What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a hands-on therapeutic approach that supports and enhances your body’s natural inherent healing ability. It does this by restoring harmony within your mind-body connection through touch. Osteopathic practitioners understand that physical problems can be caused by emotional stress and strain, and work to help you find the source of your problem. Osteopathy uses gentle manual techniques to help decrease or eliminate pain and to resolve symptoms. These include a variety of techniques such as:

  • Soft-tissue techniques

  • Myofascial release

  • Scar tissue techniques

  • Craniosacral therapy

  • Visceral manipulation

  • Muscle Energy Technique (contract-relax type techniques)

  • Neuromuscular re-education

  • Manual cueing for exercise form

  • Assisted stretching & supported movement 

Each treatment is tailored towards the individual’s specific needs and generally involves little to no discomfort. Osteopathy offers a holistic approach to understanding pain and view the body as a whole rather than isolated symptoms.


Complex Presentations and Patient Advocacy

As part of your treatment planning, your practitioner can provide a letter for you, your doctor, or other healthcare provider outlining your symptoms of concern, to share assessment findings, and to provide information about those issues that may be addressed with osteopathic treatment, as well as those that may require further investigation. A referral letter can be provided if further medical assessment and care is warranted, or if you would benefit from seeing another healthcare practitioner for collaborative care.
