While it’s most common to hear people complain about neck or back pain, this doesn’t mean that there aren’t countless people out there dealing with pain and inflammation in the hip, leg, ankle or foot. If you are dealing with symptoms on the lower right side you may be surprised to hear that the pain you are experiencing could be because another area of the musculoskeletal system is out of whack. For example, if you have a structural imbalance in your right foot your legs may naturally overcompensate, which can lead to leg pain and stiffness that could eventually affect your hips if left untreated.
If this sounds like something you are going through it’s important to find the compassionate care and treatment you need to improve not just how your body functions but also how it feels. Sure, many people turn to traditional medicine and care to get the relief they need; however, this doesn’t work for everyone. Whether you’ve exhausted your treatment options and haven’t found anything to reduce musculoskeletal pain in your right side or you just don’t like the idea of having to undergo surgery to achieve relief from your symptoms, there are so many people who can benefit from what our osteopractors can offer at Total Health Center.
Unfortunately, many people don’t understand what goes into osteopathy treatment. An osteopath focuses on providing the comprehensive care you need to reduce or even eliminate your symptoms while also caring for the body as a whole. When people think about an osteopath or physical therapist they often just assume that they only handle bone or muscle problems; however, an osteopath has been trained to provide a wide variety of care to handle mechanical issues that affect the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes everything from tendons and ligaments to nerves and joints.
Here at Total Health Center, we pride ourselves on offering a full range of services that can reduce and even eliminate musculoskeletal pain and swelling within the lower right side. You could benefit from osteopathic treatment if you are dealing with:
- Arthritis (of the hips, ankles or feet)
- Pain and discomfort related to pregnancy
- Joint stiffness
- Sprains and strains
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendinitis
Furthermore, regular manipulative therapy can also be a great preventive measure for patients who want to protect against certain injuries. This is a particularly great option for athletes and runners.
Of course, if you are dealing with any pain, swelling or discomfort in the lower right side it’s important that you have a team of osteopaths to help provide thorough, therapeutic care that can get you on the path to recovery.
