Osteopathy

Osteopathy

The bones that make up our body are the support that we rely on to go about our daily tasks and thus they bear a lot of the stress of our daily lives. This in turn means that we often have aches and pains as well as medical issues with them long before we see them anywhere else. the[clinic]’s osteopaths works to improve or restore the normal physiological function of interrelated body structures and systems, and, enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself. They use various manual assessment and treatment techniques and modalities to help people of all ages and backgrounds who suffer injury, pain or other health concerns by easing the pain, reducing swelling, improving tissue mobility and promoting efficient healing. The main goal of our care givers is to detect, treat, and prevent your health problems by moving, stretching, and massaging your muscles and joints.

Restricted or constricted areas of the body – (areas which are not moving normally or are “strangled” or “squeezed”) may be present in the following systems:

  • musculoskeletal [back pain...]
  • respiratory [asthma..]
  • cardiovascular [hypertension..]
  • digestive [IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis...]
  • reproductive [Infertility...]
  • nervous [stress, anxiety...]

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners seek to identify and then gently ease the restrictions or constrictions so the body can function normally again. We use a range of different techniques to help improve your bodily function, but we never use drugs or other invasive methods. Everything is always all-natural.

Manual osteopathy is based on 4 basic principles:

  1. Each structure in the body supports the body’s functions. If a structure is damaged, out of place or otherwise not working properly, the body will not function at its best.
  2. The natural flow of the body’s fluids – lymphatic, vascular, and neurological – must be preserved and maintained
  3. The human body is the sum of its parts. Its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems don’t work independently - they work in harmony.
  4. When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherent ability to heal itself.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners recognize that a patient is an integrated whole. When all of the body’s components are in balance, a person is complete and in total health.
