Manual Osteopathy is a form of hands-on therapy with a primary focus of restoring function and reducing or eliminating pain by directly addressing the root causes.
Manual Osteopathy is divided into four main sub-disciplines:
- Osteo-articular adjustments,
- Fascial release,
- Cranial-sacral techniques and
- Visceral Manipulation
Manual Osteopaths are trained in all four disciplines and use each technique depending on the patient.
Manual Osteopaths treat the underlying cause of pain by addressing stiffness in muscles and joints and increasing range of motion for people. They improve posture and alignment addressing root causes of pain. They can target the function of the organs, and greatly improve digestion, women’s health issues such as menstrual pain, peri and post menopausal symptoms. Manual Osteopathy is also a great treatment for headaches and migraines.
