Osteopathy is a branch of medicine that focuses on holistic, drug free and non invasive hands-on technique. The osteopathic manipulative treatment can help restore proper motion in joints and in turn, can relieve the tension in the muscles as the body heals itself. Osteopathy views the body as a whole including the inner organs, muscles, and skeletal system.
During your first visit Osteopathic manual practitioner will ask about your health history and perform an assessment and a treatment that focuses on all aspects of the body including the skeleton, joints, ligaments and muscles, but also the nerves, circulation, connective tissues and organs.
The patient is assessed and treated as a whole unique unit.
Although the techniques are gentle, you might experience some soreness for 24-48 hours after visiting your Osteopathic manual practitioner.
Staying hydrated, eating proper nutrition with a moderate activity are all important as a follow up after your osteopathy treatment.
Your therapist will develop a treatment plan based on the findings from your initial assessment and treatment and discuss it with you.
