Common Questions 3. Do I need to see my Osteopath for regular maintenance visits?

Many cases of musculo skeletal disturbances that an osteopath treats involve degenerative change of one sort or another. Osteoarthritis of the hips and spine are two such common problems.

By attending the osteopath once each month for treatments involving gentle manipulation and mobilisation of the joints our patients find they need less medication and retain good mobility and an independent life. It is common for osteopaths that have been in practice for many years have several such patients on their list, and lots of patients are treated well into old age finding real benefit and relief from pain due to their maintenance treatments.
