Osteopathy is a hands-on approach to treating muscle and joint pain, dysfunction or injury. Osteopaths use a variety of manual therapy techniques to help restore mobility, reduce pain, promote recovery from injury and improve function and health. They use a combination of joint techniques, soft tissue release, craniosacral techniques and visceral techniques to achieve this.
A treatment will include a thorough history, an overall physical exam and hands-on manual therapy to correct the areas of the body that are predisposing the person to the injury, as well as a home exercises to facilitate your recovery.
