Osteopathy for Seniors
The team at Bodywell Healthcare are dedicated to helping seniors stay active and independent and improve their overall health and feeling of wellbeing.
Keeping mobile is the key to your health, happiness and independence. As we get older, the body loses elasticity, increasing the chance of injuring the soft tissues and bony structures. The body also loses some of its ability to recover from injuries or strains. The effects of ageing on the body may cause symptoms such as:
- Poor balance
- General stiffness
- Back, neck and arm pain
- Hip and knee pain and stiffness
- Arthritis and joint swelling.
Osteopathic treatment aims to reduce joint stiffness and improve mobility, circulation and balance. Our osteopaths may also offer advice on exercises to increase balance and strength, gentle stretches to help maintain joint flexibility, education to assist in preventing injuries and guidance about outdoor exercising and other physical activities.
