What is Manual Osteopathic Therapy?

Manual Osteopathic Therapy is a therapy that uses hands-on skills for both investigation and treatment of body dysfunctions. The whole body is examined, and mechanical disruptions are treated whether symptoms exist or not. Simply put, let’s say you have right shoulder pain, expect the Manual Osteopathic Therapist to examine the joint and soft tissue around the shoulder and also:

Assess the pelvis, because if imbalanced will drop your shoulder and create a strain;

Check the spinal column, because inflamed nerves can send pain to the shoulder;

Palpate the liver and gall bladder, because dysfunction in those organs radiate pain to the right shoulder and lastly;

Assess the fluid dynamics in and out of the shoulder, because congestion is linked with pain.

Imbalances found are gently treated with techniques that engage the dysfunctional tissue until function is normalized. Joints are mobilized by muscle resisted techniques, soft-tissue is restored to healthier states. Fluids are released from congested areas and gently flushed in the direction of drainage and changes are often felt immediately or shortly after the treatment.

Clients often say it this way:
“Manual Osteopathic Therapy is in between Chiropractic and Massage! Joints are aligned without a thrust and symptoms resolved with more than just soft-tissue manipulation.”
