Osteopathic Treatment

Osteopathy is a non-medical manual treatment grounded on the deep knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and neurology. Practitioners of Osteopathic manipulative medicine follow the theory that imbalances in the human structure contribute to, or are directly related to, the development and/or maintenance of disease. Osteopathic practitioners recognize the fact that the human body is self-regulating and self-healing and will strive for health if given the chance. The role of the Osteopathic manipulative practitioner is to encourage this self-healing capacity through manual treatment – to convert the physical into the physiological. Osteopathy’s main contribution to the medical sciences is this unique viewpoint and understanding of the relationships between disease and dysfunction.

Osteopathy treats a wide variety of musculoskeletal problems include:

  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Lower Back, Neck, Shoulder, Hip, Leg, Knee, Foot, Ankle, Arm, and Hand pain, etc.

Osteopathy is founded one of the safe and effective applications of the following principles:

  • A person acts as a complete dynamic unit of function including the concept of unity mind-body-spirit.
  • The body possesses self-healing, regulating, and defense mechanisms.
  • Structure and function are interrelated at all levels.
  • Rational treatment is based on understanding and using the three previous principles.
