About osteopathy and chiropractic treatment

Osteopathy and chiropractic treatments are considered to be types of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). They do not involve the use of surgery or drugs, and treatment is based on soft tissue treatment and manipulation of joints and the spine.

Common sport-related injuries they are used to treat include:
back pain

  • neck pain
  • shoulder pain
  • elbow pain

Chiropractic treatment mainly helps with pain in muscles and joints. Osteopaths use physical manipulation, stretching and massage with the aim of:
increasing the mobility of joints

  • relieving muscle tension
  • enhancing the blood supply to tissues
  • helping the body to heal
