Osteopathy can help relieve issues within the shoulder, hip and knee joints, increasing blood flow and encouraging your body to repair itself. We can check muscles and joints, working to identify the cause of your pain and using our expertise to design the right treatment plan for you.
What symptoms might you be experiencing?
Shoulder, hip and knee pain can cause you to experience the following issues:
- Pain going up and down stairs
- Pain when raising your arm above your head
- Difficulty showering or washing your hair
- Knees giving way when walking
This can become increasingly debilitating – we completely understand the difficulty of living with chronic pain and a lack of mobility. You don’t have to put up with pain. We can provide relief and help you on the road to recovery.
What may be causing your pain?
- Inflammation of a tendon (tendonitis)
- Compression of the meniscus (protective pads in your knees)
- Muscle weakness
- Tears within the soft tissue surrounding the joint
- Joint misalignment
It’s important you see a professional to diagnose the cause of your pain – you could be aggravating your injury if you don’t. Talk to the team and we’ll carry out an in-depth consultation to get to the bottom of your shoulder, hip or knee pain.

Create more room
and increase range of motion in a joint that is compressed. We can use decompression and traction techniques, articulation and manipulation techniques and balanced ligamentous tension (BLT) techniques. This helps release any ligaments that could be causing pain or reducing the joint’s range of motion.
Strengthen the joint.
We can give you strengthening exercises that will help repair injured soft tissue structures surrounding a joint. This prevents further issues within the joint itself.

solving year-long knee pain
Find out how we helped our patient combat severe knee pain once and for all.
Our patient, a carer working in the NHS, came to see us after suffering knee pain for around a year. He had a passion for long-distance motorcycling, but found he was able to do this less and less as it worsened his knee pain. After a long ride, he would be in so much pain he wouldn’t be able to walk.
After just a few sessions, the patient’s knee pain had improved greatly and he only ever felt it very slightly after a long motorbike ride. Now, he no longer feels any knee pain and can enjoy his passion once again! He visits us every three to four months for maintenance treatment, and does exercises we’ve given him to prevent any further knee issues.
What did our patient think?
Treated my knee/leg pain very effectively. A year-long problem has effectively been resolved after three to four sessions and I now know what I can do to help prevent it from coming back. Professional and friendly service. Thank you!
