Osteoarthritis (O/A) is a common type of arthritis, especially among the older population. Osteoarthritis can also be called degenerative joint disease, osteoarthrosis or “wear-and-tear” of the joints.
You don’t necessarily have to live with any of these symptoms:

Osteopathy and osteoarthritis
Four out of five people with osteoarthritis are living with constant pain. Osteopathic treatment can do a great deal to reduce pain, ease swelling and improving mobility. Treatment is not painful and often, symptom relief begins immediately.
The osteopath reduces pain by improving mobility and reducing inflammation. The treatment involves the use of gentle, manual osteopathic techniques on joints, muscles and ligaments. Osteopaths also give advice regarding lifestyle changes which can help to decrease joint pain.
The classic features of osteoarthritis such as pain, stiffness and restricted mobility can be eased and improved by skilled osteopathic treatment.
