Arthritis Australia can be used as a general resource for those suffering arthritis.

Many people with wear and tear (or arthritis) in their joints are not aware of the relief osteopathic treatment can provide. Even those waiting for hip or knee replacements could benefit from osteopathy.

The pain is caused as the cartilage, or padding between the bones, begins to wear away and the muscles around the affected joint tighten up to protect it from further damage.

Osteopathy can gently relieve the muscle tightness, thus lessening the pressure on the joint, reducing the pain and improving mobility. Treatment will also involve ensuring that other parts of the body are working well to minimise the stress on the damaged joint.
