What we can do to help patients who suffer from IBS?

Abdominal pain, constipation and diarrhea are all typical symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Although IBS is not dangerous, the symptoms can be very painful and bothersome. Most people who have IBS have a mild form, which they can cope with quite well without getting any treatment. But sometimes the symptoms are so strong that they significantly affect people’s everyday lives and can cause distress. 

Osteopathy improves the severity of IBS symptoms and its impact on quality of life at the beginning of the treatment, and significantly after 6 months of treatment.

This publication of November 2014 showed that patients with irritable Bowel syndrome can improve their quality of life, using visceral manipulations.

Your treatment with Marguin Osteopath

At MARGUIN OSTEOPATH  we will take a detailed history and perform clinical tests including osteopathic palpation to evaluate the state of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.  Taking under consideration your lifestyle and general condition, your osteopath will perform a treatment that will be individualised to address your specific symptoms as well as any underlying imbalances to minimise and eliminate your discomfort.

If, according to the information given, you need to be referred to further specialists or need to perform complementary exams, your osteopath will write you a referral letter and offer a range of gentle treatments such as energy techniques, cranial techniques or neuromuscular techniques to help you decrease your symptoms. 

Once we understand what causes the symptoms and what are the underlying contributing factors, we will work together to put a manageable regime (stretching, rebalancing and strengthening) in place.

The potential side effects of an osteopathy treatment are the following : fatigue for a few days, in case of inflammation you can feel some joints pain and sore muscles.
