« To work well you have to be well »
Nowadays, no one ever really escapes from stress; we all experience it from time to time and in varying degrees. Whatever it is our profession, being “static” in an office or not, practicing a “physical” activity or educating our children: we are confronted with stress. The stress can influence not just our mental wellbeing but also our physical wellbeing and manifest in our body with, musculoskeletal disorders, such as neck and shoulder pain, low back pain, lumbago, back pain, sciatica, torticollis, migraines, headaches T.M.A. (jaws), digestive disorders, gastric reflux, menstrual cycle disorders and painful periods in women. The “traumas” of our life originates from our (bad) “posture” and consequently, “stress” accumulates into our body.
Our body has this incredible ability to adapt and compensate. Sometimes we get overwhelmed by a “very small thing”, then another one and one more… and eventually, it’s “too much” and the “decompensation” arrives (a migraine, a lumbago… a burn out!). The osteopath is there to listen to you, to understand your needs, your pains and frame them in your daily routine. The objective will be to identify which grain of sand has destabilized your balance, in order to give you a “new lease of life” and thus help you to achieve homeostasis. The objective is to restore your well-being.
Whether you are a top-level athlete or an occasional athlete, preventing injuries through osteopathic follow-up is essential to maintain physical health and optimize your performance.

It is essential to act! The most important thing is to be present, to become aware of the magnificent journey made so far and then to gain in well-being through a personalized follow-up proposed by your osteopath so that you can continue your journey. In such an approach, osteopathy proves to be an essential ally to accompany you and relieve these pains due to time.
