The majority of osteopathic treatments are gentle. This means that they will never cause pain and utmost discomfort to patients. However, you may experience some pain, especially if you have injuries causing you to have tender and painful parts in the body. A good practitioner will try to make you feel comfortable despite the injury, especially if he needs to do hands-on therapy.
Some techniques may also trigger some pain and discomfort, but rest assured that you’ll only deal with these for the short-term. Mild soreness, which may last for 1-2 days may also be experienced. Rest assured that these issues are only temporary. However, you need to contact your chosen practitioner in case of persistent soreness, so you’ll be treated appropriately.
