Whether you are still working or retired, it is important for your body to function optimally to allow you to carry out the activities you enjoy, as well as maintaining quality of life and a sense of wellbeing.

As we get older our bodies experience wear and tear.  Muscles tighten and joints stiffen as the body loses some of it's flexibility. This can impact on the body's ability to adapt and leave you more prone to injury.  You may also be carrying historic injuries, postural strain or may have developed arthritis.  These can all lead to stiffness and pain which impact on your mobility, ability to perform the activities you enjoy and ultimately your independence.

Whether you want to keep up with your grandchildren, take up new sports, go travelling or just maintain your everyday activities such as gardening and managing the housework, our Osteopaths will work with you to formulate an individualised treatment plan tailored to help you achieve your goals.

The aim of treatment is to help you to achieve the best you can from your body through reducing/alleviating pain and increasing mobility and balance.
Examination and treatment are non-invasive, gentle and safe.  Our Osteopaths will use a combination of techniques depending on your presenting problem and any other health issues you may have. These may include gentle stretching, articulation, massage and Cranial Osteopathy.  Cranial Osteopathy is a gentle type of osteopathy for all ages, but because it is very gentle it is well suited to treating the older person.  
At North Norfolk Osteopaths our treatment also involves rehabilitation, self-care, exercise and postural advice to aid recovery, promote health and prevent symptoms recurring.
