Osteopathic diagnosis and treatment in Guernsey
When we experience pain or injury, our bodies adapt to help us avoid further damage and carry on functioning. We may begin to move differently, adopt a different posture, and even think differently, all as a result of pain. Osteopathic diagnosis and treatment can firstly help you become aware of contributing factors to your symptoms and then help to reduce pain using a wide range of both passive and active techniques.
Injured tissues generally go through a natural healing process that doesn’t need to be interfered with. However, the healing process may be disturbed or delayed resulting in processes such as inflammation and tissue repair becoming excessive or inadequate. Well-timed intervention with relevant treatment can enhance the patients healing experience and reduce the potential of developing chronic pain and dysfunction.
