How I Approach Treatment
Every treatment is not approached the same way. I take many things into consideration, including medical history and current aggravating factors. Treatment is individualized for each patient, depending on what’s going on in the body that particular day. This holistic approach includes the whole body, to find the cause of the problem, not just treat the symptoms. Assessment and treatment are simultaneous in Osteopathy. Recommendations are given for home care, to compliment what has been accomplished during the session. This may be as simple as being more body aware, and recognizing certain things that one could be doing that are aggravating the problem.
What is Classical Osteopathy?
Classical Osteopathy stays true to the founding principles of the profession. The theory and application of these principles are at the root of all diagnoses and treatment. Skill is honed from a mastery of principles, not a memorization of techniques or adjustments. The classical osteopath is trained to treat conditions ranging from pain to organ dysfunction based on their in depth understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathology and how they relate to osteopathic principles.
What Can Osteopathy Treat?
Osteopathy is often seen as a musculoskeletal type of treatment, relieving back and joint pain. It does of course focus on the importance of posture and structural alignment, but it also addresses so much more. It is a physiological adjustment, as well as structural.
Some conditions that can be treated are:
1. Respiratory issues
2. Reproductive Issues
3. Pregnancy complaints
4. Mental Health related issues
5. Digestive Disorders
7. Blood Pressure
8. Colic in Babies
