Osteopathy is a non-invasive manual medicine that uses gentle manipulations to help regain normal functioning of all the body systems, it focuses on the health of the whole body and not just the injured or affected part. Osteopathic treatment includes a thorough assessment of the bodies structure to determine where sources of pain and dysfunction are coming from. The belief is that if the structure is not in proper alignment then nothing in the body can function optimally, from our musculoskeletal system to the functioning of our internal systems. Treatment aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems using various adjustive techniques.
Osteopathic treatment is appropriate for any age from new born to elderly and can help with many conditions from back pain, headaches, tendinitis, digestive issues, pregnancy related issues, to colic in babies
