How can osteopathy help the elderly?

By seeing an osteopath every few months can often make a difference to mobility and well-being.

Osteopathy can offer a real benefit to many conditions associated with advancing years. Using careful, gentle and accurate methods, the osteopath restores flexibility and health to parts of the body that have become stiff and degenerative which can be very rewarding to patients if their pain can be substantially reduced using the body’s natural healing systems. As a result the chances of a person needing medication, injections or surgery may be significantly reduced.

We often liken maintenance on the body to the servicing of a car. Every few months we need to get the car looked at and ‘tweak’ a few things here and there to optimise performance, Well, we are no different.

Osteopaths often work in conjunction with medical practitioners and realize that patients benefit from a more holistic approach to their health management.
