Osteopathy: Osteopathic treatment treats you in the following way:
Osteopaths are aware of how structure can influence the way the body functions. Problems in the body are caused by injury or misalignment due to overstrain or imbalanced muscles. This may compress nerves, and vessels resulting in restriction of movement of the joints and their adjoining soft tissues and nerves.
Certain medical conditions and diseases can reflect symptomatic pathways which may not always have musculosketal origin but present with problems in the body's joints and muscles.
The use of gentle manipulation and suitable osteopathic treatment will help reduce tension and strain, allowing corrective alignment of spinal peripheral joints.
Osteopaths use their fingers to palate muscles and seek out differing textures, detects changes which is masked in the muscle tissue as tension and other physiological tissue problems. Soft tissue manipulation is similar to massage like techniques, but it is more specific in that it treats the underlying tissues by influencing the brain to change muscular reactions.
The objective is to loosen and relax tightened and shortened muscle fibres well as lengthen muscle contractures. Joints are rhythmically moved by mobilising in the joints plane of motion. This frees restricted joints, restores pain free movement and allows joint capsules to return to a position of ease. Manipulation is a core aspect of osteopathic treatment and diagnosis. High Velocity Thrust (HVT) is often used. This is a rapid painless movement, usually applied to the spine helping joints to move into position allowing movement to return. The pain eases with a soreness which goes with time and rest.
