What Can Manual Osteopathy Help With?
Osteopathic care is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy designed to improve the health of all body systems including the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
Osteopathy is one of the fastest-growing healthcare professions in North America and, at its core, is about mobility on every level of who you are, including joints, muscles, organs, connective tissues, and your nervous system. Osteopathy was developed in the late 1800s and has spread across the globe, developing a reputation for efficient and effective treatment of a wide variety of pathologies.
Every structure in your body has a way it is supposed to move – hearts beat, knees bend, lungs expand and contract. Some of these movements we are aware of, but others aren’t obvious at first. Most people don’t check their blind spot while driving and think to themselves “Wow! My liver sure is rotating well today!”. But the motions of our internal organs are just as important as our joints and represent one of the most commonly untreated parts of our body.
When our body stops moving the way it is designed to, this is when we begin to adapt. Adaptations are both normal and healthy, but of course, there is a limit to how much we as humans can adapt. Often times chronic pains and ailments are the results of underlying tensions within our body for which we are chronically adapting. It is the efficient identification and removal of these tensions and strains that make osteopathy as effective as it is.
When you see our Osteopathic Manual Practitioner, Ben, you can expect a thorough assessment of your entire body, as he looks for changes in the firing of your nervous system, in the tone of your muscles and their reaction to stimuli, and in the motion of all structures of your body.
