- Stiff back?
There is a lot of scientific research coming out right now about the sensation of stiffness in the back and what it means. What’s has been discovered is that FEELING stiff does not equate to BEING stiff. There is no link between feeling stiff in the back and a reduction in movement of the back, rather it is a sensation that we FEEL in order to protect an area…FEELING stiff is a protective response.
When you start to FEEL stiff, this is the best time to come and see your osteopath, rather than waiting until the pain really kicks in…LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. IT’S TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING! So many of my clients say the wished they’d come in earlier while their back pain was just a niggle, rather than leaving it until things got worse.
We can find out the source of your stiffness, figure out why your body is trying to protect itself, and sort things out for you so they don’t get worse.
