Nutrition and Injury Recovery
I did a presentation recently to some manual therapists (osteopaths, physiotherapists, massage therapists, energy therapists) about how nutrition can benefit the effects of their treatment on clients. So in addition to my own assumptions and research, I asked for some feedback from colleagues in the field.
A respected colleague/osteopath compared working on a healthy body versus an unhealthy body to a gardener working with healthy soil versus working in compact clay or loose sand or otherwise unhealthy soil. Just as with farmers who are trying to grow healthy food on depleted soil, the manual therapist’s job is made more difficult when their clients have unhealthy diet and lifestyle habits. Just as plants grown in poor soil are prone to pests, weeds and bugs, and require pesticides and fertilizers to make crops grow, an unhealthy body requires many treatments, potions, prescriptions, supplements and is stiff, rigid, unpliable and lacks energy flow and tends not to respond as favourably or efficiently to treatments.
