Osteopathy and the Elderly

Many retired people may not be as active as they used to be. I hear many say that you are more active!

But over time we start to see signs of wear and tear.

These can be felt as ‘more stiffness in the mornings’ to the more degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis.

We may also see other changes. Not heal as quickly from knocks and bumps. Surgery features more often in this period in our lives.

And it may take a long time to get moving again. Or we may be experiencing signs of declining health.

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. 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.

Here are a few conditions that have been shown to benefit from osteopathic treatment:

  • Joint pain and stiffness
  • Headache
  • Osteoarthritis ("wear-and-tear")
  • Neck and back ache
  • Effects of falls and other accidents
  • Congested sinuses
  • General symptoms of declining health
  • Circulatory conditions
  • Teeth and face problems
  • Digestive disorders
  • Effects of operations
  • Fatigue
  • Frozen Shoulder
