Osteopathy for joint pain and stiffness
Pain and stiffness may occur in any joint of the body.
Osteopaths commonly see people experiencing knee pain, ankle or foot pain, hip pain, low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, hand and wrist pain.
This may be caused by many different reasons, which the osteopath seeks to understand.
I will use gentle techniques such as stretching, massage, rhythmical movements or cranial osteopathy to release muscle tension and improve mobility of the painful joints.
Treatment is tailored to your specific needs, and might involve looking at other areas that might be affecting how the painful joint is moving. I may offer postural advice and stretching.
Sometimes imaging or other tests maybe required to make a diagnosis. In this case I will refer you to your GP or other specialist for any investigations.
