One of the only manual osteopaths in southern California! Manual osteopathy is a form of alternative healthcare that uses hands-on techniques to diagnose and treat a wide range of health conditions. It is based on the principles of osteopathic medicine, which emphasizes the relationship between the structure and function of the body and the body’s ability to heal itself.
What will manual osteopathy do for me?
1. Pain relief: Manual osteopathy can be an effective treatment for pain relief, particularly for musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and joint pain.
2. Improved mobility: By addressing imbalances and restrictions in the musculoskeletal system, manual osteopathy can improve mobility and range of motion.
3. Improved circulation: Manual osteopathy techniques, such as soft tissue mobilization, can improve circulation and lymphatic drainage, which can help reduce inflammation and promote healing.
4. Reduced stress and tension: Manual osteopathy can help reduce stress and tension in the body by releasing muscle tension and improving the body’s ability to relax.
5. Enhanced immune system function: Manual osteopathy can help enhance the body’s immune system function by improving circulation and lymphatic drainage, which can help remove toxins and waste products from the body.
Overall, manual osteopathy can be a beneficial treatment for a wide range of health conditions, particularly those related to the musculoskeletal system. By addressing imbalances and restrictions in the body’s structure and function, manual osteopathy can help promote healing and improve overall health and well-being.
How is it different than a chiropractor? Key differences between manual osteopathy and chiropractic treatment:
Philosophy: Manual osteopathy is based on the principles of osteopathic medicine, which emphasizes the relationship between the structure and function of the body and the body’s ability to heal itself. Chiropractic treatment is based on the concept that spinal misalignments, or subluxations, can interfere with the body’s ability to heal itself.
Techniques: While both manual osteopathy and chiropractic treatment involve hands-on techniques, there are some differences in the specific techniques used. Manual osteopathy may involve a wider range of techniques, including soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, and visceral manipulation. Chiropractic treatment typically focuses on spinal adjustments to correct subluxations.
Treatment approach: Manual osteopathy takes a holistic approach to treatment, focusing on the whole person rather than just the specific symptoms or condition being treated. Chiropractic treatment is typically more focused on treating specific conditions or symptoms, particularly those related to the spine.
Training: Manual osteopaths typically receive a more comprehensive training in anatomy, physiology, and hands-on techniques than chiropractors, who typically focus more on spinal adjustments.
Overall, both manual osteopathy and chiropractic treatment can be effective treatments for musculoskeletal conditions. The choice between these two approaches may depend on individual preferences and the specific condition being treated.
