Osteopathy is a type of alternative medicine that emphasizes manual readjustments, myofascial release and other physical manipulation of muscle tissue and bones.

 

Osteopathy is a profession that makes extensive use of manual assessment and treatment guided by the principles set forth by its founders. Osteopathy emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function of the body. Osteopaths are functional anatomists who use manual therapy. They find the health, rather than focus on disease. Osteopathic treatment works to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impulses and the circulation of body fluids.

Osteopathy is a patient-centered approach to health. It is guided by principles, relating to the patient as a whole. The body is a self-regulating, functional unit in which function and structure are inter-related, and healthy tissues require proper circulation of all body fluids.

 

Skilled palpation and a detailed knowledge of anatomy, physiology and biomechanics guide the osteopath to assess and restore balance within and between all the systems of the body; musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurological, cranial and visceral. In health, the body seeks to maintain a balance within and between these systems. The osteopath uses a wide array of manual approaches to reduce and resolve strains, stress and dysfunction in all areas of the body. The goal is to remove restrictions to vascular, neural and bio-mechanical mechanisms and ultimately support the natural healing mechanism by promoting auto regulation.

 

Uses

Osteopathy can provide relief and treatment for a wide range of conditions.

These includes:

  • arthritis
  • foot, ankle, hip, and knee pain
  • back pain, neck pain, and sciatica
  • hand, shoulder, and elbow pain
  • headaches
  • tennis and golfer’s elbow
  • postural problems due to pregnancy, sports injury, driving or work strain, or digestive issues neuralgia

 

Osteopathic physicians can also detect conditions that are not treatable through osteopathy, to refer patients to other specialists.

 

Osteopathy and sleep

Osteopathy can help a person sleep when chronic pain has been causing insomnia.

 

Pain and discomfort can lead to a lack of sleep or restless nights. This can make it harder for the body to function adequately, and reduce the ability to cope with pain. Osteopathy has been shown to reduce sleeplessness and insomnia resulting from chronic pain. Studies have shown that osteopathic treatment can reduce sleep apnea in infants under 4 months old, but further research is needed to confirm this.
