Osteopathic Manual Treatment

Osteopathic Manual Treatment evaluates connective tissue dysfunction, which include injuries of the musculo-skeletal, circulatory and nervous systems, treatment is carried out by the use of connective tissue manipulation, therapeutic and rehabilitative exercise, postural and nutritional counseling, and the use of the effective properties of mobilization of soft tissue for the purpose correcting, alleviating or preventing a physical impairment or activity limitation.

Osteopathic works by decompressing structure and tissue restrictions, thereby releasing body structures enhancing the body's ability to heal and restore normal function. A consultation involves manual examination of the body to assess the flow of fluids, tissue dysfunction, bone compression, joint mobility, and related affected tissue, then treatment is utilised to mobilize the affected area to release the injury pattern.

 

Osteopathy was originally developed by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, an American Medical doctor, who believed that remedies for disease lay in the correctly adjusted body, obtained through manipulative techniques.  Osteopathy Manual Treatment can correct a host of common health problems that appear to be resistant to Main stream health care.
