Whether caused through an injury or the wear and tear of everyday life, Osteoarthritis can be exceptionally painful – but it doesn’t have to stop you in your tracks. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that most commonly occurs in weight-bearing joints such as the knees, hips and spine but can also affect the shoulders, hands, feet and jaw.
While usually associated with older patients, the condition can also be caused by joint damage as the result of trauma or repetitive stress and can affect younger people. The condition results in pain, swelling, stiffness and movement restriction and can affect a person’s ability to carry out everyday tasks by limiting their mobility. But it doesn’t have to be that way – with our support and osteopathic treatment can help you manage this condition, reducing pain, easing swelling, improving mobility and letting you live the life you want to live.
