What can osteopathy treat?

Essentially osteopathic treatment is normally appropriate and successful in any area that is composed of musculo-skeletal tissue i.e. bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, tendons and all the connecting tissues. These can be injured in acute ways through work, sport, DIY or can be more long-term and chronic in their nature and may well have a postural component see (The Alexander Technique).

Conditions Treated:

  • Spinal pain – this includes the neck, upper back and low-back areas
  • Joint pain – any joints in the body from hip and shoulder right through to the small joints of the hands and feet
  • Arthritic pain
  • Headache – various types
  • Work or sport related stresses or injuries
  • Digestive disorders

Advertising standards and legality require that any claims made for osteopathic treatment be evidence based see (Research Supporting Osteopathy). Therefore listed above are all the conditions that we can claim we treat, if this all you need – read no further. However if you would like more information about other conditions see (The Possibilities of Osteopathy, and Links and Interesting Reading) and check out the testimonial pages.
