OSTEOPATHIC BODY TREATMENT
The goal of osteopathy is to detect, treat, and prevent health problems through the moving, stretching, and manipulating of muscles and joints. Osteopathic Manual Therapy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that focuses on total body health. It treats and strengthens the musculoskeletal framework. A therapist aims to help the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems work together in harmony.
An osteopath believes that an individual’s wellbeing is influenced by how well their bones, muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue function together. Consequently, osteopaths utilize treatments that are designed to aid in healing. Their focus is on holistic and patient-centred medicine, without drugs or surgery.
