Osteopathy for Arthritis Sufferers

0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Arthritis may be hereditary but is generally caused by poor posture, heavy manual work and previous injury. We osteopaths spend a vast amount of time helping to alleviate the pain and suffering caused by arthritis.  Many of my patients mistakenly assume they must learn to live with their symptoms.  In many cases, I can help my clients considerably, by bringing about pain relief and offering helpful advice on lifestyle management to improve their quality of life.

Osteopathy is an effective way to manage arthritis and the associated symptoms such as:

  • joint pain
  • lower back pain
  • hip and knee pain
  • early morning stiffness & neck pain
  • lack of mobility, swelling and inflammation

There are different types of arthritis including:

Osteoarthritis  – This is the most common type of arthritis I see. It’s a degenerative joint condition also known as “wear and tear” that affects the spine, hips, knees, feet and hands.

Rheumatoid Arthritis  – This is the second most common type. It’s an auto-immune disease causing chronic inflammation of the joints in the whole body.

Other kinds of arthritis would include gout, ankylosing spondylitis, scleroderma and systemic lupus erythematosus.

There is no cure for arthritis, however, osteopathic treatment can do a great deal to reduce pain, ease swelling and improve mobility and range of joint motion. I focus on eliminating symptoms through early diagnosis and advice on lifestyle changes to help prevent further degeneration.

My osteopathic treatment for arthritis sufferers normally involves gentle manual osteopathic techniques on joints, muscles and ligaments.  This may also involve gentle stretching, mobility and traction techniques.  I may also prescribe exercises to do at home to improve joint function and to reduce muscle spasm.  I strongly suggest exercises in warm water, salt baths or even light pool aerobics since in water there is less impact on joints.

My aim as an osteopath is to:

  • provide immediate relief from symptoms.
  • improve mobility.
  • reduce pain and swelling.
  • promote range of joint motion.
  • educate on how to improve your quality of life through diet, nutritional support, posture and exercise.
