How can osteopathy help?
An osteopath will release muscle tension around the affected joint, improve the range of movement and encourage better joint health by promoting blood and lymph flow to and from the area. This will reduce pain and inflammation whilst also increasing flexibility.
In addition, an osteopath will work to optimise the function of related areas of the body, to ensure that movement and loading is distributed as evenly as possible.
Osteopaths can use a variety of techniques to achieve this, depending on the individual’s situation. These include gentle articulation, Soft tissue mobilization, neural mobilization, Spinal mobilization, stretch and joint mobilisation. We will also be able to advise on strengthening and stretching exercises to do at home.
The holistic approach of an Osteopath helps to treat even severe knee problems more effectively and long lastingly.
