Osteopathy Treatments for Poor Circulation
If you’re experiencing frequent poor circulation and it’s hampering your health, then don’t worry because Osteopathy may be able to help! Bad circulation is a problem for people everywhere, especially if someone leads a relatively sedentary or unhealthy lifestyle.
Osteopathy follows the principle that the human body already consists of everything it needs to improve its mental and physical health. This involves a healthy flow of blood to all parts of the body, proper circulation of fluids, receiving the right nutrients, digestion, and breathing. However, our bodies are prone to wear and tear. Read below how we can help you if you suspect you have poor circulation.
Poor circulation mainly expresses itself through the body’s extremities like arms, hands and legs, ankles and feet. Some common symptoms that your body may experience due to impaired circulation are:
- Cramping muscles after staying in one place for too long
- Change in body temperature
Poor circulation is not just a concurring problem with medical conditions, but it can also result from getting older. As our bodies grow old, our body’s overall constitution, blood vessels, body functions, joint muscles, and musculoskeletal framework weaken, making us more vulnerable to illnesses.
Problems associated with ageing often target tissues and nerves. Damaged soft tissue, connective tissue and nerves can lead to impaired circulation.
Furthermore, the body can lose its ability to regulate blood flow due to several reasons. Some of them are:
- Stress, anxiety, and other mental health disorders
- Trauma or weak spots due to surgery
- Continuous poor posture and lifestyle
- Conditions like diabetes, obesity, etc
- Prolonged physical inactivity
The human body often tends to collect tension in different points and muscles. Osteopathy pushes this tension to be released, which allows your bodily functions to restore its own energy.
Osteopathy is built around the belief that the human body contains self-healing nutrients and can regulate pain if given enough time to heal the injury. But this requires a healthy flow of oxygen, blood, and nutrients to the whole body. These substances sustain the organs to function and provide energy throughout the human body.
However, if this process experiences a block, then our body is prone to adapt. Over time the body may not be able to adapt enough, or these adaptions prevent the body to operate efficiently. As a result, your body becomes more susceptible to injuries.
Osteopathy aims to restore balance by working to assist the bodies circulation. A consultation where our osteopaths physically examine and assess you will evaluate osteopathy treatments for poor circulation. They would aim to figure out where the problem is located, the causes, and how to potentially reduce pain and improve the physical aspect of your life using precise techniques.
This is done via osteopathic treatments for poor circulation, such as:
- Using lymphatic drainage techniques
- Massage and manipulation of the muscles
- Gentle joint mobilisations through a differing range of degrees
- Dry needling
