What We Treat?

    This list is by no means exhaustive but it illustrates some of the more common conditions we treat.


  • Back pain and sciatica

  •     Back pain affects four out of five people and is the most common problem osteopaths treat.

        Often there is associated pain and discomfort in the legs, often referred to as sciatica or a 'trapped nerve.' Most cases, whilst very painful, can be helped, especially if seen promptly.

     

  • Headaches, neck and shoulder pain

  •     These very common symptoms are frequently associated with pain and discomfort in the arms, may be linked with stress, driving, desk work or a host of other activities and can often be helped with osteopathic treatment.

     

  • Joint and muscle strain

  •     Osteopathy can also help in the recovery from other joint and muscle strains in any part of the body, for example ankle strains, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow and other repetitive strain injuries.

     

  • Sports injuries

  •     Osteopathic treatment can often benefit sports men and women at all levels of performance to help speed-up recovery from injury, restore normal function and prevent further injury.

        We see injuries relating to golf, running, cycling, football, rugby and many other sports.

     

  • Before and after surgery

  •     Treatment combined with exercise advice can help to maintain mobility, improve muscle strength and hence improve the outcome of orthopaedic operations, such as knee & hip replacement. This can also help restore the body to normal activity after surgery.

     

  • Arthritis (osteoarthritis)

  •     This is the result of wear and tear of joints and is often associated with ageing or injury.

        Whilst the wear cannot be reversed, the function of the affected joints can often be improved which can ease the pain and discomfort.

     

  • Back pain during pregnancy

  •     The postural and weight changes associated with pregnancy often lead to back, neck, hip and leg pain and associated digestive and breathing discomfort.

        Gentle osteopathic treatment can often provide relief from these symptoms.
