The Welwyn and Hatfield Practice Physiotherapy, treatment goals and objectives

Common Sport Injuries we Can Help:

  • Achilles Tendon Injuries
  • Back Pain (lumbar or thoracic pain)
  • Biceps Tendonitis
  • Constant Knee Problems
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Foot Pain
  • Hip Pain

  • Wrist Injuries


Issues such as joint dysfunction or soft-tissue restrictions limit the body’s ability to function correctly, directly affecting the degree of performance and may even result in further injury. Osteopathy can help by improving joint mobility, reducing adhesions and soft-tissue restrictions, resulting in structural balance and restored movement leading to enhanced performance.

At Osteopathy Care We Can Help:

  • Overcome injuries
  • Improve performance
  • Prevent further injury


Massage is often used during osteopathic treatment to soften and prepare the person for manipulation. It is helpful as part of pre-event training to minimise injury, and post-event to encourage tissue repair. Massage reduces muscle tension and therefore eases pain and inflammation by stimulating blood supply to the tissues. Passive resisted stretches and trigger point release are also used if appropriate, together with advice on rehabilitative exercises.
