Osteopathic treatment for foot, ankle, knee & hip pain

Pain from arthritis, sports injuries, sprains and strains, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis are common problems affecting these areas. Because these joints are closely linked and work together when walking, running and cycling etc, pain in one area often leads to pain in another.

Runners may complain of knee and ankle pain because they have compensated for an ankle sprain and that has put more pressure on the knee joint.  People with hip arthritis will present with knee & hip pain on the effected side. They often also complain of knee pain on the opposite side, due to putting more pressure on the “good leg”, to compensate for the painful hip.

How osteopathy can help

As Osteopaths we appreciate these mechanical interconnections and treat the whole picture not just the part that hurts.

Osteopathic treatment can help by reducing muscle tension, promoting ligament healing, improving joint flexibility and suggesting exercises to help reduce pain and promote tissue healing.(See sports injuries).

 

Osteopathy is a physical therapy which uses manual (hands-on) techniques to diagnose and treat structural and mechanical dysfunctions of the body, without the use of drugs or surgery. Soft tissue massage, joint and muscle stretches are used to improve range of movement and reduce pain and stiffness in the muscles, joints, bones, ligaments, tendons and nerves.
