The joints are the working surfaces of the musculoskeletal ensemble. They are covered in the gleamy strong hyaline cartilage and are full nerve endings in the surrounding tissue. What could go wrong? Sadly as we know quite a lot! They need a sophisticated arrangement of support services to help them move and take the weight off the body as it grows, adapts to external forces, becomes misaligned, suffers injuries and ages.
The muscular system needs strength and coordination to enable balanced graceful movement. Osteopaths watch these wonderful joints and try to help them through the daily grind. Things can go wrong in an instant or gradually become weakened. Whatever the cause we are at the end of the phone to help advise on how to make the best of what you have.
