Thank you for attending Melbourne Osteopathic Clinic- Here is a quick summary on what you may expect post osteopathic treatment
Osteopathic treatment is a form of manual therapy that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and aims to improve overall body function. While every patient may have a unique response to osteopathic treatment, there are some common effects that one can expect in the 24-48 hours following treatment.
Firstly, it is common to feel soreness or stiffness in the treated areas. This is due to the manipulation and stretching of muscles, ligaments, and joints during the treatment. However, this soreness should typically subside within a day or two, leaving the patient feeling more relaxed and pain-free.
Another common effect is a sense of increased energy and improved mobility. Patients may notice that they can move more freely and without discomfort after osteopathic treatment. This is because the treatment helps to improve blood flow and reduce inflammation, which can relieve pain and stiffness.
Overall, the effects of osteopathic treatment will vary depending on the individual and the nature of their condition. However, most patients can expect to feel some level of relief and increased comfort in the 24-48 hours following treatment.
Generally we recommend that you take it easy, stay nice and hydrated and focus on gentle movement and stretching of the affected area,
