What Can an Osteopath Treat?

Osteopaths’ patients include the young, older people, manual workers, office professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people. Patients seek treatment for a wide variety of conditions, which include:

  • General aches and pains
  • General, acute and chronic backache/back pain
  • Uncomplicated mechanical neck pain
  • Headache arising from the neck (cervicogenic)
  • Joint pains including hip and knee pain from osteoarthritis (as an adjunct to core OA treatments and exercise)
  • Arthritic pain
  • Sciatica
  • Minor sports injuries
  • Joint pain and lumbago
  • Muscle spasms
  • Neuralgia
  • Rheumatic pain
  • Frozen shoulder/tennis elbow/shoulder and elbow pain (arising from musculoskeletal conditions of the back and neck)
  • Postural strains/problems (e.g. work related, driving, pregnancy)
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Fibromyalgia

  • Osteopaths are fully trained in recognising when Osteopathy cannot treat a medical condition and will therefore refer a patient to their GP if and when necessary.
