Stress is a part of everyday life, with everyone having to face it one way or another. For many individuals, dealing with stress is a relatively straightforward process, but when stress is left unmanaged and allowed to grow it can begin to have a negative effect on both the mind and body.
OsteoLife provides personalised treatments in stress relief to Sydney patients who are finding that their stress is beginning to get in the way of their day to day lives.
We may all know what it is to feel stressed, but what are the common causes of these feelings? In short, stress is a state of imbalance, that is often heightened when we are faced with a situation we feel unable or unprepared to handle.
Stress can impact the way we perceive a given circumstance or problem, impairing our ability to properly reason through or understand the situation.
While it can perform differently for each individual, when left untreated stress can lead to mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression, as well as influence and dictate the emotions and behaviours of those suffering from it.
When we consider stress there are a number of obvious or stereotypical symptoms that we may think to look for, such as rapid breath, inability to relax or sit still or panicked and rambling speech. But in truth the symptoms of stress can reveal themselves in a number of different ways, and are both physical and mental.
While it can be difficult to clearly define if an individual is in need of stress relief, a common marker is whether or not a person feels an acute amount of discomfort or anxiety in a given situation, particularly one that does not impact others around them in the same way.
Osteopathy treatments may assist with the management of stress in a patient’s day to day life, and aims to prevent the stress from building to a point where it begins to negatively affect their health.
Osteopathic treatments focus on providing the patient with a more balanced state of wellbeing, and promotes the body’s own ability to heal and recover. It is this balance that provides patients with the methods and tools needed to better manage and control their stress, or to understand and realise the ways in which it may impact both their physical and mental health.
