Joint Problems

Joints connect bones, enabling movement.

Painful joints can be caused by osteoarthritic changes, rheumatoid arthritis, infection, bursitis, trauma etc.

Sometimes after a blow or fall a joint can become misaligned and/or dysfunctional, having a knock on effect throughout the body depending on the severity and time that it is left in that changed anatomical state. The body’s compensation could ultimately affect your quality of life.

Osteopaths specialise in joint related conditions, we holistically evaluate the structure and function of your joints and muscles both statically and dynamically.

Long standing symptoms make it harder to define the primary cause, however by working out muscle patterns, understanding the medical history, using tests and palpatory skills the underlying cause can be identified and treatment can be targeted, thus speeding recovery.
