Examples of conditions treated by osteopathy

The range of conditions which may be treated by osteopathy is vast and covers complaints common in babies, right up to those which commonly affect elderly people.

The most common conditions treated by osteopaths are aches and pains related to the muscles; usually these are located in the back and neck. Back and neck pain may be attributed to poor posture, which can also be improved as a result of osteopathic techniques.

Sports injuries such as strains and sprains are also frequently treated by osteopaths; this often forms an integral part of a sportsperson’s recovery and rehabilitation programme and can help to restore the body to full physical fitness in a shorter period of time. Osteopathy can also prevent sports injuries by ensuring the muscles are loose and good posture is maintained.
