Manual Osteopathy is a hands-on manual therapy treatment method that looks at the way the body functions as whole, rather than viewing its parts or symptoms separately (i.e. a hurt shoulder here, a neck strain there).
It’s based on the philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when its components are in balance. The goal of osteopathy is to restore that proper balance and function, allowing your body to heal through its own natural processes. It works to balance your nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems, improving your range of motion and relieving discomfort or other symptoms.
Common conditions treated with osteopathy include:
Neck and back pain
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
Carpal tunnel syndrome
Post-operative pain or adhesions
Cramps, nausea and intestinal pain
Respiratory problems (i.e. asthma)
In addition to treating current conditions, osteopathy can also be used as a method of injury prevention and in the maintenance of good health.
