WHAT IS OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATION?
Osteopathic Manipulation is one of the fastest-growing sectors in health care. It takes a whole-body approach where physicians consider not just the body, but the mind and spirit as well. Osteopathic Manipulation is a treatment used to improve joint range of motion and balance tissue and muscle mechanics in order to relieve pain.

HOW DOES OSTEOPATHIC MANIPULATION WORK?
Through gentle movements, the osteopathic physician manipulates the musculoskeletal region and joints using techniques to promote healing.
Techniques such as stretching, massage, gentle pressure, heat, cold alcohol therapy and resistance are used to promote healthy movement.
With manipulation, blood flow is increased in the tissues and releases pressure within compressed bones and joints.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Based on the patient’s specific diagnosis and condition, the osteopathic physician uses techniques to make precise manipulations in order to facilitate the body’s ability to regain normal tissue function.
An overall ease of pain, advanced healing, and an increase in overall mobility.
Benefits go beyond muscle pain and can help patients with a number of other health issues including asthma, sinus disorders, carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, menstrual pain.
Part of a comprehensive treatment plan
Osteopathic manipulation can be used on its own or as part of a comprehensive treatment plan including a medication regiment, physical therapy, and exercise.
Osteopathic manipulation has proven to be effective for people of all ages with pain management, faster healing, and improved mobility.
