Muscle tension is very common these days and it can vary from a slight sense of tightness to agonising pain. Getting to the root cause of the tensions is paramount in providing long term relief, which more often than not requires more than a simple massage.
As each muscles job is to move your joints, it is easy to see that if the joint is not moving well then the muscle will have to work harder to achieve the same result, conversely if the muscle is tight then the joint itself will struggle to move freely. Your family osteopath will diagnose and treat these combined areas of tension and give you the tools for posture and exercise to help maintain your new restored sense of painless freedom and mobility. Many of our patients can not believe the difference in their sense of freedom when moving after a course of osteopathic treatment.
