Osteopathic Medicine and Sports Injury clinic
At Morley Osteopaths we believe that osteopathic medicine can help a wide range of people with a wide range of conditions. People often think of Osteopaths as back specialists. Whilst this is true, Osteopaths also specialise in a wide range of mechanical disorders. Osteopathic treatment does not target symptoms only but treats the parts of the body that have caused the symptoms. Osteopaths have a holistic approach and believe that your whole body will work well if your body is in good structural balance.
Conditions treated by osteopaths
Although osteopaths are well known for treating back pain, the practice of osteopathy can help relieve the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. Osteopaths treat joint pain, conditions, digestive conditions, and the following example problems:
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Sports Injuries
- Frozen Shoulder
- Tennis and Golfer's Elbow
- Pelvis, Hip and Leg Problems
- Arthritic Pain
- Foot and Ankle Pain - including Plantar Fasciitis
- Rheumatic disorders including Fibromyalgia
- Wrist and Hand Pain
However, patients have found osteopathy helpful for many other conditions.
Early intervention is key and makes a swift and full recovery much more likely, so if you suffer from occasional discomfort, consider consulting an osteopath, as preventative treatment and advice can be a worthwhile investment in your long-term health.
