Many readers will have experienced a partial or full joint replacement, not to mention a broken bone due to a fall, sporting injury or accident at some point in their lives. Osteopathy is proven to be beneficial for a speedy recovery and overall health after surgery and also works wonders for both old and new injuries.
Anyone who has had surgery and is experiencing pain, stiffness, reduced balance and coordination, muscle weakness, reduced mobility, low exercise tolerance or reduced independence will benefit from osteopathy when they are discharged from the hospital. Many patients also have problems with restrictions in their hips or shoulders or other areas of the spine. In these cases, the Osteopath can help the joints and muscles involved regain movement in relation to an individual’s body type and physical activities and will work in the best way with the newly operated joint.
