Common Conditions seen by our Ringwood Osteopaths

  • Back Pain
    Back pain is a very common condition that our RIngwood Osteopaths see. Back pain can come in many different forms and can be caused from a number of different things, trauma, posture, illness just to name a few. Our osteopaths conduct a full neurological and orthopaedic examination to determine the cause for this discomfort. From there, they use a range of different techniques to try and help relieve this pain.
  • Joint and Muscular Pain
    Joint and muscular pain can present in a number of different ways. It can be a persistent dull ache, a sharp and excruciating pain, stiffness and tightness or even present as muscular weakness and dysfunction. A lot of people suffer from this every day and claim that it is ‘normal’. These types of pain are not normal. These often indicate a problem in the musculoskeletal system and can lead to further issues if not assessed properly.

 

Common Conditions Continued:

  • Headaches
    Headaches are a common complaint seen by our osteopaths. Headaches can be quite annoying and even cause disruptions in a person’s everyday life. There are different types of headaches that range in severity and how they affect people. Tension headaches are one of the most common, causing a pressure like sensation around the head. Migraines are one of the more severe and can cause neurological symptoms like blurry vision, dizziness and sensitivity to light and sound. In osteopathy, the practitioner will address the underlying issue, whether it be muscular, spinal or nerve.
  • Pregnancy
    Pregnancy usually is a beautiful time in a person’s life but as the pregnancy progresses there is the possibility of it putting strain on the body’s musculoskeletal system. This strain can eventually cause pain, discomfort, fatigue, nerve pain and much more. The osteopaths at our Ringwood location have treated pregnant patients with low back pain, hip discomfort and even neurological symptoms.
