What is Osteopathic Therapy?

Osteopathic Therapy uses hands-on techniques to promote overall health and well-being within the body’s musculoskeletal system. Osteopathy emphasizes how the body operates as a cohesive unit that requires an ideal balance among your various systems. The whole body is examined and mechanical disruptions are treated to optimize the body’s functions and prevent a wide range of health issues. Our Calgary Clinic recognizes how optimal health relies on your body’s harmonious interaction among its various components. We employ Osteopathic Therapy as part of our multidisciplinary program to manage chronic pain and injury.

Structure and Function Relationship

Osteopathy recognizes the interconnection between the structure of the body and its function. By addressing imbalances or restrictions in the musculoskeletal system, we aim to enhance overall health and well-being.

Holistic Approach

Rather than focusing solely on isolated symptoms, osteopathic therapy takes a holistic approach. We consider the entire body, taking into account the physical, emotional, and environmental factors that may contribute to your condition.

The Body’s Self-Healing Ability

Skilled manual techniques are strategically employed to facilitate and actively support the body’s natural capacity for healing.

How Does Osteopathic Therapy Work?

The primary goal of Osteopathic Therapy is to optimize the body’s natural ability to heal itself and promote overall well-being. Imbalances are addressed using techniques that engage affected tissues to restore and optimize their operation. Muscle-resisted techniques are employed to mobilize joints, and soft tissues are stimulated to promote healthy function. With a gentle yet targeted approach, fluids are carefully and systematically flushed from congested areas to improve circulation and facilitate the body’s natural detoxification. Patients often experience immediate or near-term changes following the treatment.

What to Expect During an Osteopathic Therapy Session

During an Osteopathic Therapy session, your practitioner will conduct a thorough assessment of your health history and perform a physical examination. Treatment typically involves gentle, hands-on techniques such as soft tissue manipulation, stretching, and joint mobilization. The goal is to identify and address restrictions or dysfunctions to promote optimal health and well-being.
