Treatments

We seek to discover and treat the root cause of your pain or disorder using different modalities.

Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy is a collection of hands-on therapies used for the treatment of chronic muscle and joint pain. Clinicians use a number of different techniques. Some of the most commonly used techniques are mobilizations, visceral and soft tissue therapies.

Manual osteopathy is based on a few governing principles. One of which is that the structure of the body governs its function. This means that when the muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and bones are imbalanced, in pain or injured, the body will not function as it needs to for health. Another principle of manual osteopathy is, the body has the capacity to heal itself as long as it is in optimal condition to do so.

Why choose herbs for healing?2019-12-16T16:43:35+00:00

What are some of the benefits of Manual Osteopathy?2019-12-16T16:42:22+00:00

Manual Osteopathy increases joint mobility, decreases pressure on spinal nerve roots, reduced pain sensitivity, increases endorphins (natural pain killer), activates paraspinal reflexes (helps the body recover from tightened muscles) and inhibits somato-somatic refelxes (high activation causes excessive pain). OMT also decreases heart rate and blood pressure and decreases anxiety and depression.

What techniques may be used during my appointment?2019-12-16T16:45:06+00:00

Some of the most common techniques are mobilizations, which is the movement of thee joints and muscles in their ranges of motion to increase flexibility and improve blood flow. Muscle energy techniques are used to reduce muscle spasm and improve flexibility. Soft tissue techniques focus on the fascia and visceral components of the body.
