Osteopathy can be used to treat many musculoskeletal problems including pain arising from discs, muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments. It is a widely used therapy for generalised pain in areas such as the back, neck, shoulder, hip, and knee, for dealing with acute muscle spasms, fatigue, nerve pain, tension and posture-related headaches.

Osteopathy has also been found to be effective in the rehabilitation of sports injuries including sprains, tears and tendonitis.
