Osteopathy can be used in the management of an array of symptoms as it takes a holistic approach, treating the body as a whole therefore helping to promote better overall wellbeing rather than targeting specific symptoms individually.


Menstrual pain


Recent studies have shown that osteopathy can be beneficial in the management of period pain. Generally period pain occurs as a result of the contraction of the uterus to shed the uterine lining. As the womb contracts, blood vessels are compressed and this reduces blood and oxygen supply to the uterus, resulting in the release of chemicals that cause pain, cramping and discomfort, as well as many other symptoms which are experienced during menstruation. Our osteopath in Chalfont will carry out specialised massage techniques which are designed for increasing blood flow to the uterus, helping to reduce pain and discomfort. Massage techniques will also help induce the release of endorphins, serotonin and dopamine hormones, helping to reduce anxiety and tension which may be associated with period pain, allowing you to feel more relaxed with a better sense of overall wellbeing.


Headaches and migraines


A significant percentage of the adult population is affected by headaches from time to time which may hinder daily activities and have a detrimental impact on day-to-day life. There are different types of headaches and symptoms can vary from patient to patient, as well as intensity. Analgesics or painkillers are commonly used in the treatment of headaches, but if you are looking for a non-invasive and natural alternative for addressing your headache or migraine, or if conventional medication is insufficient for your needs, then speak to our osteopath in Chalfont and find out about how osteopathy can help manage your symptoms more effectively.
