Osteopaths see many different people: the young, older people, manual workers, professionals, pregnant women, children and sports people. Patients seek treatment for a wide range of conditions, including back pain, sciatica, repetitive strain injury, back pain and pelvic pain in pregnancy, postural problems due to driving or work, joint pain due to arthritis and minor sports injuries.
Patients commonly see osteopaths for:
•Neck pain and back pain
•Posture and work related problems
•Headaches and migraines
•Pregnancy related back pain
•Muscle tension and strain
•Whiplash related neck pain
•Shoulder, elbow and wrist pain
•Hip, knee and foot pain
•Stress and anxiety
Research conducted at the Clinical Research Centre at Brighton University shows very high levels of patient satisfaction with osteopathic treatment (see here).
