What do Osteopaths treat?
Osteopathic techniques are commonly applied to conditions such as:
- neck and back pain
- back pain during and after pregnancy
- arthritis and joint pain
- scoliosis and postural problems
- hip, knee, ankle and foot pain
- shoulder, elbow and wrist pain
- 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.
