WHAT IS OSTEOPATHY?
The human body is a complex organism and our anatomic systems are intricately interconnected. Osteopathy is based on the concept that the physiological function of the human body is governed by its structural biomechanics and that a restriction within one area of the body can cause or be caused by a restriction within another area or system.
For instance, a structural restriction within the musculoskeletal system can directly or indirectly be caused by a cranial (skull) bone lesion or visceral (organ) adhesion and vice versa. Osteopathic palpation and methods of assessment are used to locate these points of restriction. Non-invasive techniques are then utilized to engage the patient's parasympathetic nervous system and aid the body's natural ability to release the tension within the restricted area. Once the primary restriction has been released, the physiological dysfunction within all affected areas and systems can then return to normal function.
