Since in osteopathy there is focus on all body systems, including emotional states and wellbeing, the elderly individual is often helped overcome situations where they may have perhaps been previously classified as ‘untreatable’ or ‘having to live with’ their present condition. Whilst there is very little one can do to reverse degenerative or arthritic changes in the body, gentle mobilisation as well as advice, may help the person regain their confidence and ease pain in areas where movement was restricted.

Osteopaths are very aware of potential side effects of manipulation, and therefore carefully select techniques to suit the particular individual.
