Osteopathy is patient-centered treatment that enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is based on an extensive knowledge and understanding of the anatomy and the physiology of the body. The Osteopathic Manual Practitioner uses a “hands-on” therapy that is based on a highly developed sense of touch. Osteopathy applies the understanding of the relationship of one part of the body to all other parts of the body. The Osteopathic treatment can ease pain, reduce swelling and improve tissue mobility which helps the body function better as a whole.
