Osteopathy is a physical therapy that uses techniques such as massage mobilisations and manipulation, to help with a wide range of complains, not just ‘bad backs’.
The demands of a modern lifestyle places stress and strains on our muscles, ligaments and joints, which can cause the body to malfunction. This can lead to pain, stiffness, disability and a number of other symptoms.
Your osteopath should be able to locate the source of these symptoms and any underlying condition that may be causing them, and then if appropriate, alleviate them accordingly. The aim of your appointments will be to help free joints and loosen muscles and other tissues, allowing the body to heal quicker.
Although best known for helping back and neck problems, osteopaths can also help with:
- Shoulder pain (such as frozen shoulder)
- Arm and hand injuries
- Sports injuries
- Ligament strains
- Pulled muscles
- “Trapped nerves”
- Arthritic pain
- Pins and needles
- Repetitive strain injuries
- General muscle and joint stiffness
Age or illness is not a barrier for osteopaths, an each patient is assessed individually, so a bespoke plan can be organised to fit almost anybody. To find out how we can help you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch today.
