Striving To Be Toronto's Best Osteopathy And Massage Therapy Clinic
Osteopathy treatment is one of the many services offered at our clinic in Toronto. Our highly skilled Osteopathic Practitioners have a sound knowledge of the body and have years of clinical training and research.
What is Osteopathy treatment?
Osteopathy is an established recognized system of healthcare that 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.
What do Osteopathic manual practitioners do?
Osteopathic manual practitioners palpate the body to seek out areas that are restricted (not moving normally) or constricted (strangled or squeezed). These areas may be in the musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, reproductive or nervous system. By releasing the restrictions, pain is minimized and balance is restored which in turn enables the body to heal itself.
Osteopathic manual practitioners have extensive training in manual osteopathic practice and can assess and treat patients using gentle manual techniques.
Osteopathic manual practitioners do not simply concentrate on treating the problem area, but use manual techniques to balance all the systems of the body to provide optimal health and wellbeing. Ultimately, there is reduced pain and greater mobility which allows the body to heal itself.
- Osteopathic manual practitioners use a broad range of gentle, hands-on techniques, including:
- Myofascial release
- Muscle energy techniques
- Mobilization or manipulation of joints
