LOUISE BOYER osteopath
Joint pain and arthritis
There is no denying that osteopaths spend a lot of their time working directly on joints. We employ a lot of gentle, but strong therapeutic techniques in order to improve range of movement and quality of movement. Many structures can be the cause of pain if they are injured or aggravated and most respond well to the appropriate treatment.
For patients suffering with arthritis, an irreversible condition affecting the quality of the joint surface, osteopathy can help them to reach a level of functionality that is manageable, again through the use of gentle therapeutic techniques.
