Working towards mobility and strength
As we get older, the body loses elasticity – increasing the chance of injuring the soft tissues and bony structures. The body also loses some of its ability to recover from injuries or strains. Osteopaths may help you gain mobility and strength by improving the function and range of motion in your joints, muscles and connective tissues.
Common conditions* that Bendigo Osteo treats in our Over 60′s are:
- back, neck and arm pain
- hip and knee pain and stiffness
- symptoms of arthritis and joint swelling
- symptoms of post surgery recovery
As we age, keeping mobile is the key to your health and independence. The Osteopaths at Bendigo Osteo can also offer advice to help improve mobility.
Massage is also helpful if you are over 60. It helps with fluid retention and swelling of the arms or legs, improves circulation, maintains muscle flexibility and increases our overall psychological feeling of wellness. Massage is also great for scar tissue after surgery. Massage at Bendigo Osteo can be gentle, relaxation or firmer, deep tissue – whatever the person wants.
At Bendigo Osteo we want to make it as easy as possible for you to visit us and care for your health needs. So we provide car parking facilities, including disabled car parks, disabled access throughout premises, we offer concession rates and for those with health cover we have HICAPS facilities so you can claim on the spot. Check out contact details for more information.
*Please note that all people respond differently to treatment and we are not claiming a cure. We regularly see people over the age of 60 with the above listed conditions and enjoy working with them. See Osteopathy and Research for more information.
