What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
IBS is a common condition that affects the digestive system.
It causes symptoms like stomach cramps, bloating, diarrhoea and constipation. These tend to come and go over time, and can last for days, weeks or months at a time.
It’s usually a lifelong problem. It can be very frustrating to live with and can have a big impact on your everyday life.
There’s no cure, but diet changes and medicines can often help control the symptoms.
The exact cause is unknown as it’s been linked to things like food passing through your gut too quickly or too slowly, oversensitive nerves in your gut, stress, and a family history of IBS.
How Can we Help?
we use various techniques that can be applied to the abdomenal cavity where treatment focuses on the nervous and circulatory systems, spine, viscera, and thoracic and pelvic diaphragms to help manage irritable bowel syndrome.
Visceral Osteopathy improves short-term and long-term abdominal distension and pain, and also decreases rectal sensitivity in IBS patients. As part of management plan with other healthcare professionals.
