Arthritis and other injuries and illnesses at your osteopath in Chalfont



Arthritis is a chronic disease which is characterised by pain and inflammation of the joints. It can affect a single part of the body or it can affect multiple parts of the body. Here with our osteopath in Chalfont we have found that arthritis is a common disease which people wish to address using osteopathic techniques. This is often after failing to find success with conventional medication or to carry out alongside long-term conventional medication for further relief. Over the years much research and experience has shown that with specialised osteopathic techniques and simple home exercises our osteopath in Chalfont can relieve pain, increase flexibility and improve the overall quality of life for patients who are suffering from arthritis.


Speak to our osteopath in Chalfont today if you are suffering from arthritis. We will find out about your medical history, speak to you about your symptoms and which areas of your body are affected. Our osteopaths will also find out about the medication that you are taking for your arthritis and look at your doctor's notes to see if there are any complications. If your osteopath in Chalfont is happy that osteopathy is a safe treatment option for you, then they will put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. This may be made up of nutritional advice, lifestyle advice, a schedule of osteopathy sessions, as well as simple exercises for you to carry out at home. This will enable you to manage your arthritis more effectively and successfully, allowing you to get on with your life as much as possible without letting arthritis get in the way.
