Who Can We Treat At Osteovision?



Although generally flexible, babies and toddlers can benefit from osteopathy. The following musculoskeletal conditions are commonly seen in their age groups: torticollis, shoulder muscle tensions from difficult births, imbalanced crawling (bum shuffling or crab crawling) from tension in the hips or legs, and imbalanced walking from tension in the hip or knee causing a foot to turn inwards. Due to their largely cartilaginous bones, flexible joints and muscles, only gentle treatment will be performed on newborns, babies and toddlers.


There are many musculoskeletal conditions that may affect children. These include neck and back pain, in-toeing (pigeon toes), headaches, and body strains related to bumps and falls. Due to their developing bodies, gentle techniques of osteopathy, such as cranial osteopathy, will be used for their treatment.

Growing can cause an imbalance and musculoskeletal changes to occur in your child’s body. Teenagers generally suffer from similar ailments to adults such as constant headaches, back aches,  poor posture and sports injuries. Osteopathy is a great non-invasive option to addressing these conditions. Osteopathic treatment for teens includes gentle techniques such as soft tissue massage and joint articulation.


Our modern working, stress-filled days, can take a toll on our bodies and may result in both upper and lower back pain, neck pain and headaches. Sports injuries, and all types of muscle and joint injury-related pain, can also be treated by an osteopath. Osteopaths will work with your body to target and relieve the tension and pain in the affected areas.

Senior citizens

As we live our lives and get older, it is perfectly normal to get grey hairs and wrinkles. It is also normal for your muscles, bones, joints, and other associated tissues, to change as we age. However, this does not mean that we have to experience increased pain, discomfort and stiffness. Getting older can cause our joint movement to become less flexible and more stiff, due to a decrease in synovial fluid (lubrication in the joints) and a loss of cartilage.

Common conditions affecting the musculoskeletal system in the older population include osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Osteopaths use a wide range of gentle hands-on techniques to help relieve your pain, reduce stiffness and tension, stretch the muscles, and improve joint mobilisation. Many patients find it helpful to talk to an osteopath about how to keep active and the prevention of common problems associated with ageing.
