Muscles and tendons can become painful for many reasons. One of the most common causes is when the body experiences an unusually high amount of exertion where the muscles have struggled to cope with a high level of activity. Stiffness will normally occur a couple of days after the activity. Also muscles and tendons can become painful due to injury, trauma, inflammation or just poor posture.
If you are experiencing prolonged muscle or tendon pain then we can assess the problem and provide treatment directly to the tissues that are causing discomfort as well as identifying any underlying maintaining or predisposing factors. A normal treatment may involve manipulating the muscles, ligaments and tendons involved to help increase blood flow to the area, thus promoting the tissue healing process and relax tight muscles.
Muscle and ligament pain conditions respond particularly well to osteopathy.
