Osteopathy Near Me
Benefits of Getting Osteopathy
Let’s face it: Life can be harsh on our bodies. Even if we do not spend all day doing physical work, regular daily movements- and inactivity- take their own toll. Many people from all different occupations and walks of life experience pain, but most of us do not want to rely on medication to relieve it.
Fortunately, there are natural treatments that can greatly reduce or eradicate our need for medication, including osteopathy and chiropractic care.
Osteopathy is a form of natural treatment that uses gentle hand techniques to relieve pain, reduce tension, and more. The techniques include moving your joints to improve range of motion, relaxing muscles through massage, and stretching stiff joints.
Chiropractic care is treatment through which spinal manipulation and other techniques are used to realign the spine, improve posture, increase range of motion, and more. It has also been known to improve blood pressure and digestion, increase energy, relieve pain, and improve muscle coordination.
The goals of these two treatments are similar, but the techniques are different and work well together to provide a patient with the best results. For instance, the massage and stretching from osteopathy allows the chiropractor better access to the spine and joints. The realignment involved with chiropractic manipulation relieves pain and helps the spine, joints, and muscles to support one another.
Those are just two examples of how these treatments work to complement one another, but there are so many other ways. At Body Rehab Clinic we are trained in gentle osteopathic techniques through to manipulation.
We also use viscerosomatic therapy (an osteopathic treatment) to complement other physiotherapy treatment. Viscerosomatic therapy is based on the specific placement of soft manual forces to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of individual organs, the systems the organs function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body.
