Getting older shouldn't involve giving up what you have always loved to do. Okay, if it is skydiving and your knees are bone on bone, then we might have a challenge but generally I'm sure you have noticed, any ache or pain is attributable to arthritis or something that makes you feel old. Often these comments are said without even looking or feeling the area involved. So before you resign yourself to a life of pain killers or anti inflammatories maybe an Osteopath can be of assistance.
Osteopaths assess movement quality and quantity, can refer for xrays or MRI's if needed. We look at your muscle strength, balance and posture. We provide hands on treatment and if appropriate give you some take home exercises or stretches that will assist your problem.
A consultation with an Osteopath involves taking a medical history, a physical examination of the area of pain and related areas (for instance if you have a foot pain, then your foot, knee, hip and lower back will be examined), and a form of treatment that may be soft tissue massage style or gentle moving or joints, manipulation where indicated and plenty of advice as to how you can improve your mobility and get your bounce for life back.
