Whether you work in an office, as a tradesperson or travel for work, your body has different stresses and strains to deal with, which can be frustrating and painful. Osteopathic treatment aims help with occupational stresses and strain by helping to release restrictions and restore range of movement to help your body to function and move more freely.
Emotional stress from work can also cause pain, as it often will manifest itself as physical changes in the body such as increased muscle tension, postural issues and breathing problems. Identifying emotional stress and developing strategies to deal with it is important for long term health and wellbeing. Treatment for occupational stresses and strains may include addressing joint restrictions, massage, stretching and exercises.
Different types of work can have different effects on the body.
