Osteopathy

Who can benefit from Osteopathic treatment?

Osteopathic treatments can benefit people of all ages from all walks of life and help them return to an active lifestyle. Osteopathy helps assess, diagnose and treat musculoskeletal symptoms and pain in areas such as the head, neck, hips and legs, spine and lower back, shoulders, arms, and small joints.

Active and sportspeople, expectant and new mums, people with reduced activity levels or sedentary desk-based jobs can experience musculoskeletal symptoms and conditions causing back, shoulder, neck, arm and leg pain which may benefit from osteopathic treatment.

 

Active and sportspeople

Leisure and sporting activities, in addition to work and the demands of daily living, can take their toll on your body creating musculoskeletal stresses and strains. 

Active and sporting lifestyles can result in muscle strains and sprains which can be eased with osteopathic treatments and sports massage. 

 

Pregnant and new mums

Expectant and new mums often suffer changes to spinal and pelvic alignment which can cause pain and discomfort and gentle osteopathic treatments are able to help ease symptoms.

 

Office and manual workers

Busy days spent sitting at a desk or behind the wheel, caring for others or running around after children, engaging in heavy manual work or gardening. 

Greater numbers of people are using computers and technology whilst at home, either working or for leisure, and develop symptoms resulting in reduced efficiency, reduced function or increasing disability, which may be improved with osteopathic treatment. 

Whether active or desk-based, working posture can cause musculoskeletal symptoms associated with over and underuse, which can be helped with osteopathic treatment. 

 

Elderly

With age, we can experience generalised aches and pains or restricted joint movements due to the normal ageing process affecting tissues, and these symptoms can be improved with osteopathic treatment. 

Arthritis is a common condition that can be extremely painful, especially in small joints of hands and feet, which affects the quality of life and levels of independence. Symptoms of joint pain, swelling and stiffness can be soothed by osteopathic treatment. 

Maintenance osteopathic treatments can help with:

  • improving joint function and reducing pain and the general health and wellbeing,

  • improving soft tissue mobility to improve overall function,

  • improving physical and emotional resilience to help cope with the stresses of work and life,

  • enhancing sporting performance and speeding recovery from injury,

  • reducing spinal problems resulting from poor posture,

  • relieving headaches, migraines and tension in the body.

Osteopathy is of benefit to patients of all ages and all professions, including retired people, and helps support a healthier, more active lifestyle. 

Do you suffer from low back pain or sciatica, shoulder, neck or head pain, hip, leg or knee pain, arm or hand pain, or general aches & pains from arthritis?

 

If so, osteopathy can help you.

My Story

Prior to gaining her degree in Osteopathy, Jan enjoyed a varied nursing career working in surgical and medical wards in Cardiothoracic, ENT and Hospice settings.

Jan worked in Occupational Health Units in Police Forces, Ambulance, Fire & Rescue Services and the NHS, as well as Financial and Legal sectors.

A significant part of Jan’s professional experience was dedicated to managing debilitating musculoskeletal (MSK) symptoms in fit, active, healthy individuals of working age to help support them remain in or return to work.

Jan is also aware of the increasing MSK conditions among the elderly due to the normal ageing processes affecting tissues and joints which osteopathic health care can help with.
