Osteopathy can treat a number of conditions that present with aches, pain or stiffness to joints, muscles, ligaments or tendons at any site on the body. Musculoskeletal pain and injury are commonly referred for treatment especially patients with neck or back pain but other conditions may benefit.
Most people believe osteopathy only treats back and neck pain. It is, in fact, a holistic therapy that can treat a wide range of complaints for most parts of the body.
Common complaints include stress, tension headaches, back pain, neck pain, whiplash, disk injuries, sciatica, trapped nerve, ankle sprains, tennis elbow, repetitive strain injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritic pain, postural problems and much more.

Shoulders can be prone to injury. There are many structures in the shoulder that can cause pain. Shoulder pain may result from direct trauma, sports injury, poor posture, repetitive actions or other conditions such as frozen shoulder or osteoarthritis.
BACK OR NECK PAIN
These are commonly treated conditions for which osteopathy may provide effective relief.
POSTURE RELATED PROBLEMS
Very few of us have good posture. This may be exacerbated by sitting at a desk for long periods.
PROBLEMS RELATED TO REPETITIVE ACTION
Repetitive action can lead to symptoms of pain, pins and needles, numbness or weakness in the arms and hands.
