Shoulder elbow and wrist pain will seriously affect any tasks needing manual dexterity whilst hip, knee and ankle problems often have serious consequences to your general mobility. Working to help local tissues heal when damaged and to improve joint mobility your osteopath will reduce the pain and restore function locally. They will also help ensure other areas of the body are working optimally to reduce the strain on the problematic joint, thereby encouraging tissue healing.
From an acute ankle sprain, a niggling pain in a shoulder to chronic aches in hips and knees you can be certain your osteopath will examine the joint, assess for serious damage and advise accordingly to ensure you have the best treatment for your particular problem.
