Osteopaths in Braintree

Osteopathy identifies, treats, and prevents health problems by moving, stretching, and massaging a person’s muscles and joints. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual depends on their bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue functioning smoothly together.

Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching, and massage with the aim of:

Increasing the mobility of joints
Relieving muscular tension
Reducing pain
Enhancing blood supply to tissues
Helping the body to heal

Osteopaths use a range of techniques, but not medicines or surgery.

Most people who see an osteopath do so for help with conditions that affect the muscles, bones, and joints which include:

Lower back pain
Uncomplicated neck pain (as opposed to neck pain after an injury such as whiplash)
Shoulder pain and elbow pain (for example, tennis elbow)
Arthritis
Problems with the pelvis, hips, and legs
Sports injuries
Muscle and joint pain associated with driving, work, or pregnancy
