Osteopathy in Later Life

As we age, the body becomes less elastic and is increasingly prone to injury and wear and tear.

This can give rise to symptoms such as:

  • Morning pain and stiffness
  • Lower back, neck and joint pains
  • Joint-swelling and inflammation
  • Arthritic conditions

It is common for people over 65 to suffer the effects of aging in the musculo-skeletal system. This gives rise to restricted movement, stiffness and pain. Patients are often told they have to live with the symptoms because of their age, however many patients have found that Osteopathic treatment with supplementary advice on exercises and stretching can be used to relieve these distressing symptoms.
