Osteopathy Q & A

What is osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a specialized area of medicine that takes a holistic approach to care by supporting your body’s self-healing power. An osteopath studies the musculoskeletal system and treats medical disorders through the manipulation of the bones, joints, and muscles.

In osteopathic medicine, it’s taught that each individual part of your musculoskeletal system affects the entire system. If one part is misaligned, it affects your whole body. When developing your treatment plan, the team at the Center for Natural Family Medicine focuses on your entire body, not just the injured or affected area.

Osteopaths believe that physical strain can become embedded in your anatomy and lead to disease. Osteopathic treatment is aimed at finding and alleviating the physical strain to improve or eliminate the disease process.

As a holistic practice, the team takes into account your other body systems, including your circulatory, nervous, and lymphatic system, when developing your plan for overall wellness and health.

What types of conditions can osteopathy help?

The team uses osteopathy to manage a number of health issues and medical conditions. Some of the most common include:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Asthma
  • Back and neck pain
  • Herniated discs and spinal stenosis
  • Pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Urinary stress incontinence
  • Sciatica
  • Vertigo

The Center for Natural Family Medicine also uses osteopathy to treat sports injuries and relieve the discomfort some women may experience during pregnancy.

What can I expect during osteopathic treatment?

Osteopathy is a hands-on approach to medicine that uses a gentle touch. The team at the Center for Natural Family Medicine uses their hands to find the strain, figure out how the problem affects your health, and undo the strain using:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Massage
  • Rhythmic joint movements
  • Stretching muscles and joints

The team also uses techniques that encourage muscles to work together to improve strength and stability.

The practice also offers other holistic techniques to manage conditions, including prolotherapy, homeopathic medicine, and platelet-rich plasma.
