What is osteopathy?
Osteopathy is based on the idea that everything in your body is connected, and all the body’s systems interrelated. Considered a natural medicine, osteopathy applies both the knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the body to offer relief and facilitate healing from all types of diseases, disorders, and dysfunctions.
Osteopaths work with the understanding that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when all of its systems are balanced and functioning properly. Osteopaths look for the causes of dysfunction, treating the body as a whole.
What do osteopathic manual practitioners do?
Osteopathic manual therapists base their care on a holistic model, understanding that there is a connection between physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being. They use a gentle “hands-on” or manual approach during treatment to identify the root cause of what’s troubling you. Once they pinpoint the cause, they work to restore order to all your body systems. This includes your musculoskeletal, nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and reproductive systems.
Osteopathic manual practitioners believe dysfunction in one area of the body can present symptoms and dysfunction elsewhere in the body, a principle known as “tensegrity.” Osteopaths consider the body as a whole as more than a collection of its parts. They believe that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself, and work to facilitate and create space for the body systems.
How can osteopathy help me feel better?
When the body is balanced, it is in homeostasis (a state of optimal functioning and stability.) When the body is out of balance, homeostasis is interrupted and dysfunction happens.
Osteopathy can help restore balance to the systems in your body to help relieve or prevent pain and discomfort. This can be amplified to other areas and affect multiple systems. Osteopaths treat the individual as a whole by integrating the mind, body, and spirit to help you feel better.
