Osteopathic Treatment Options


Soft Tissue Manipulation

Soft-tissue techniques consist of all techniques that focus on all body tissue other than the bones. Soft tissues in the body include muscles, tendons and ligaments. Although traditional massage may seem similar to soft tissue osteopathic techniques, they are different. Traditional massage mainly focused on muscles. It involves the use of broad movements. On the other hand, osteopathic techniques are more targeted. The techniques work other tissues other than muscles.

Visceral Manipulation

Visceral manipulation (aka visceral massage) is a hands-on therapy that focuses on your organs. The main area of focus is typically your abdomen. The goal is to relieve tension, improve connective tissue mobility, and encourage better digestive function.

Neurological Techniques

The treatment of the autonomic nervous system (ANS) is an important sequence of the treatment procedures as it is involved in the regulation of the homoeostasis of the body functions, (e.g. cardiovascular system, blood pressure, temperature) Imbalances between the sympathetic and parasympathetic over a longer period of time can lead to various symptoms in the body. The nervous system has an influence on the cardiovascular, visceral, bronchial, and glandular tissues of the body, and osteopathic treatment aims to improve symptoms of malfunction in these tissues by treating the root neurological causes.

Osteopathic Articular Technique

Similar to a chiropractic adjustment, osteopathic manual practitioners use low velocity and moderate to high amplitude forces to carry a dysfunctional joint through its full range of motion, with the therapeutic goal of increasing range of motion. It is a technique that involves repeatedly taking a restricted joint into and out of its barrier to reduce a restriction

Cranial Sacral Osteopathy

Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.


Lymphatic Techniques

The lymphatic system can easily be overlooked, but it has a drastic impact on the immune system. The spleen, lymph nodes, thymus, lymph channels, adenoids, tonsils, and thymus make up the lymphatic system. This mesh of tissues and organs exports toxins, waste, and unnecessary materials via lymph fluid out of the body. Osteopathic manipulative treatment is used to treat somatic dysfunctions and improve immunity, tissue drainage, and circulation.
