WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
Osteopathy consists of observation, palpation and hands-on methods to contribute to health.
Helping the body find balance is one of the key goals of osteopathic manual therapy. All body structures are actually interconnected on an anatomical level. By direct or indirect manipulation, osteopathic principles help the body to heal itself and promote better health, holistically.
In osteopathic manual therapy, we are fully attentive to the body and work to first identify the primary factors involved in a physical problem, then restore the areas in the body that are restricted or constricted.
Osteopathic care can often be effective even when symptoms are not responsive to other types of treatment. As osteopathic manual therapists, we help you take care of your body as a whole. Helping you to feel free from pain, return to health and to your regular activities is the ultimate goal of osteopathic manual therapy.
