Osteopaths are seeing increasing amounts of children and adults suffering from the effects of stress. Children nowadays are under increasing pressures. Social, personal, school, sports, and social media are ever increasing pressures as our world seems to become more and more competitive and performance based. We see children from as young 7-8 who are suffering from a variety of symptoms, from anxiousness, hyperactivity, tummy upsets and headaches.
As adults we have all at some time experienced periods where we felt overwhelmed by the pressures of life and not knowing how we were going to get through this period at the time. It may work, financial, relationship, or family stresses, or, a combination of these which are overwhelming you. Over long periods this can lead to fatigue, burn out and even depression.
Getting those stress hormones reduced by relaxing tension in the body can help get you through those tough periods. It can also help recovery if you have become fatigued, or have had to turn to medical support due to the effects of longer-term stress. Osteopathic treatment which targets reducing tension through the neuroendocrine axis may be very effective at reducing tension and stress producing hormones in the body and helping overall wellbeing.
Cranial and Biodynamic Osteopathy as part of your recovery plan, along with good dietary advice, counselling support if needed, and regular exercise, can help support you as you look to regain your vitality and well-being again.
