There are many different types of arthritis with a wide range of symptoms affecting a variety of joints.  Osteopathy can help with the symptoms of osteoarthritis (wear and tear) which often manifests as joint stiffness and pain.  Osteoarthritis commonly affects the weight bearing joints, hips, knees and lower back.
Osteopathic treatment cannot reverse the arthritis changes in the joint but can often help to reduce the joint pain and stiffness.
