Osteopathy for Later Years
Helping you keep healthy in later life
Ageing does not necessarily mean that we will experience increased pain or stiffness. However, if this does become a problem, people often find that treatment and advice from an osteopath can complement GP care and pharmaceutical products. If you do begin to notice problems, an osteopath can work with you to keep you healthier, allowing you to enjoy the pleasures of life into your later years.
You don’t have to put up with aches and pains simply because you are getting older. In fact, many people find it helpful to talk to an osteopath about ways of becoming even more active, or managing conditions such as osteoarthritis pain, rheumatic pain and cramp.
How Osteopathy can help
Osteopathic care is based on the individual needs of the patient and so varies depending on your age, fitness levels and diagnosis. Osteopaths use a wide range of hands-on techniques, focusing on releasing tension, stretching muscles and improving mobility. We have treated many people in their 90’s and of course treatment is totally different to how we would treat a young gymnast.
Although it is natural to worry about symptoms and the cause, our osteopaths will take a detailed case history and complete a routine examination that checks for many causes. They will advise and discuss any further action that might be required. After this examination, an osteopath will discuss treatment options to jointly decide an appropriate and suitable treatment plan.
