All you need to know about Mighty Magnesium

Studies show that the best way to absorb magnesium is through the skin (transdermally, for those of us who are scientifically minded.) Basically, if you can find a way to get magnesium onto your skin, you’ve got a better chance of absorbing more of the good stuff.

Headaches

Many of us experience headaches from time to time.

Yet often at peak times of stress in our lives – like tight deadlines at work – they can be impossible to shift for days and even weeks at a time. These tension-type headaches can be incredibly debilitating and limit our ability to function properly in our day-to-day lives.

The most common type of a headache originates from tension, muscle stiffness or joint woman-whiplash-chinese-medicinestrain in the neck and upper thoracic region.

Other causes include:

  • eye strain
  • sinus congestion
  • whiplash injury
  • stress
  • poor posture
  • jaw imbalance and teeth grinding
  • infection
  • allergies and food intolerances.

What can an Osteopath do to help you?

Whilst patient responses to osteopathic treatment can vary from patient to patient – due to patient sensitivity to treatment and other lifestyle contributing factors – many people experience positive outcomes after osteopathic treatment.

Depending on your presentation an osteopath may do one or multiple of the following things:

  • work on your general mobility
  • improve the mobility of your ribs and thoracic and cervical spine
  • investigate muscular tension, nerve compression and inflammation
  • advice on posture, exercise and stretching to help prevent a recurrence of symptoms
  • offer guidance on diet and preventing dehydration
  • advise on improving the ergonomics of your home or workplace.
