What can our Osteopath in Chalfont offer relief from?


Osteopath in Chalfont

There are a number of reasons that you might be experiencing pain across your body and a number of reasons that our osteopath in Chalfont might be able to help. Your body, although strong and able to work through its own problems, sometimes needs a little help due to injuries, damage or a certain part feeling fatigued. That is where our osteopath in Chalfont can help. We use natural techniques without the use of medication to offer relief from pain.


Here at Rakhee Osteopathy, it is important to us that we look at our patients as a whole, rather than as individual symptoms. When treating problems this way, it is much more thorough and likely to relieve symptoms you were not even aware of, or find the cause where other approaches may not. We understand that you’re just as unique as whatever it is that is causing you pain.


In this short blog post, our osteopath in Chalfont will discuss just a few ailments that we can offer relief from and how.


Frozen shoulder


If you are suffering from a frozen shoulder, you are at risk of severe loss of motion in that same shoulder. The joint capsules are extremely inflamed at this point and trying to move them may cause you even more pain, which is why you should reach out to us for help! We want to know how your shoulder is affecting your life and will examine the area thoroughly before deciding on the techniques and treatments we will use. We will most likely use forms of massage, stretches and manipulation to help relieve pain and hopefully get some motion back, with the aim being to avoid surgery.


Hip pain


Hip pain and stiffness is an ailment that we unfortunately see a lot in our clinic. This type of pain can cause significant discomfort that can make it hard to carry out everyday tasks and go about your life as you usually would, which is why we recommend getting in touch with us as soon as possible. There are varying reasons that you might be experiencing hip pain, ranging from general wear and tear, pain coming down from the back, stiffness and inflammation. There are also more serious causes that can be found upon initial inspection. Our massage and stretch techniques can offer pain relief.


Tennis elbow


The pain caused by tennis elbow will often be local to the outside of the elbow, but can travel to other parts of the arm and shoulder. Overusing the muscles in this area can cause them to become worn down or inflamed, which is where the discomfort will come from. Repetitive movement is the main cause of this, but this doesn’t have to be from sports or other extreme movements. Anything that you do the same motion for over a long period of time can cause this pain, even from something as simple as opening a door. Seek out our massage treatments for some pain relief!
