What do Osteopaths treat?

Osteopathic techniques are commonly applied to conditions such as:

  • neck and back pain
  • sciatica
  • back pain during and after pregnancy
  • arthritis and joint pain
  • sports injuries

  • scoliosis and postural problems
  • hip, knee, ankle and foot pain
  • shoulder, elbow and wrist pain
  • RSI
  • headache and migraine
  • jaw pain
  • Osteopathy, in conjunction with medical treatment, can also reduce symptoms of such complaints as asthma, digestive problems, period pains and lowered immunity following illness.
  • As well as the ‘hands on’ treatment Osteopaths may prescribe rehabilitation exercises or give ergonomic and postural advice as a means of enhancing recovery and preventing re-injury.
