How Arthritis Treatment Can Help You

Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain, swelling, inflammation and often stiffness in the joints of the body.

The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, but there are many other types including ankylosing spondylitis, gout, psoriatic arthritis and reactive arthritis. Certain types of arthritis can also affect children.

How can Spine & Joint Centre osteopaths help?

Gentle manipulative and massage techniques by osteopaths can help some arthritis sufferers. Treatment is individual, gently moving and stretching an arthritic joint, massaging surrounding muscles and tissues to help ease discomfort. Sometimes an osteopath may work on general mobility of the other joints and muscles in the body to help the mechanics of the body work better. Osteopaths may also give advice on exercises, diet, posture and changes to lifestyle. X-rays, scans or other tests may be required and an osteopath may refer you to your GP for any additional investigations and treatment
