Suffer No More from Sinus Issues And Allow Our Services on Osteopathy for Congestion To Help You
The majority of patients see osteopaths for musculoskeletal aches and pains. And an osteopath is probably not the first practitioner that comes to mind when you have sinus problems, which is a shame because osteopathic treatment could be exactly what you need if you have sinus congestion, sinus infections, or sinusitis. This includes acute (sudden, short-term) conditions and chronic (long-term) conditions such as allergies and asthma.
If you live in or near Fulham, you can drop by La Dolce Studio and allow us to relieve your congestion through our Osteopathy services.

What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a non-invasive, drug-free manual therapy that aims to improve overall health by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.
An osteopath will concentrate on the joints, muscles, and spine. The treatment aims to improve the body's nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
Osteopathy is a form of complementary medicine. It is used in conjunction with conventional treatment to improve health. On the other hand, Osteopathic physicians are also medical doctors (MDs) and have more training than other complementary therapists, such as naturopaths. They are experts in Osteopathy.
Osteopathy is one of the fastest-growing healthcare professions. In fact, in the United Kingdom, there are currently more than 5000 osteopaths.
How Does Osteopathy For Congestion Work
Before knowing how Osteopathy can help relieve congestion, let's first know what happens when a person experiences sinus issues.
The sinuses are four air-filled chambers located above your eyes in the frontal bones, behind the upper nose, behind your eyes in the sphenoid bones, and in your cheekbones. They aim to moisten the air as it travels to the lungs and trap bacteria in the mucus produced by the lymphatic membranes. These bacteria are then removed from the sinuses by swallowing or pushing the mucus out of the nasal cavity.
When sinusitis occurs, the mucus drainage passages become congested, and the sinuses' membranes become inflamed. This can manifest as facial pain/swelling, headaches, a blocked nose, a feeling of heaviness or pressure in the face, yellow/green mucus from the nose, or a persistent cough.
Now, how does Osteopathy help?
By taking a holistic approach, Osteopathy can provide a complementary treatment to your sinus management. Working on the face, sinuses, neck, jaw, and upper back may be part of the hands-on treatment. Treating these areas can help reduce overall tension, which can aggravate sinusitis.
This treatment aims to improve fluid and lymphatic drainage, reduce headache pain, and make breathing easier.
Moreover, Osteopathic physicians who use cranial manipulation as part of their OMT diagnose suture restrictions and decreased motion of the head bones' rhythm. Then, they will work gently to release the compressed sutures, restoring normal motion to the bones of the head and allowing for the necessary plunger-like activity.
The ability to plunge allows the sinuses to drain, increases blood flow, and activates the body's healing mechanisms, resulting in a shorter healing time. This is only a small part of what osteopathic doctors diagnose and treat for sinus congestion.
Other factors considered and treated for sinus congestion include venous and lymphatic congestion in the head, the tension of the trigeminal nerve, which innervates the sinuses, rib cage restrictions, and others.

Osteopathy for Migraines
Birth is a significant occasion for both the baby and the mother. During pregnancy and delivery, babies are subjected to various forces and stressors. Despite their soft and adaptable bodies, they are vulnerable to mechanical strains from a difficult birth.
Because of falls, illnesses, bumps, and growth spurts, babies of all ages are prone to strains and alignment issues in their bodies.
Our Osteopaths at La Dolce Studio work hard to realign their clients' bodies to keep them pain-free and balanced and to ensure optimal physical function as they grow.
Osteopathy for Infants
Scoliosis is more of a description than a precise medical diagnosis due to the wide range of its causes. Idiopathic scoliosis refers to cases of illness in which the cause is frequently unknown. The curvature of the spine is usually mild and does not necessitate extensive therapy.
One of the many therapies used at La Dolce is Osteopathy, which emphasises the importance of the musculoskeletal system in the development of a patient's health.
