Osteopathy for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes a person to have widespread pain over the body, in particular within the muscles and other soft tissues, such as tendons and ligaments.
Other fibromyalgia symptoms include stiffness of muscles, fatigue, low mood, tiredness / poor sleep, and memory cloudiness. The symptoms can be aggravated by negative comments such as “it is all in the head” from others, cold and damp weather conditions, stress whether at home or work, poor sleeping patterns or trauma.
It is more common in young and middle-aged females and can often be present with other unrelated body-wide rheumatic complaints. It does also occur in other age groups as well as men and children.
The best treatment protocol for fibromyalgia includes stretching, massage, heat and exercise, and stress management, all of which we can provide and advise on.
Improved sleep is also critical, and Osteopathic treatment to aid sleep, and reviewing sleeping protocols, will help in this regard.

Alan and the team are wonderful. Have been a patient here for 2 years and followed them through both sites. The place is clean, am treated with a smile and care and always come out happy and feeling a few years younger. I would have no reservation recommending Arc Osteopathy for anyone looking for an Osteopath in Croydon.
Alan is a very friendly, professional & knowledgeable osteopath. In my case, my neck was feeling much better after the first (same day) appointment and back to normal after a second appointment a week later. Alan also provided video exercises to improve my condition. I will highly recommend the services of Arc Osteopathy! Thank you, Alan!
Early last year I was having terrible pain in one of my knees and could barely walk. Over a number of months Alan treated me and showed me what exercises to do and what to avoid. I am now signed off from treatment and enjoying doing everything I did before and more. Thanks to Alan.
I met Alan in 2013 when I had bruises my ribs. Thanks to him, I was able to climb to the top of Mount Kinabalu in South East Asia two months later. Since then, I swear by him. I cannot recommend him enough. I drive an hour each way to see him for a 30 min session. He is the best osteopath in London.
