“What is called genius is the abundance of life and health.”
– Henry David Thoreau
To restore well being and alleviate aches and pains, Osteopathic Practitioners assess and treat your body as a whole. Osteopaths take this patient-centric, holistic approach not only because symptoms sometimes show up in a different part of your body from where the problem actually is, but also because there may be several factors contributing to the symptoms you are experiencing.
At Inside Out Wellness Centre Osteopathic Manual Practitioners maintain, improve or restore the normal physiological function of interrelated body structures and systems, enhancing the body’s natural ability to heal itself and restoring the natural balance of your body.
Your practitioner will use various manual assessment and hands-on treatment techniques to ease pain, help reduce swelling, improve tissue mobility and promote efficient healing. These techniques may include gentle manual palpation, soft tissue therapy such as trigger point therapy and myofascial release technique, osteo-articular joint mobilization, therapeutic exercises and muscle energy techniques, in conjunction with biomechanical, orthopaedic and neurological clinical assessment.
Acting with the understanding that the body has the inherent ability to defend, heal, correct & regulate itself and that your body’s structure and function are reciprocally interrelated, the goal of Osteopathic manual treatment is to restore the normal functioning of the affected areas – finding and treating the source of the problem, instead of simply treating the symptoms.
