquarie Park is open from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday. Call (02) 9888 9468 or book online.
