It has so historically developed with us that people, whether they are doctors or cosmetologists, work with symptoms, and the elimination of the root cause of the disease is the last thing they do. And this applies to both health and beauty. Headache – we drink pills, edema appeared – we put on masks.
This is a fundamentally wrong approach, since by neutralizing the symptom, we will not get rid of the problem itself, and sooner or later the situation will repeat itself. Osteopathy looks for causes of symptoms in body congestion, bone misalignment, and birth trauma. We have selected 4 common appearance problems that can be caused by precisely such reasons, which osteopathic doctors deal with.
Hair loss, brittleness and dull hair color
For clarity, you can compare hair with grass: in order for them to grow, they also need favorable “soil”, moisture. Hair follicles feed on arterial blood, which is a conductor of nutrients.
When blood circulation is disturbed, a “drought” occurs, as a result of which the hair becomes lifeless, dull, and begins to fall out. Why is this happening? Most often, the cause of circulatory disorders are birth or acquired injuries of the skull, due to which compression of the vessels occurs. Blood does not reach the hair follicles in sufficient quantities, which provokes hair loss.
Puffiness of the face
One of the reasons for the appearance of edema on the face may be the stagnation of fluid in the tissues of the face due to the compression of blood vessels. When the venous and lymphatic vessels are “pinched” by bones, ligaments, tense muscles, this contributes to the formation of the so-called “excess water”. During sleep, we are in a horizontal position for a long time, which further “slows down” the outflow of fluid from the face. That is why puffiness is most noticeable in the morning.
Puffiness reduction is a natural effect of osteopathic treatment. This fact is noted by almost all patients. Coming for one result, they received “a life without edema” as a nice bonus.
Redness and skin irritation
Circulatory disorders can also provoke the appearance of irritations on the skin of the face. Since there is a stagnation of fluid in the skin, its protective properties are violated. The skin becomes vulnerable and easily “picks up” infections, which are manifested by redness, rashes, etc.
Therefore, before shifting the responsibility to the “predisposition” and “features” of the skin, it is first necessary to improve the outflow of lymph and blood from the face so that the protective properties of the skin are restored and that it cleanses itself.
One of the main causes of facial asymmetry is birth trauma. If the mother’s pelvis is crooked, when the head passes through the birth canal, it is deformed, the bones are displaced from their normal position; the whole skull undergoes such a change.
And if a mother brought such a child to an osteopath at a young age, there is every chance to correct the situation. The older a person gets, the harder it is to change something. In a formed person, of course, it is not possible to change position and completely eliminate asymmetry. Acquired injuries can also contribute to the asymmetry: blows, dental injuries. Oddly enough, but such cases are common. Against the background of osteopathic treatment, they become less noticeable.
Of course, the lack of vitamins in the body, bad habits, sleep disturbance, passive lifestyle and improper diet also affect our appearance. But often people, in particular women, who lead a healthy lifestyle, continue to experience all of these problems. And in this case, it may be worth consulting with an osteopath.
