Osteopathic & Neuro Fascial Manipulation
Osteopathy is a Hands-On Body Therapy that strategically targets Your Pain Origin to support your body’s own ability to heal itself without meds, injections or surgery.
Pain is defined as an emotional experience related to authentic or potential tissue damage. Pain is PERCIEVED by our Brain as a threat to our wellbeing. Many approaches that aim to heal pain using traditional passive remedies like heat, ice, local tissue massage, adjustments, traction machines or electrical/laser treatments have proven to give very short term relief of pain, but never long term recovery in most cases.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy is a Hands On Mechanical Diagnostic Art designed to restore the relationship between BODY STRUCTURE and BODY FUNCTION. It utilizes unique neuro-muscular treatment methods that leverage the gentle manipulation of the bones, joints, muscles, fascia and neural tissues to reinstate symmetry, mobility, balance and being pain free.
It is a unique branch of medical practice that places emphasis on the whole body as a Functional System, and is based on the philosophy that LOAD, also known as pressure, within the body transfers throughout our whole system via a kinetic chain of linked mechanical structures like our bones, nerves and muscles.
OMT requires at least 10 years to master and is not a course learned by traditional Physical Therapists. Our therapists are among a unique few in the Tristate area that have trained in this demanding field and it shows in our results with patients who come to us as a last resort to RESOLVE THEIR PAIN AND RECOVER AND HEAL.
