What Type of Injuries Do Osteopaths Treat?

Published by Better Health Osteopathy on 6 June 2022, Pain ManagementRehabilitation / ExercisesSports InjuriesUncategorized

Our Osteopaths are Better Health Osteopathy are highly trained primary healthcare providers who are trained to treat all sorts of musculoskeletal injuries. These include back pain, neck pain, headaches, trapped nerves, sciatica, shoulder injuries, knee injuries, plantar fasciitis, and sports injuries such as pulled hamstrings, Achilles tendonitis, rotator cuff injuries, and ankle sprains, to name a few.

Our approach is to provide the highest quality of care to our patients through osteopathic treatment and help address all our patients’ underlying injuries more cohesively and under one roof!

Our patients are often amazed that we can address several injuries at one appointment. This usually avoids the need for patients to seek help from numerous different healthcare professionals for their various injuries. More importantly, our patients learn that everything in the body is anatomically connected and that an Osteopath will never look at your injury in isolation.

Suppose, for example, that you present with back pain. In that case, your Osteopath will never just examine and treat the back, as there often will be associated dysfunction in the upper back, neck, knee, and ankle. Our Osteopaths will then treat all these areas of dysfunction as there is a high chance these are all interrelated injuries and that your primary injury will not heal properly without addressing the other dysfunctional areas present in the body.

Our Osteopaths, therefore, offer a holistic approach to healthcare. By using Osteopathic treatment, we also aim to limit the need for medication and provide pain relief by addressing the true underlying cause of the pain.

At Better Health Osteopathy, we have a three-pronged approach to treatment:

  1. Pain relief
  2. Rehabilitation and restoration of function
  3. Return to play and everyday activities.

So next time you are in the clinic, please feel free to discuss any other injuries you may be struggling with, as you might be surprised at how easy we can address these for you! 😊

If you are struggling with one or numerous injuries – Our Osteopaths are here to help you!
