Did you know

Of the wide range of patients that are treated by osteopaths:

Half suffer low back trouble

Most back pain results from mechanical disturbances of the spine - postural strains, joint derangement and spinal disc injuries.  Osteopathy, with its comprehensive approach to healthcare, is a particularly successful approach to treatment.

Over half are women

Many women are working mothers and combining both aspects of their lives can give rise to problems from the perennial headache to debilitating musculoskeletal disorders.  Many headaches originate from stiffness and tension in the neck and osteopathic treatment can often bring relief.  Pregnancy can put strain on the whole spine and osteopathic treatment can help the body adapt to the many changes it experiences.

A quarter are in their forties

Many patients are losing fitness at this stage in their lives and are more prone to injury.  Osteopaths consider the whole person, examining posture and the strength and flexibility of muscles, ligaments and tendons.  Treatment is designed to alleviate current problems and to help prevent recurrences.

Many are elderly

Pain-killers  are not the only solution for the aches and pains associated with ageing.  For more permanent relief it is necessary to eliminate the underlying causes of pain, a job for which the osteopath is specifically trained.  Osteopathy can also help to reduce pain and stiffness in the less acute stages of arthritis.

Many problems relate to work and lifestyle

Work, whether at a computer terminal or in heavy industry, can give rise to disorders of muscles, tendons and joints, particularly in the back, hands and arms.  Osteopaths treat many conditions related to the workplace and can give remedial advice an preventative exercise.
