Osteopathy is a gentle hands-on manual therapy that uses principle-based techniques to help the body to selfheal and self-regulate.
Osteopathic treatment helps to realign the body’s structure such as bones, muscle ligaments and fascia, encouraging passageways to open for nerve, artery, veins and lymphatics. This allows a healthy flow of nutrition (blood) to and from all anatomy in the body. Once the body’s framework is balanced the body will start its own healing process.
Osteopathy is considered an art since no treatment is the same just like no body is the same. Using an in depth knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, assessment, mechanical principles and palpation skills we have the expertise and ability to correct asymmetries and restrictions allowing the osteopathic manual practitioner to treat the cause and not just the symptom.
Initial Assessment – The practitioner will go over the health history in detail to get to know and understand the patient and any signs and symptoms of the condition. A thorough assessment is performed to establish the best approach to treatment.
Treatment- To start treatment a small assessment is performed to better understand what is presenting the day of, and to see the progress from the treatment before. The treatment follows basic principles to help the body to restore where health has been lost.
