Osteopathic Manual Therapeutic Medicine
Our classical osteopath provides you with a holistic assessment & treatment, which aims to correct the cause of your disease, be it muscular, bony alignment, neurological, vascular (blood supply or drainage), or visceral (coming from the organ fields). Treatment uses gentle oscillatory motions, throughout all joints, to regain your body’s innate balance, allowing it to tap into its own maximum healing capacity.
What is Osteopathic care?
Osteopathy is a manual therapy that uses gentle movements to correct structural and postural imbalances. Through treatment, structural dysfunctions are corrected to improve flexibility and movement of the spine and limbs to relieve obstruction of nerve and blood vessels. In turn, the body is able to heal, repair damaged tissue and reduce pain. The primary goal is to treat the underlying cause of pain or disease rather than the symptom.
Who can benefit from Osteopathic treatment?
Osteopathic care can benefit a wide range of populations from newborns, expecting mothers, the elderly, and everyone in between. Individuals should seek an Osteopath if they have musculoskeletal pain, visceral dysfunction or any of the following complaints:
