Osteopathy

Natural therapy based on removing the underlying causes of pain and illness, rather than managing symptoms

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy was founded in 1874 by Dr. Andrew Still, M.D. Osteopathy is a natural therapy based on removing the underlying causes of pain and illness, rather than managing symptoms. This allows the body’s inherent self-healing ability to resume. Symptoms, whether involving pain, restriction of movement, digestive dysfunction, fatigue, headaches or migraines, stress, etc. often represent the end result and can be far removed from the mitigating factors. There may be several factors that contributed to the resultant distress.

The Osteopathic practitioner examines the complex interconnectedness of the whole body’s main systems, as a single unit. A highly trained sense of touch, biomechanical analysis, and palpatory motion assessments of different tissue layers, are used to identify and correct structural imbalance and other restrictions within the body. When all the components are in balance, the body’s self-healing ability is restored and continues to function without requiring further intervention.

Who can benefit from Osteopathy?

  •  People of all ages suffering with digestive disorders, or chronic illness.
  • Anyone with repetitive strain injuries, or post-accident.
  • Newborns, infants, toddlers, children of all ages.

Osteopathic Treatment utilizes a multitude of technique approaches that are not limited to but include:

1. Myofascial, Connective Tissue & Neuromuscular Treatment – returns muscles and fascia to their original length, thus removing strain from joints and organs;

2. Cranial Sacral Therapy  – attends to the underlying biorhythm and motion of the dural membranes and fluid which surround and invest the brain and spinal cord, and which influence cellular exchange throughout the whole body;

3. Visceral technique and Neurolymphatic reflex treatment- relieves stressful forces acting on internal organs or their suspensory ligaments, which improves mobility & blood flow, and helps the organ function more effectively;

4. Oscillatory Osteoarticular Treatment- are gentle rhythmical realignment of bony structures to encourage efficient weight bearing and movement, and normalize associated function;

5. Muscle Energy Techniques – relaxes tight muscles and reeducates the nervous system, which controls muscle activity and greatly influences circulation.

Other technique principles that are utilized in osteopathic treatment include Lymphatic drainage, Trigger point and ganglia reflex treatment, Ligamentous articular release, and Counter strain. If you would like to learn more
