Arthritis Treatments

Normal wear and tear of the joint surface can result in arthritis or osteoarthritis and produce arthritic pain. This kind of damage is not to be confused with some cases of arthritis that are caused by a disease affecting the joint surface. Osteoarthritis is a normal process associated with ageing. Usually the symptoms do not start until much later in life, if at all, and normally lead to some restriction in movement of the joints, plus some muscular aches and pains often referred to as rheumatism. Osteopathic treatment cannot reverse the wear and tear of the joint surface, but in most cases, osteopaths can offer treatment to improve function of other areas and structures, give advice on other factors, such as diet, exercises and lifestyle, which may help with long term relief from the symptoms associated with arthritis and arthritic pain. The osteopath will use a combination of soft tissue massage and gentle rhythmic mobilising techniques to loosen the joints and relax the muscles. Simple & easy exercises may also be recommended as healthy muscles help to stabilise these types of joint problems.
