Joint Replacements and osteopaths

Joint Replacements

There are a number of patients who often present to our Osteopathy clinic for the treatment and management of arthritic conditions that may eventually require a joint replacement.  Often these clients will ask the Osteopaths for their opinion on this and whether it is the right thing to do.  This is often a difficult question to answer because every individual is different.  Arthritis can affect people both physically and mentally and the pain it may cause can be extremely draining.

Other than advice from a health professional, it is also important to speak to others that have also had the same procedure.  These are big operations and the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’ must be looked at.  Most importantly, if you do decide to undergo an operation like this, you must be prepared to do the rehabilitation afterwards.  This gives your body the very best chances of healing well and coping with your new joint.

If you would like to come in and talk to one of our osteopaths, call 020 8605 2323
