Osteopathic Manual Therapy

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare that focuses on the interconnection between the body’s structure and its function. It aids healing via hands-on methods that enhance circulation, nerve function, and alignment, for benefits like pain reduction, mobility increase, posture improvement, and overall well-being. Osteopathy is particularly effective in addressing musculoskeletal issues, but its holistic approach can also support other aspects of health, making it a valuable option for those seeking natural and comprehensive healthcare solutions.

What to Expect

The first step is to have a full body assessment. Treatment is then based on integrating the body as a functional whole. We treat structurally, so that means the joints, the ligaments, the muscles, and even the organs. Mobilization and manual therapy are utilized.

What’s the difference between chiropractic and osteopathy?

There are multiple differences between a chiropractor and an osteopathic therapist. The major one is that chiropractors use spinal manipulation as their primary tool. “If you come in for a foot problem, a back issue, or a shoulder problem, it doesn’t matter. Chiropractors will use spinal manipulation as their primary tool to treat the body,” said Katharine, who notes that spinal manipulation is not used in osteopathy.

Chiropractic appointments also tend to be much shorter than those for osteopathy.

Do you see clients of all ages?

Yes, clients from across the spectrum come in from newborns to older seniors.

Do you cross-refer to other practitioners?

Yes, one of the many benefits of receiving care at the practice is our ability to cross-refer to other practitioners. “We have some fantastic practitioners, like our massage therapists, who are second to none,” said Katharine. She sees that ability to cross-refer as a competitive advantage.
