Lin Bridgeford’s Osteopathy Tips
Seeking help for injuries when they happen as well as regular Maintenance Osteopathic Treatment even when you feel quite well, can help you potentially avoid bigger problems, remain as active as possible, and retain your ‘vim and vigour’ throughout your life.
Dealing with abuse
The body is a magnificently intelligent ‘machine’ that is able to withstand a certain amount of abuse without apparent problems. This enables us to continue to function in a relatively normal manner even when our bodies are being compromised.
When we have a minor injury the body compensates by moving or holding itself slightly differently to avoid pain and discomfort and within a few days we feel apparently better.
Due to the body’s ability to do this, we are often unaware of some of the issues until we start having aches and pains for no apparent reason. A build-up of various compensations over time can become too much and the body starts to give us symptoms as it loses its ability to compensate so well.
We often call this ‘ageing’, and whilst things do change as we age, I see many people who feel old before their time because they are carrying around too many compensations for injuries that have been left untreated.
By helping the body to correct and balance itself after injury and illness, we can create more room for compensation when needed and more possibility to feel vital, which should be our natural state.
