Arthritic Pain Osteopathic Treatment

Osteoarthritis most commonly affects people over the age of 45 years, but is known to also affect younger people that have other joint conditions or have suffered from a past injury. It is the leading cause of pain and disability in adults worldwide.

How an Osteopath can help with joint pain

If you are suffering from arthritis, we can help reduce pain, ease swelling and improve mobility. Many people think that pain killers or anti-inflammatory medications are the only answer, however this is not true at all.

We have been working with people who suffer from arthritis for years and have successfully helped reduce symptoms, sometimes immediately.

Our treatments are focused on improving mobility and reducing inflammation by using gentle, manual osteopathic techniques on joints, muscles and ligaments. Our treatments are gentle and therefore age is no barrier. Anybody with arthritis can benefit from osteopathic treatment. Along with physical treatment, we also give advice on lifestyle changes that may further help reduce symptoms, such as nutrition and diet.

Our treatments help release muscle tension around the affected joint, improve the range of movement and encourage better joint health by promoting blood and lymph flow to and from the area. This will result in pain reduction and inflammation and improved flexibility.

We treat any of the following problems and symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Low back pain
  • Hip pain
  • Early morning stiffness
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Lack of mobility

Can arthritis be cured?

Although there’s no cure for arthritis, osteopathic treatments are focused on significantly improving your condition and relieving you of the symptoms that restrict your life. There is a clear and definite benefit of starting treatment at an early stage to help improve your condition.
