Osteopaths are often generalised as practitioners who only treat back problems. However, we at London Osteopathic Care are trained professionals that specialise in the treatment of the entire musculoskeletal system including; the joints, muscles, and the spine resulting in a positive effect on the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
This might be new knowledge for you, so here are 7 reasons to visit London Osteopathic Care.
1. The office chair
As if working for 8 hours a day isn’t enough, office chairs remain one of the main causes of back pain in the UK. Being glued to your chair all day puts 40% more pressure on your spine than standing, and maintaining a healthy posture in your chair is highly unlikely while your mind is focused on deadlines.
While you are confined to a chair your back muscles weaken from not being used. Your joints become inactive while losing lubrication, and your muscles age faster.
