Are you experiencing pain from arthritis?

Arthritis is the inflammation of a joint, resulting in joint pain and dysfunction. However, what you may not know, is that it’s not one singular disease. In fact, there are hundreds of types of arthritis, with the most common types being:

  1. Osteoarthritis (OA) – often resulting in joint pain through the hands, spine, knees and hips; osteoarthritis is the most common variety experienced throughout the U.K. Known as the ‘wear and tear’ arthritis, you can be predisposed to it if you have a family history of OA. However, family history of OA is not necessary in order to encounter it during your lifetime. 
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis – although less common than osteoarthritis, this variation still affects a large portion of the population. It is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease, where the body’s immune system attacks healthy cells by mistake. Therefore resulting in joint damage, which can lead to inflammation, pain and deformity.
  3. Gout – another autoimmune disease, gout occurs as a result of too much uric acid in the body. This can cause several symptoms such as joint pain, redness and for some people – extreme swelling for instance.
  4. Spondyloarthritis – this is a form that affects the spine, and sometimes the arms and legs. It presents as lower back pain for many patients, but symptoms can differ between cases.
  5. Fibromyalgia – A widespread pain that affects the whole body. This form of arthritis can cause stiffness, pain, fatigue, depression, headaches, sleeping problems and more.

Osteopathy for arthritis pain

Whether you’re suffering from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune issue or perhaps a variety not listed above; the good news is, osteopathy may help.

The stiffness and joint pain associated with arthritis can remove any desire to move and exercise. However, with the assistance of your osteopath here at our Rainham or Maidstone clinics, we’ll get you moving again with less pain. 

Most importantly, your osteo here at Tim Wood Healthcare will work with you to decrease your pain. We’ll use a combination of hands-on osteopathic techniques such as soft tissue massage and mobilisation, as well as exercise rehabilitation programs to get you moving safely. Our holistic, whole-body approach will allow your joints to release and move freely, decreasing pain and inflammation in the process.

Went to the clinic in a lot of pain from a back injury. After seeing other reviews praising Lauren, at least one mentioning she was gentle, I booked an appointment. Last thing I felt I needed was someone cracking my back! The other reviews were spot on! She was gentle, professional, and caring. Managing to get the pain under control, and recommending some gentle exercises to do at home to help things along between sessions. Within a short space of time I was feeling much better. The clinic is very nice, clean and tidy, easy to find. Parking hasn't been an issue. Would highly recommend to anyone

I felt very low due to ongoing breathing problems so I booked an hour massage with Sarah. It was a wonderful experience, Sarah was very friendly, discussed my medical concerns and suitable treatments. I will be definitely booking another massage in the near future.
