What is Osteopathy?
Firstly, Osteopathy embraces the concept that structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) are interrelated. In other words, it is a system of complexity. Encompassing both the mechanical and the fluidic movements within the structure. This modality uses gentle palpation to address the mobility and motility of structures. As a result, it establishes homeostasis within the body. Mobility is the freedom of movement of structures that are under voluntary control. Therefore, increasing mobility will have a positive effect on the amount of movement of fluids in the body. So, motility is under involuntary control. It is considered the micro-movements that Osteopathic therapy uses to recuperate the macro function that one can visually observe. Most importantly, Osteopathic care can help with a wide range of concerns. Including, but not limited to: Back pain, Joint pain, Repetitive Strain Injury, Pre-Post Natal care, cranial and visceral discomforts. In conclusion, a thorough clinical evaluation in conjunction with the Osteopathic clinical reasoning and palpatory skills, will help decide the therapeutic strategy for each individual.
