Osteopathy and The Vicious Circle of Pain

Pain is usually the result of localised swelling of injured tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments) which creates pressure on nerves. Pressure on a nerve causes muscle spasm or contraction. This can lead to a vicious cycle of altered function of joints and muscles, strain and pain.

The Vicious Circle of Pain
Pain is a natural defence mechanism to alert you that something is wrong. Look at it as a red traffic light - if you ignore it, you may damage your body further.
