Arthritis is an inflammation or swelling of joints. It is usually referred to as an umbrella of conditions that can occur in the joints, soft tissues or connective tissues anywhere in our body.
How does arthritis develop?
Different forms of arthritis can be passed genetically, developed as we age or developed from immune-related disorders. Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are one of the most common forms of arthritis, which originates in the joints and is usually caused by wear and aging of our bones. Arthritis can cause pain, inflammation, stiffness, and a limited range of motion. While there is no cure for arthritis, manual osteopathic treatment can provide relief from pain and improve joint function.

What to Expect During an Osteopathic treatment for Osteoarthritis?
During an osteopathy session, the practitioner will first assess your condition by reviewing your medical history and performing a physical examination which might include a review of past imaging tests. The assessment aims to examine your posture, range of motion, and joint mobility.
Based on this assessment, the practitioner will develop a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs. A manual osteopath may use a variety of techniques, including:
Soft Tissue Massage
Soft tissue massage involves applying pressure to the muscles and soft tissues around the affected joint and can help release tension and reduce inflammation.
Joint mobilization involves gentle movements of the affected joint for improved mobility and reduced stiffness.
Bioflex laser therapy effectively treats many musculoskeletal conditions, including arthritis, and has numerous benefits. This painless and non-invasive treatment reduces inflammation, improves blood circulation, relieves pain, and accelerates healing.
Exercises can help improve flexibility and assist in reduced muscle and joint stiffness.
This technique involves applying gentle pressure to the connective tissue surrounding the affected joint, which can help to reduce pain and improve joint mobility.
This technique involves gentle touch to the head, neck, and spine to improve the flow of cerebrospinal fluid and reduce pain and tension.
how long is the treatment plan for arthritis?
The number of osteopathic sessions required will depend on the severity of your arthritis stage and the individual response to the treatment. Our goal is to treat people within five weeks however, many people experience significant improvement after just one or two sessions.
Effectiveness Of Osteopathy In Treating Osteoarthritis
Many suggest that osteopathic treatments can be a helpful therapy for managing arthritis symptoms. For example, a 2017 study published in the Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies uncovered that osteopathic treatment led to significant improvements in pain relief and function for patients with knee osteoarthritis. Another study found that osteopathic treatments effectively reduced pain, inflammation and improved range of motion in patients with hip osteoarthritis.
