We treat all kinds of joint pains. From hip, knee and ankle pain to kneck pain - joint pains are common and often highly treatable. A combination of osteopathy and physiotherapy can produce good results.
Knee pain can be due to the wearing process associated on the cartilages of the knee (commonly known as meniscus). Or it can associated with imbalances or weakness of the ligaments, muscles or tendons around the knee joint.
Osteopathic treatment of the structures will often help relieve knee pain. Knee pain can also be due to problems between the hip and the foot if either of these joints are misaligned or restricted.
The extra strain can be put through the knee which can lead to knee pain. Osteopaths, physiotherapists and chiropractors are trained to carefully examine the posture of these limbs. We give advice on stretches and rehabilitation aimed at reducing the strain on the knee.
We are trained to treat and diagnose mechanical causes of foot and ankle pain. We will often treat clients with restricted ankle joints planter fasciitis, long-term sports injuries and other imbalances that affect the foot and ankle.
We use osteopathic treament in conjunction with local podiatrists who can provide supports to maintain a healthy foot which can also reduce the foot and ankle pain.

We are still dealing with the spine when we talk about the neck. The second most common problem after low back pain that we see is neck pain.
Postural problems cause muscle and joint problems in the neck. Sometimes this can cause headaches. Like the lower back we would often see trapped nerves giving rise to pain in the arms and hands, and some times pins and needles, weakness or numbness.
There are many causes of neck pain from posture to whiplash.
Osteopathic treatment usually consists of releasing the tension in the muscles and joints. We will also give overall advice on sitting posture. Whether this is an acute or chronic onset may change the way in which we give advice.
We are experts and treating neck pain using osteopathic hands on treatment and physiotherapy exercises.
Problems with hip joints will often result in pain in the side of the hip or the groin. Frequently this pain is described as dull or aching. This pain can often develop to pain in the front of the thighs well.
By releasing the muscles around the hip as well as checking the pelvis and its position relative to the lower back these imbalances and tensions can improved.
