Your Osteopath’s main aim is to reduce your pain and symptoms by addressing dysfunctional aspects of body structure. they look for and correct the cause of the problem with precisely executed treatments. Most people will feel great after an Osteopathic treatment, experiencing some amount of ‘release’ and pain relief in an area that may have given them pain for quite some time. Usually the treatment continues to work over a few days, which is why we will always encourage you to ‘take it easy’ and rest after a treatment to allow your body the necessary time to heal properly, even if you feel completely pain free.
It is not uncommon after any physical therapy, including Osteopathic care, to continue to experience some symptoms or even feel sore or tired. Sometimes the symptoms may become worse before they become better. Should you feel a bit sore after your treatment, this feeling should ease within a couple of days, as your body adjusts to the changes that have been made. If you feel concerned you should call and speak with your Osteopath. We will be able to tell you what to do or not to do that can help or decide if it is something that may need further attention.
The Osteopaths at OsteoEgypt, depending on your condition, may prescribe the use of heat pack, cold packs, stretches, exercises, rest, Nutritional Medicine or recommend pharmaceutical analgesic and anti-inflammatory medications to support the treatment.
