Arthritis comes in many forms and can be a debilitating disease. Pain and restricted movement impacts all areas of life: physical movement, emotions, activities of daily living, occupation and how we interact with others. There's good news though, Amatsu Therapy treatments can provide some relief from the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Read on to find out how.
How can Amatsu Therapy help alleviate the symptoms of Osteoarthritis?
Amatsu works on the soft tissues around the joint – the muscles, ligaments and fascia - to loosen over-tight muscles and wake up muscles that aren't working optimally. This restores the correct tensions and removes any abnormal twists and pulls on the joints. This in turns takes the pressure off the areas that are ‘rubbing’ together. We do not put joints back into position, this happens naturally when correct tensions are restored during an Amatsu Therapy treatment by a process called ‘Biotensegrity’. As Amatsu Therapy practitioners our aim is to get joints “floating” so that the joint has plenty of room around it and the bones move exactly as they were designed to, supported by ligaments at the right tension, and bones therefore do not rub together when the body moves. Accompanying stiffness can also be improved so that overall joint and therefore body mobility increases and pain reduces. Once under control, regular maintenance treatments can keep the symptoms of arthritis at bay.
What will an Amatsu Therapy treatment be like for someone with arthritis?
Amatsu Therapy will fully assess the joints concerned; it will check the balance of the muscles surrounding the joint and it'll also test the joint's range of motion. Assessment is not limited though to just the affected joint. The muscles and ligaments of the pelvis and limbs will also be evaluated to ascertain the most effective way to restore balance back to the whole body, with minimum intervention. The body integrates minimal corrections far better leading to longer lasting results, which is why we choose the most appropriate part of the body to treat first; this may not necessarily be where the most pain is felt or where limited mobility is experienced the most.
