Melbourne, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/21/2015 -- Osteopathic services in Melbourne are a specialty at Premiere Sports & Spinal Medicine, providing a non-invasive and drug-free treatment for the musculoskeletal system. The hands-on, manual manipulation methods of an osteopathic clinician reduce pain, improve functionality, and aids in restoring mobility.
The body is a complicated, interconnected entity and pain or dysfunction in one part of the body can manifest in an entirely different location. Problems can arise from bone, muscle and nerve conditions and the practice's osteopath addresses pain and dysfunction through a whole body approach to identify the underlying cause and correct it instead of just treating the symptoms.
Osteopathic services address a multitude of conditions, from migraines and injuries sustained at work and during sports to pre- and post-natal pain. Those with arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia can find relief through osteopathic treatment. The hands-on treatments strengthen the body and correct biomechanical problems, along with those affecting the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems.
When people are in pain, they often compensate and try to find relief through improper and awkward movements. Over time, the behaviors cause further problems and exacerbate what may have been a relatively minor problem that could be easily remedied. It's a vicious cycle that causes inflammation and more pain.
Osteopathic treatment relieves inflammation, lessens pain, and reduces stresses on the body, providing it with an opportunity to heal itself. Treatment methods incorporate stretching, manipulation and mobilisation of joints and gentle pressure to improve circulation that works with the body' own abilities to heal itself.
Treatments have a variety of other benefits. It lowers blood pressure, improves sleep, stimulates the immune system, and helps in detoxification. An osteopathic practitioner can provide patients with lifestyle changes to alleviate pain and prevent problems in the future. Pain and dysfunction that isn't treated promptly can transition into chronic conditions that require a longer healing and treatment process.
