What Is Osteopathic Therapy?
Manual Osteopathic Practitioners recognize the significance of the relationship between the structure and function of the body. Osteopathy is a type of manual therapy that promotes healing by focusing on how the skeleton, joints, muscles, nerves, and connective tissues all work together. Gentle movements are used by manual osteopathic practitioners to address issues with the spine, joints, muscles, organs, fascia, and fluids. It is the detection and reversal of mechanical and physiological shifts that occur over time.
Why It Works
Osteopathy has been shown to have neurophysiological effects, which means it functions as a link between the nervous system and the rest of the body. The assessments aid in determining precisely where the pain or dysfunction is located, as well as which systems are involved. The treatment gently relieves friction, allowing for realignment, relaxation, and blood flow. Relief may occur after a single treatment, but long-term improvement may necessitate a treatment plan. Pain relief, stiffness reduction, increased muscular function, and improved range of motion and posture are just a few of the advantages.
Surfing the Sympathetic Nervous System: Nerves send out signals that can be pain, tingling, weakness, or other dysfunctions. These signals originate in the vertebrae but must pass through many obstacles, including tissues such as bone, muscle, and fascia. We can target specific vertebrae that are responsible for specific functions. MO techniques induce deep tissue relaxation and pain reduction via the central nervous system.
MO is performed entirely and precisely by hand palpation. After a thorough examination, the entire body is examined and treated as needed. Each treatment is unique because each of the bodies examined is unique. Both the practitioner and the client have a role to play in the healing process, and both need to be present.
