Osteopathy Treatment

Our Approach: We help people in pain be pain free

Allowing the body’s intrinsic tendency for self-healing without medicine

The perception of pain is not merely a response to physical injury, but is also related to the patient’s own emotional framework as well as their physical and social environments. An Osteopathic Manual Practitioner works to build a trusting relationship with their patient to help understand if there are other non-physical factors that could be contributing to their chronic pain condition. This allows the practitioner to develop a more comprehensive pain management and reduction plan to help their patient find relief.

What is involved in an Osteopathic Treatment Session

You will find that a visit to an Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will include osteopathic manipulative treatments (OMT), the hands-on procedures a practitioner will use to manipulate muscles, joints, and other tissues. In addition, you’ll probably also be asked questions pertaining to topics such as your eating habits and diet, sleep habits, exercise routines, work culture, and your family life. This more holistic approach is designed to help discover issues that could be impeding your recovery.

Developing a comprehensive pain management and reduction plan

When there are non-physical issues that could be contributing to chronic pain, your Osteopathic Manual Practitioner will suggest alternate forms of treatment working with other healthcare professionals to come up with appropriate treatment strategies.

Osteopathy is an established recognized system of healthcare which relies on manual contact for assessment and treatment. It integrates the whole body, including the mind with emphasis on allowing the body’s intrinsic tendency for self-healing without pharmacological use.

Osteopathy views a person as a single unit comprised of body, mind, and spirit. In the osteopathic perspective, one needs to treat the whole person. Instead of viewing the body as a machine, osteopathy looks at pain as the result of complex interactions between physical factors as well as psychological and social factors, also referred to as the “biopsychosocial” approach. The perception of pain is not merely a response to physical injury, but is also related to the patient’s own emotional framework as well as their physical and social environments.
