Digestive conditions can often improve with hands on treatment and changes in lifestyle and diet.
It's commonly unknown that Osteopaths can help treat certain digestive conditions and extensive Osteopathic research has been conducted to discover the best treatment management.
It is important to underline that Osteopaths do not treat the condition itself rather the related symptoms. Your Osteopath can help with many different ailments. These can include diarrhoea and constipation to IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and gastric reflux.
We will identify which structures are not moving as well as what they could whether that be joints in your back, muscles or the digestion systems nerve supply (T5-L2).
It is also important to address the organs of digestion and their positioning. We are able to feel the mobility of the organs, their functioning, as well as the blood flow to and from these structures. This is all in an effort to optimize the environment for the body to take over and auto regulate itself like it normally would.
Furthermore, your Osteopath may ask you questions about your diet and lifestyle and record a food and exercise diary. This is as equally important as the hands-on physical treatment itself.
