Manual osteopaths consider that the whole body is interconnected (holistic), therefore finds and treats the root cause of your pain by finding restrictions and applying osteopathic techniques to regain proper function. These techniques include osteopathic joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, visceral (organs), and soft tissue therapy. The ultimate goal is to get your body back in alignment; when the body is in alignment we have health if not the result is disease.
Along with the manual therapy session, manual osteopaths look at your entire way of living and lifestyle to help you find possible external causes for your pain and give advice for long-term relief.
Sessions usually span from 45mins-1h with manual therapy applied the entire time, except for the initial evaluation which requires time for assessment.
