Adults come to osteopaths for many reasons
They include workplace stress, weekend warrior scenario or unaccustomed physical activity, recent or chronic injuries, long term pain and poor posture.
Some common adult complaints are:
- Back and neck pain, headaches and migraines
- Sciatica and conditions of nerve referral
- Pain and poor function in peripheral joints such as hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, ankles, tendinitis and muscle strains.
- Work related and repetitive strain injuries
- Sporting injuries.
Osteopaths take a case history and use observation, examination, and special testing to find areas of restriction and to determine the cause of the problem. They use their hands to reduce restriction and pain and improve function of the body as a whole. Our treatment often includes ways in which you can help yourself through an exercise routine (or rest), improving your diet or modifying your posture or work environment.
