Only the best for your bones

I’m sure you’re aware that everything in the body is connected. You’ve probably even heard that a foot massage can alleviate headaches! It might sound silly but the slightest ache can affect your whole body. No wonder intense pain from a tooth ache can be felt all throughout your body. This makes it that much more important to properly care for any aches and pains we feel. Especially pain from bones and muscles.

When there is pain in your muscles and joints it could be caused by a number of factors which may include age related factors such as arthritis, injury from exercise to knees, ankles, shoulders and lower back, poor posture related complaints such as neck and shoulder tightness and headaches, and other conditions such as disc bulges, sciatica and more. That’s why most people who visit manual therapists such as osteopaths to help their symptoms have a lot of relief!

The Skeletal Secrets

Our body is an amazing machine, and when it comes to pain in the musculoskeletal system, it may be hard to decipher what the problem is if the practitioner is not properly trained. Sometimes you don’t know where exactly the ache is coming from. In cases like this, it’s always best to seek advice from your health care practitioner and/or your GP.

Any Age is Welcome

Complaints from with our musculoskeletal system can really occur at any age. Young children, babies, elderly, athletes, pregnant women, office workers and just your everyday person all have been known to present with or experience musculoskeletal complaints and or/pain. When it comes to pain , the experience of your practitioner is of utmost importance. If you are in Melbourne and looking for something local, St Kilda Osteopathy has a team of highly experienced osteopaths who can help anyone of any age.

Customized Treatments Just for You

Your complaint and pain will be unique to you - and your body. Musculoskeletal pains are different per person and the treatment can vary slightly. In an osteopathic clinic, your osteopath will tailor a treatment and management plan specific to you and your complaint. You want to make sure that the person treating you knows exactly what to do. The treatments aren’t one size fits all because that rarely happens. Our bodies respond differently to certain treatments and the osteopaths will anticipate that.
Musculoskeletal pain shouldn’t be taken lightly. While you might feel a joint pain now and then, whenever the aches stay too long then it’s time to go to see what may be causing it. But, not all clinics are created equally. When it comes to your body, don’t risk going to someone new but go to a place that’s established and also well-known instead.
