As an holistic therapy, Osteopathy doesn’t just examine the area where the symptoms occur, it looks at other parts of the body that can cause or affect the symptoms.
This could be local, Osteoarthritis of your hip joint, or as a result of a mechanical dysfunction of the lower back.
Pain or stiffness in the knee can be due to Osteoarthritis of your knee or again can be related to lower back issues.
Muscular pain and stiffness
Muscle cramp, spasm or tension can be associated with mechanical joint dysfunction, or conditions in their own right. They can be caused by your muscles being strained, overused or associated with poor posture.
Osteopathy can help ease symptoms and I can advise you on how to help prevent symptoms from returning.
