What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathic philosophy embraces the concept that the human body has the natural ability to heal itself. This ability is optimized when the circulation of all the fluids in the body, as well as nerve conduction, are unimpeded. Osteopathic manual practitioners seek to identify the regions of the body causing biomechanical restrictions or blockages and treat these, allowing the body to do what it is naturally engineered to do.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy is an alternative health care that mobilizes the soft tissues of the body to help decrease pain, improve circulation, joint range-of-motion, nerve conduction and tissue flexibility. Hands-on modalities utilized in osteopathic manual treatment are Muscle Energy techniques, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Joint Mobilization, Myofascial mobilization and Visceral manipulation.
Osteopathic manual treatment can reduce many common issues such as joint fixations, muscle tightness, aches and tension - associated with everyday and occupational stresses. It can also reduce the development of muscular pain patterns following injury and trauma.
