5 Reasons Why Osteopathy Is Safe For You

Do you have concerns about whether Osteopathy is safe for you?

If so, you are in the right place.

I can appreciate that trying a new type of treatment can be somewhat scary.

To help alleviate your apprehension today, I am going to talk about the 5 reasons why Osteopathy is safe for you.

Let’s jump straight in and talk about how osteopathy is safe for all ages.

1. Osteopathic Treatment Is Safe For All Ages

Osteopaths are taught how to treat people of all ages.

For example, osteopaths are taught how to modify osteopathic techniques for very young and elderly clients.

2. Osteopaths Are Taught When Certain Osteopathic Techniques Are Not Appropriate

Osteopaths are trained to know what types of osteopathic techniques are appropriate for specific conditions.

For example, certain types of osteopathic adjustments are not suitable for people with osteoporosis.

3. Osteopaths Are Taught When Osteopathy Is Not Appropriate

Osteopaths are also taught to recognize when no type of osteopathic treatment is appropriate. Certain conditions may present as muscle pain but are referred from a problem inside the body.

For example, side lower back pain radiating into the groin could be the result of a kidney stone.

4. Osteopathy Is A Gentle Treatment

Osteopaths use mostly gentle treatment techniques.

For example, many osteopaths use Cranial Osteopathy, which is exceptionally gentle.

5. Osteopathy Has No Negative Side Effects

Unlike, medication Osteopathy has no negative side effects.

Osteopathic treatment aims to help the body heal itself.

For example, manual osteopathy helps increase movement of joints which in turn will allow muscles to relax and return to normal function.
