A lot of people suffer from obesity. It’s an ailment that is treatable. However, obesity due to its nature causes increased injury rates. The chances of injury during falls are greatly increased; sprains/strains can also happen a lot.
And fractures in the lower extremity due to the weight impact can have a devastating effect. Joint dislocations and inflammations can also happen.
And there are some people who are having trouble beating obesity. Just going on a diet does not solve the problem. Physical activities and better personal fitness are also very important.
The body must develop a better metabolism, better blood circulation and better oxygen intake in order to start losing significant amounts of weight.
Increasing blood circulation, reducing muscle and bone stress
An osteopath can help in all these areas. With gentle massages the muscles can be made more efficient, allowing blood to flow into the nerves thus increasing the overall blood circulation throughout the body.
And joints are manipulated to a wide range of motions creating more flexibility and reducing bone stress.
An osteopath can also provide better guidance on what physical activities to undertake. They can help develop a plan of exercises that will cause little strain to the joints preventing joint pains making the activities more enjoyable and tolerable.
Increasing physical activities and developing better metabolism
As more physical activity is being undertaken the body will start to develop a better metabolism. And with continued osteopathic treatments, the patient will start to develop more confidence.
Together with a good diet obesity will be slowly treated and eventually beaten. Osteopathy looks at the entire body as a whole system while employing techniques that do not require drugs or surgical procedures.
The treatments have very little or have no stress impact on the body but have a huge impact on its improvement.
