Osteopathy 101

Osteopathic Medicine, what it is all about?

Osteopathy is an wholistic based integrative medicine. Wholistic meaning it looks at the way the body systems are interacting with one another. This compares to reductionist, which isolates out and hones in on singular components. An Osteopath is actually a Primary Care Physician and able to diagnose conditions of the musculoskeletal system.

You are considered as whole unit, not just a total of your symptoms.

The core concept of unity that underflows Osteopathy is what makes it so brilliant and effective. The belief that the body is auto-regulating itself comes into play here. This means the body can heal itself, when given the right tools; be that nutrients or movement for example. An Osteopath sees the imbalances at the core, and gently yet powerfully stimulates the body back into alignment with itself, enabling it to feel supported enough to fix itself.

The body is self aware, self managing and intelligent.

The primary focus in Osteopathy is how the neuro-muscular skeletal system is interplaying with the other body systems. Muscles are pretty foundational aspect of a body, and so are nerves! What is the tone and tension like in your muscles? Are they stressed or strained? From where and what’s causing that? How does this impact your breathing? Your posture? Your digestion? An Osteopath will combine the techniques of soft tissue massage, joint mobilisation, dry needling, lifestyle & exercise advice and rehabilitation.

You may need to see an Osteopath a few times, this tends to be the way with wholistic medicine. There may be fast results, but to sustain that over the long term this means repetitive to re-train the body out of its old habits and into health and wellbeing. Or wealth as we like to call it. And that is the aim of an Osteopath, to help guide you into a more comfortable and sustainable way of being in your body. It is also child and baby safe modality J

Some examples of what an Osteopath can treat:
Back/hip/neck/shoulder/ankle/wrist pain – basically body pain associated with muscles or joints
Headaches
Osteoarthritis pain
Acute & Chronic conditions
Sports Injuries
Child developmental problems
Period pain
Postural issues

Just to name a quick few!
