Home / News / Osteo Awareness Week this 19th-26th April

Did you know that April 19th-26th is Osteopathy Awareness Week? This event raises the topic of the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and wellbeing.

What is Osteopathy Awareness?

Osteo Awareness is about encouraging better ways to prevent and manage pain, injury and stiffness related to the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves and circulatory system. It’s important to note that osteopathy, as a practice, focuses on treating these areas as an interconnected unit.

With the most recent report from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare showing 1 in 6 Australians suffer from back problems, osteopathic health is a valid subject. The issue is not only topical across the world but in our very own backyard!

What will Osteopathy Awareness Week mean for you?

Osteo Awareness Week is the ideal time to find out how osteopathy might be able to help you. It’s good to be mindful and bring awareness to you or others around you that may suffer from joint, musculoskeletal and/or back pain and related issues. You could even use it as an opportunity to learn more about how your spine supports your overall health and wellbeing.

It might be something as simple as making achievable lifestyle changes. Choosing food rich in calcium (typically found in dairy products and dark green leafy vegetables) may help to nourish the bones, discs, muscles and other parts of the spine. Finding a supportive mattress may also be helpful in making healthier lifestyle changes. Keeping adequately mobile may also assist your body to stay more supple and resilient.
