Osteopathy


Osteopathy is a therapeutic method that restores the holistic integrity of the whole body.  Osteopathic practitioners use various hands-on techniques to fortify and balance bodily systems to promote good health and general wellbeing.

The osteopathy’s principles are based on the relations between structure and function of body as well as  understanding the connections between all the tissues, fluids and systems of the body.
Osteopathy treats a wide range of painful and debilitating disorders by concentrating on the body’s musculoskeletal, nervous, circulatory and lymphatic systems. These include:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain (knee, hip, wrist and so on)
  • Repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel, tennis elbow
  • Whiplash and accident trauma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Sciatica and Disc injuries
  • Kyphosis and Scoliosis
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
  • TMJ (Jaw) problems

Osteopathic particular technique

  • Reduces muscle spasms near a joint
  • Eases neurological irritations around a joint
  • Makes joints more mobile
  • Reduces pain and discomfort

Soft Tissue Therapy

  • Aids in the circulation of the body’s fluids (such as blood and lymph), reduces harmful fluid retention, and boosts the body’s immune system.
  • Myofascial release: fascia are the fibrous sub-cutaneous tissues connecting muscles with muscle groups and other organs in the body. Practitioners evaluate the fascia to find areas of restriction and then apply soft tissue manipulation to relieve tension.
    This has several benefits:

    • Relief of muscle pain, spasm
    • Deactivation of trigger points
    • Enhancement of range of movement and flexibility
    • Healing scar tissue and adhesions
    • Improvement in postural awareness
    • Regulation of muscle tone
    • General relaxation

Muscle Energy Therapy


Proven to be an effective method in the rehabilitation process:

  • Improves range of motion
  • Eases muscle spasms and lengthens shortened or spastic muscles
  • Fortifies weakened ligaments
  • Improves muscle strength and range of motion
  • Realigns muscle groups to restore a full range of motion
