Kitchener Osteopathy with LiveWell Health and Physiotherapy
Osteopathy is a treatment based on the principle of treating the body as a whole. It’s designed to treat musculoskeletal pain, whether muscle, bone, joint or nerve and focuses on treating multiple areas of the body for optimal results rather than a single point. This is also why Osteopathy is regarded as an ideal treatment for general body maintenance as well. Osteopathy is all about finding areas with tension, swelling, tenderness, or mobility issues and manually restoring health. This can include improving your body’s function, increasing mobility, and improving circulation.
Our Kitchener Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that requires years of professional training and clinical practice. Our experience Osteopaths apply their in-depth understanding of the structure and function of the body in order to find the root cause of your problems. Whether you have a disease, disorder, dysfunction, or are just in pain, our Kitchener team can detect and treat any bodily tensions. Using non-invasive manual therapy, our Osteopaths will unlock your body’s natural ability for self-correction and health restoration. This can involve following the tissue into specific positions while utilizing internal forces and rhythms through a series of purposeful movements.
What Does an Osteopathy Treatment Involve?
A typical Osteopathy treatment involves soft tissue massage work, joint mobilization to improve movement and muscle energy techniques to stretch tight muscles. Although these exercises are most common, it is not unheard of for an Osteopathic Practitioner to add exercises such as active release, cranial-sacral therapy and visceral manipulation, to name a few, to a patient’s Osteopathy treatment program. All techniques, regardless of how different they maybe are designed to be relaxing and pain-free, making the treatment as enjoyable for the patient as possible.
