It’s easy for life to get on top of you… Life has a way of throwing challenges our way, from work, bills, paying the mortgage or rent, staying social, washing, cleaning and shopping, there are so many things we have to contend with. On top of all that there’s keeping yourself healthy through good eating, exercise and sleep habits so finding a balance is key to leading an enjoyable life every day, and not just living for the weekend.
Your Osteopath Can Help
One of the most common reasons a person will choose to visit an osteopath is to seek treatment for an injury and reduce pain. Have you noticed how everything in life gets harder when you are in pain? Going to work, caring for your children or elderly relatives, or just doing the daily chores are always more difficult when the number one thing on your mind is PAIN!
Pain can be the result of a trauma or injury, or it can creep up over time due to postural strains from the work and habits we carry out each day. Of course, there are always more complex reasons why a person experiences pain too, including having a particular medical condition or disease. However, many of us live with pain unnecessarily.
Our bodies are amazing machines that tolerate a great deal of stress that modern life throws at them. But there is always a critical moment the body will start to fight back. One of the early signs the body is fighting back is pain. It’s a warning signal that all is not well. It is at this point that we urge you to seek help (call us now if you need to!), so that the problem can be resolved quickly and efficiently. Many people ignore pain for a long time, and then they reach the moment where the body has to give out and the warning signal spikes… the pain gets worse. Suddenly they need time off work and require the grandparents to step in to help out with the kids.
So, we ask you the question… Is it worth putting up with? We appreciate treatment costs money, time and effort, but we truly believe it is worth every cent, minute and ounce of effort that you put in. Don’t choose to live with pain each day… The team at Body@Boronia in Melbourne’s Eastern Suburbs are here to help you find that life balance. Osteopaths go through a rigorous university degree and are well-trained to help you reach your goal. We educate you on ways you can improve your day-to-day life to be healthier, and become proactive in the management of your aches and pains and so much more.
Other Ways We Can Help
It is worth noting that osteopaths are holistic therapists. This means we look at a person’s whole life situation to ensure we get to the root cause of their issue. You may come to us looking for help with pain or an injury, but it is our job to breakdown each aspect of your life and work out what needs tweaking. We offer our patients advice on many other areas of daily living other than just bodily movement and pain management strategies. These include:
- Diet and nutrition
- Sleep habits
- Stress management and relaxation techniques
- Work-related advice including office desk set-up
We are also trained to notice when you may require the help from a different practitioner, such as a GP, psychologist, or exercise physiologist. We’re able to put you in touch with the right people, should your requirements of treatment fall outside of our scope of practice. In other words, we have you covered from start to finish!
