What does Osteopathy treat?
Neck pain : This can appear after a traumatic event (car crash, a fall or from birth etc,), develop over Time or appear one day with no apparent reason.
Whiplash : after a car accident or traumatic falls, impacts etc. You can have symptoms like headaches, neck and shoulders pain or even lower back pain.
Headaches : A lot of headaches can have a mechanical, or tension related explanation and Osteopathy can help.
Shoulders pain : frozen shoulders, rotator cuff injuries, tightness around the shoulders, impingement…
Elbow, wrist and hands : Pain due to an unresolved trauma, sports injuries, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome….
Jaw aches : Limited jaw opening, pain in the ears, tinnitus, pain when chewing or talking…
Tinnitus : Little noises, hissing you one side or both sides of your head. It can be due to a lot of things like an issue with the jaw, neck muscles or joints…
Back pain : Sciatica, disc bulges or any lower back pain.
Digestive problems : Constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain… Osteopathy can help with a gentle visceral approach
Fatigue : Your body can be put under a lot of pressure during your everyday life and that can lead to a general fatigue. Osteopathic care can release the tensions you have built up and help relaxing.
Pelvic imbalance : This can cause pain in the hips, back, shoulder and other areas of the body that depend on an evenly balanced pelvis.
Post surgery : to reduce your recovery time and assist the bodys’ rebalancing.
Pregnancy : During pregnancy your body undergoes huge changes to accommodate the growing fetus. The extra weight creates a shift in your body’s centre of gravity. Your ligaments become softer.
These changes can lead to sciatica pain, symphysis pubic dysfunction, shortness of breath, hip pain…
Osteopathic care can restore and maintain normal pelvic alignment and mobility During the pregnancy but also after the birth.
Osteopathy can also help with chronic illness like :
Fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis… : with a gentle treatment we can help myofascial release to reduce stress put on the nervous system leading to pain in the tissues.
How Does Osteopathy Work?
All parts of the body function together in an integrated manner. If one part of the body is restricted, then the rest of the body must adapt and compensate for this, eventually leading to inflammation, pain, stiffness and other health conditions. When the body is free of restrictions in movement, Osteopathic treatment assists the body with pain reduction, reduced stress and greater mobility providing the body with the opportunity to heal itself.
Osteopaths use a broad range of gentle hands-on techniques including soft tissue stretching, deep tactile pressure, visceral and cranial techniques, mobilisation or manipulation of joints.
Osteopathy is a five-year university course, which includes a degree and masters qualification. Osteopaths believe in working as part of a health system of health providers and often refer back to the G.P. or another allied health professional where appropriate.
Osteopaths also deal regularly with patients who have been injured in the workplace, at home or while playing sports.
Studying Osteopathy has allowed me to understand the physiological connections within the human body and its relationship to performance.
About Jesús Arribas
Before I moved to live in Ireland I was working in Madrid where I worked with football players in “Club Atletico de Madrid”, evaluating and treating injuries applying techniques as osteopathic techniques, proprioception for sprains rehabilitation, sport massage, strength training, dry needling and taping.
Before this, I worked in a neurological centre where I was treating patients in all walks of life, young and elderly, for many sorts of problems, using techniques to release the soft tissues, strengthen and stretch muscles and joints to improve patient mobility such as manipulations, muscle energy techniques and mobilisations, to help decrease pain levels and improve body function. During this time, I also treated elderly with dementia, neurological disorders, and degeneration orthopaedic pathologies, educating patients and their families to prevent injury and disability and to lead healthy lifestyles.
“Highly skilled, expert knowledge in all issues affecting muscular and posture problems. Professional, Friendly, Solution orientated. Would highly recommend. Seasoned professional offering expert advice & treatment”.
I’d an old back injury from 8 yrs ago flair up, worse than ever over the past 2 months. I talked with Leonard Murphy who recommended Jesus, went to see him last week & he pinpointed the effected area immediately & relieved the pain. My back has improved immensely since then, while he also suggested 2 specific stretches that have helped loosen the effected area. Would certainly recommend anyone with back issues to give him a call.
