Osteotathy

Osteopathic manipulative medicine is a holistic hands-on treatment approach that includes an understanding that there is a close relationship between the structure and function of the body, that the body functions as a unit, and the body is capable of self-healing.

The word Osteopathy is derived from two Greek words meaning bone and dysfunction. The founder of Osteopathy, Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917), chose this name to highlight how the structure of the skeleton is vital in correct function of the body’s systems, and that misalignment of bones can cause dysfunction. He built the unique discipline that focuses on treating the disease rather than simply the symptoms.

In 1907, Charles Still, son of A.T. Still described his father’s philosophy that the body should operate smoothly into old age, if properly maintained as every living organism possesses the ability to produce all of the necessary chemicals and materials to cure itself of ailments.

Osteopathy focuses on freeing the body from restriction, strengthening the musculoskeletal system and reinforcing its relationship with the organs, and improving the nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems.

When Is Treatment Indicated?

Because osteopathic medicine is a healthcare system rather than a modality, its uses and applications are varied. Generally, many patients initially seek osteopathic care for:

·       back and neck pain,

·        sciatica,

·       headache,

·       pain in peripheral joints,

·       scoliosis,  and other common musculoskeletal problems.

However, since there are numerous evaluation and manual treatment approaches, many health problems can be and have been successfully addressed with osteopathic manipulation.

Osteopathy can also play a significant role in pain management or when used in conjunction with medical treatment. Osteopathic treatment is very beneficial to reduce back pain during pregnancy and also to help prepare the body for birth. In addition, there is a wide variety of gentle non-manipulative techniques for use on children.

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance

 Most people are familiar with the idea of joint and muscle restrictions causing tightness, pain and limited movement in their bodies, but don’t consider the role of their organs.  It is common place for people to go to their physio, chiro, or massage therapist to treat pain and alignment issues; unfortunately, many times these practitioners may just be treating the outer shell of the problem if they aren’t considering the mobility of your organs in your alignment and movement patterns. Visceral Manipulation is the practice of an experienced therapist using his or her hands to move and release fascial restrictions in your abdomen and pelvis to encourage the normal movement and function of your internal organs. It is a form of functional techniques applied directly to the viscera and their fascial attachments, allows for the restoration and maintenance of normal functioning of the internal organs and their neighbouring structures, both visceral and somatic. This allows one to move away from dysfunction towards better health.
