Osteopathic Manual Practice

Osteopaths are functional anatomists who use manual assessment & gentle manipulations to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impulses and the circulation of cardiovascular, digestive, lymphatic and spinal cord fluids. Osteopathy addresses alignment of the soft (fascia, muscles, tendons) and hard tissues (bones, ligaments) so that the body can self regulate and heal.

What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a hands-on manual therapy treatment method that looks at the way the body functions as a whole, rather than viewing its parts or symptoms separately. It's based on the philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when its components are in balance.

Osteopathy utilizes manual assessment and gentle manipulation of the body to improve posture, reduce pain, and promote proper function of the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, visceral and hormonal systems of the body, encouraging your innate healing processes.

What conditions can osteopathy treat?

Osteopathy can be an effective treatment for a variety of illnesses, medical conditions and injuries. The ranges goes from pediatric conditions to pain conditions to systemic problems that involve neurological, digestive or circulatory systems, as well as chronic infectious diseases.

Everyone can benefit from osteopathic evaluation and treatment. Osteopathy employs a holistic (whole body) approach to treatment. It is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative to help patients restore the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic system function, find relief from pain, achieve balance in the body, and improve overall health.

What treatment methods do osteopaths use?

Osteopaths have extensive education and clinical training in manual orthopedic rehabilitation. Effectively assessing and treating patients using a range of manual techniques, osteopaths evaluate the body and employ a holistic approach to functional and structural rehabilitation. The aim of your osteopath is to optimize the self-healing mechanisms of the body.
