Looking for Osteopathy consultations in Lisbon?

Do you live in Lisbon in an urban environment of stress and seek osteopathy to relieve any pain or discomfort? At Shift You we seek to help you manage stress and the multiple effects it has on health.

Osteopathy works in areas of the spine where the nervous system begins, encouraging its rebalancing. It also uses techniques that reduce muscle tension and some restrictions on the digestive and respiratory systems.

What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a non-invasive manual therapy that aims to restore lost mobility and provide balance to the musculoskeletal, craniosacral (all tissues that support and support the column from the head to the coxis) and visceral (organs).

Any change in the mobility of our body leads to disorders that can lead to the loss of functionality of certain parts of the body (loss of simple mobility such as tying shoes, reaching a high shelf, or other more complex ones) which, in turn, can give way to a more permanent illness or injury.

An Osteopath is not just focused on the problem area, he uses manual techniques to balance all systems and provide a sense of global well-being.

What is Osteopathy indicated for?

An osteopath’s intervention can help with back pain, headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction, digestion problems, postural problems or arthritis. It can also help to balance sleep cycles and the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

How is an Osteopathy appointment at Shift Care?

Assessment: the osteopath will address the patient’s health issues, listen and take notes if necessary. Subsequently, he performs a manual diagnostic examination to assess the health of tendons, ligaments and tissues.

Treatment: Treatment is done through manual techniques that aim to restore lost mobility and balance the musculoskeletal, craniosacral and visceral systems.

Post-treatment: Osteopathy places a lot of importance on self-healing of the body, so the osteopath can indicate suggestions for changes to the diet, exercises to do at home or changes in lifestyle.

Each consultation lasts 50 min and the number of treatments will depend on the case of each patient.

What are the benefits of osteopathy?

Osteopathy benefited both the musculoskeletal system, as well as the craniosacral and visceral systems. It has benefits in terms of sleep, since chronic pain often causes insomnia, and pain and discomfort cause difficulties in sleeping. It can also have a positive impact on the nervous, circulatory, lymphatic system and improve body functions and health in general.

Most people look for an osteopath when they are already in pain. However, it is not only possible, but advised to take a preventive approach to reduce pain and increase health and quality of life.
