Osteopathy Therapy Etobicoke & Toronto
Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. An osteopathic physician will focus on the joints, muscles, and spine. Treatment aims to positively affect the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems. Manual medicine means that both diagnosis and treatment are carried out with the hands.
What Is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a non-invasive natural form of manual treatment that focuses on total body health. Its manual therapy is gentle and includes visceral, myofascial release and craniosacral therapy techniques. An assessment is performed through movement and postural analysis. This skill takes years to develop and the practitioner can feel restrictions within the body. The goal is to improve the circulatory, nervous musculoskeletal and lymphatic systems. As a result, pain is relieved and function is improved. Specifically, there are four key principles of osteopathy. The body is treated as a whole. Maximum function is based on proper structural alignment. With the removal of restrictions, the body can heal itself. Free movement enhances the body’s fluids and enhances tissue healing. Osteopathy has been practiced since the 19th century.
