Schedule a No Obligation Consultation for Osteopathy

Osteopathy provides a recognized holistic approach to health care, called osteopathic manual medicine. Osteopathic manual therapists utilize touch and manipulation for the diagnosis and treatment of the body and its tissues, with the intention of aiding the biomechanics of the body towards efficiency. This manual medicine allows the body to restore optimal functioning and help relieve symptoms by looking at the cause of the complaint.

Osteopaths are trained to feel both the subtle and larger physical motions in the body. They can identify areas where there is congestion or restriction and use hands-on treatment to help restore motion. Once motion is improved, inflammation can drain, which positively affects the body’s nervous, circulatory and lymphatic system.

  • Neck and Back pain
