Osteopathy is a “total body” system of manual therapy. Based on bio-mechanical principles, which use a wide range of techniques to treat muscular and skeletal problems and other functional disorders of the body. It uses skilled, specific, hands-on techniques, including but not limited to manipulation/mobilization, used by the manual therapist to diagnose and treat soft tissues and joint structures for the purpose of modulating pain; increasing range of motion; reducing or eliminating soft tissue inflammation; inducing relaxation; improving contractile and non-contractile tissue repair, extensibility, and/or stability; facilitating movement; and improving function.
Osteopathic manual practitioners assess and treat your body as a whole because:
- symptoms sometimes show up in a different part of your body from where the problem actually is
- there may be several factors contributing to the symptoms you experience
Practitioners go through many years of training to develop their highly palpatory skills. Osteopathic evaluation and treatment is based on this theory and as a result is unique to other forms of therapy. Osteopaths recognize the fact that the human body is self-regulating and self-healing and will strive for health if given the chance. The role of the Osteopath is to encourage this self-healing capacity through manual treatment to convert the physical into the physiological.
Osteopathy is an effective treatment approach that restores patient health with an emphasis on body biomechanics.
