Manual Osteopathy Treatment in Edmonton
Osteopathy is a manual therapy that promotes health and healing throughout the body. Focusing on the joints, muscles, and spine, osteopathy works to relieve pain, tension, and stress. These are the root causes of many conditions and illnesses.
Osteopathic therapy takes a holistic approach to healing. This allows for the treatment of a range of somatic (bodily) issues.
Hands-On Osteopathic Diagnosis and Treatments
Osteopathy treats somatic dysfunctions in the body. It leans toward treating the root causes of chronic pain, inflammation, and illness. It is based on the belief that the body has natural healing defense and healing mechanisms. Promoting the function of these mechanisms can resolve lingering issues and provide preventative care for better overall health.
- Reduces pain
- Restores a greater range of motion to the body
- Resolves postural problems
- Improves body functions such as healing and circulation
- Resolves digestive issues
- Lowers stress levels
There are many other positive benefits osteopathy can provide. The treatment plan varies for each client. Every osteopathic treatment starts with a hands-on assessment and whole-body evaluation. Once a therapist has a baseline of symptoms and possible causes, he or she works to improve bodily functioning using the many methods included in osteopathic healing.
