What is Osteopathic Manual Therapy?
The object of Osteopathic Manual Therapy (commonly referred to as Osteo, or Osteopathy, or Osteopath in Calgary) is to re-establish proper body functions by treating causes of pain and dysfunction. Osteopathic Manual Therapy is a patient-centered approach to health where they use skilled palpation and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics guide the osteopath to assess and restore balance within and between all the systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral.
The Osteopathic Manual Therapist uses a wide array of manual approaches to reduce and resolve strains, stress and dysfunction in all areas of the body. Through hands on treatment, the goal is to remove restrictions to vascular, neural and biomechanical mechanisms and ultimately support the natural healing mechanism by promoting auto regulation.
Patients of all ages, from babies to the elderly can benefit from Osteopathic Manual Therapy. Our Osteopath in Calgary also treats a variety of patients, and almost everyone will experience some relief from treatment. However, some of the common types of conditions or injuries that Osteopathic treatments can help with are post concussions, lower back injuries, TMJ dysfunction, sinusitis, and repetitive strain injuries. Both of our current practitioners specialize in family osteopathy and osteopathy for pregnancy.
