The most common conditions treated by osteopaths are neck and back pain. However, osteopathy is a very potent treatment for stiffness, aches, pains and dysfunction in other parts of the body. Osteopathy and Cranial Osteopathy can therefore provide an effective treatment option for a wide range of conditions including, but not limited to:
- Generalised aches and pains
- Acute and chronic back pain
- Neck pain
- Joint pain
- Arthritic pain
- Hip, knee, ankle and foot problems
- Shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist problems
- Frozen shoulder
- Ligament strains, muscle sprains and minor sports injuries
- Circulatory problems
- Headaches and Migraine arising from neck and back problems
- TMJ/Jaw disorders
- Muscle spams
- Digestion problems
- Rheumatic pain
- Pain and stiffness associated with arthritis
- Inability to relax
- Occupational musculo-skeletal disorders
Osteopaths treat the person not the condition. The aim of treatment is to help resolve structural imbalances that are present throughout the body in order to restore a state of physical and physiological balance and function. Treatment can therefore help in improving overall good health and wellbeing. Patients often report improvement in many aspects of their health following osteopathic treatment.
The Advertising Standards Agency will only allow clinical therapists to mention conditions where the efficacy of their treatment has been proven by large-scale clinical trials. This data is not available for many of the conditions which patients report improvement in following osteopathic treatment. They therefore may not be specifically mentioned here.
