Muscular pains and aching muscles are commonly associated with overuse, increased tension, or trauma from work-related activities, exercise or physical activity.
Injuries to muscle tissue can lead to the build-up of scar tissue, adhesions within the muscles and long term pain. Even the smallest amount of scar tissue can cause chronic pain and make muscles less elastic and more prone to re-injury. This is because it deals directly with the tissues that are causing discomfort without the use of pain-killing drug
Osteopathy can help as it involves the manipulation of the muscles, tendons and ligaments of a patient. This leads to the relaxation of tight muscles, improvement in circulation and the release of trapped ligaments and tendons.
The result? You will feel very relaxed, have increased neck and shoulder mobility and you can get on with your life without pain.
