Head Pain

Sciatica

Sciatic is irritation of the sciatic nerve causing pain from the buttock down the leg and is often misdiagnosed. Pain in the buttock and leg can be from different causes such as trigger point muscle or muscle pain, nerve pain from a disc injury, or entrapment elsewhere. Osteopaths are trained to find the cause of the pain or sciatica and then loosen muscles, improve joint function to relive pain and rehabilitate your body.

Tendonitis

Tendon pain is caused by inflammation or degeneration of the portion of the muscle that attaches to the bone. Common tendon injuries include Achilles, tennis elbow, golf elbow, and shoulder, hip and knee pain.

Disc Pain

Spinal discs are the joints between the bones or vertebra.  They act as a cushion absorbing impact and control torsion and compressive forces in the spine.Over time the outer fibres of your discs can tear. Usually this isn’t painful, but sometimes a tear will reach the inner part of the disc or nucleus which can cause pain and inflammation.  What is disc pain? Read more …

Repetitive Strain

Repetitive strain is a general term used to describe injury or pain from repeated movements or sustained awkward positions. It is usually an injury that occurs over time and worsens with a particular movement or position. These positions can cause micro trauma to the tissues leading to pain and inflammation.Osteopaths can help you modify the activity or position to decrease any aggravation on the injury.  They will also treat the tissues and surrounding joints to help them reduce inflammation and tension. We work to strengthen and restore function.

Arthritis

Arthritis is a general term to describe degeneration of a joint, in particular the joint cartilage. The degeneration of joints can sometimes cause pain, stiffness, loss of mobility and deformity. Arthritis can affect both old and young. Some common types of arthritis are:

  • Osteo Arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Gout

Osteopaths can assist in the management of osteoarthritis by helping maintain joint range of motion, releasing adjacent joints and muscles and giving you strategies to modify your daily activities or sport, to take pressure off affected joints.
