Manual Osteopaths identify, assess and treat the body's structures and rhythms using a gentle, hands on approach. This fundamental technique is called osteopathic palpation. Manual Osteopaths develop a very sensitive sense of touch to master this technique. It makes manual osteopathy different form other forms of therapy.
What can I expect during a treatment?
A manual osteopathic treatment begins with an analysis of the body, taking into account stance, movement, alignment, areas of pain or discomfort, range of motion, client's medical history and the events leading to the injury. The clients own thoughts and perceptions of the problem and what treatment methods that have been tried are taken into consideration. Based on these findings, a rational treatment plan is tailored for that individual person. Clients should expect treatments to evolve and change as their conditions changes and improves.
