Joint Pain and Arthritis
The joints of the body are a magnificent feat of engineering, operating for years without failure or complaint and are mostly taken for granted. However, most of us will have some degree of osteoarthritis by retirement age and lack the joint mobility we had in our younger years. Joint pain will affect almost all of us at sometime throughout life. This can be due to trauma, sports injury, biomechanical dysfunction, disease or the wear and tear of osteoarthritis. It is only when joints are not functioning correctly and they begin to limit our lives, that we become aware of them.
Osteopathy treats the joints of the body from head to toe using manipulation, massage, joint articulation and exercises. Whether it is a knee strain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, repetitive strain injury (RSI), or carpal tunnel syndrome, osteopathy can help. Significant improvement can be made to the range and quality of joint motion, even with arthritis. This can reduce the need for medication and may delay the onset of surgical intervention for advanced cases.
Our clinics in Central London, Borehamwood (Hertfordshire) and Stoke-on-Trent (Staffordshire) are able to treat joint paint throughout the body and we also have a specialist foot clinic that can help with foot pain and arthritis in the feet.
