We are registered osteopaths based in Hemel Hempstead offering treatment to people of all ages that have a wide range of aches, pains and sports injuries.
Back pain is something that just about everyone suffers with at some point in their life. It may be an ache after gardening, DIY or after a long drive. But for many it can be more persistent and can effect daily life.
Neck pain can take on different forms depending on which structures in the neck are involved. Shoulder pain and stiffness that prevents a full range of movement is common, particularly for the middle-aged.
Sports medicine is a natural outgrowth of osteopathic medicine, with its focus on the musculoskeletal system, exercise, health and fitness. The treatment helps to maximise the function of the body during sport.
Sports massage should play an important part in the life of any sportsman or woman whether they are injured or not. It is also an important tool in monitoring muscle tone helping an athlete perform at their very best.
Osteopathy can also help with other varieties of arthritis including Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Rheumatoid arthritis is generally a systemic disease affecting not just joints but the whole body.
