frequently asked Questions
Should we be afraid of side effects following a session?
This depends on the reason for the consultation, but in general, restoring a new balance to the human body can lead to a certain disorder, mechanical and chemical. Side effects following an osteopathy session vary from person to person.Being manipulated for about 30 to 45 minutes can lead to aches and pains (the duration of which will not exceed 2 to 3 days), a feeling of general fatigue, consequent to the loss of a certain energy. On the other hand, you eliminate toxins that were accumulated before the visit to the osteopath, that is why you have to drink a lot in the days following a session, in order to drain these toxins; prefer mineralized water such as Contrex or Hepar, which are highly mineralized and have greater drainage properties.However, a feeling of lightness, greater flexibility in movement and sometimes the feeling of “flying” are often described by patients in the hours following the session.
I am apprehensive about joint crack, is it necessary?
No, not at all. If you do not want a “cracking”, you should report it to your osteopath, who will then undertake a treatment composed of softer techniques, called soft, whose aim will also be to inform the tissues by giving them some flexibility, as well as better joint mobility. It seems that the so-called thrust techniques, with “cracking”, allow the body to hold longer in its new balance.
Why is back pain the “evil of the century”?
Many experts have made several hypotheses, the causes being various and varied, such as poor postures at work, during the night, but also poor lifestyle (food, environment), stress, the body being constantly “tracked” by two opposing forces that are gravity and reaction to the ground.It would also seem that too much effort is being made from an early age, during childhood and adolescence, to actually optimize good growth, but the consequences are detrimental. The act of playing sport intensively and regularly from an early age (especially at a high level, for a possible sporting career), until the age of young adult, and then abruptly stopping these activities (because new responsibilities are presented to us in the world of work, and we are forced to reduce or even stop all activity) , would result in weakening of the human body, muscle melting and unstable joints.
So advocate during the growing period of sports sessions at regular intervals
(Once a week is enough, you can alternate with other more fun activities such as music, theatre…) to reach the end of life to a greater capacity for effort (“exponential evolution”), which would make more sense and benefit our body…
