IBS and Osteopathy Treatment

Irritable bowel syndrome and osteopathy treatment at chirocure clinic in StKilda and Dromana, Melbourne.

Have you ever had stomach pains after a discussion, after an important call or after an unexpected event?
How many times have you had diarrhoea before an exam, an interview or a particularly busy working day?

This condition is called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), and it is much more common than you might think.

Symptoms are stomach aches, cramps, diarrhoea and/or constipation (often alternating), bloating and flatulence.

It is usually triggered by an increasingly common and present element in. all our lives, and which unfortunately can come in many forms: stress.

Stress is also responsible for low back pain, headaches, jaw pain and heartburn.

What can the osteopath do about it?
Osteopathic treatment is effective in relieving inflamed and pain-causing structures, particularly visceral treatment for IBS to contain pain and possibly regularise evacuation.

Furthermore, removing the causes of musculoskeletal and visceral pain allows the body to better absorb the stress loads that come with daily challenges.

The healthier and better prepared the body is, the easier it will be to maintain the benefits of the treatment and better cope with tomorrow.
