Senior treatment

Osteopathy & Seniors

Ageing is a natural physiological process in life. One part of the body which is greatly affected by the process of ageing is the musculoskeletal system.

As we get older, the elasticity present within our body deteriorates, which increases the risk of injuring the soft tissues and bony structures of the body.

The effects of ageing on the body’s structure give rise to symptoms, including:
  • Generalised early morning stiffness and reduced mobility.
  • Lower back pain and stiffness.
  • Neck, shoulder, arm or hand pain.
  • Hip, knee and foot pain.
  • Arthritic pain and joint swelling.

However gentle osteopathic treatment, consisting of soft tissue massage, articulation and stretching, can be used to relieve these distressing symptoms.

Furthermore, osteopathy can also help with:
  • Rehabilitation following surgery/replacement (for example: back, hip or knee).
  • Keeping shoulders, hands and wrists mobile for tasks of daily living, including cooking, writing and driving.
  • Avoiding or delaying the need for surgery.
  • Exercise prescription
