Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopathic Therapy is a gentle and non-invasive, hands-on therapy that considers the body as a whole interrelated system. Osteopathy focuses on modalities that include:

  • Osteoarticular Corrections: Using gentle articular corrections to realign the structures of the body.
  • Myofascial Release: Treatment of the body’s fascia, or connective tissues, a web-like covering that protects our muscles and organs.
  • Craniosacral Therapy: A gentle adjustment technique to treat the spine, sacrum, and cranium (skull) to restore balance to the circulation of blood and cerebrospinal fluid
  • Visceral Manipulation: A treatment of the viscera, the internal organs, particularly the liver, spleen, kidneys, stomach, intestines, bladder, uterus, lungs, and heart

Why Choose Manual Osteopathy?

Manual Osteopathy treatments are completely individualized and can benefit the musculoskeletal system, the visceral organs, the fascial tissue, the circulatory and lymphatic system, as well as the nervous system. Relief can often be instant, however, it is not uncommon for the body to take some time after treatment to adjust to the changes treatment has induced. At The Clinic YYC, the goal of every treatment is to restore and bring balance to the body to facilitate its own natural ability to heal itself.

Manual Osteopathy FAQs

Osteopathy is a patient-centred system of healthcare. Your first appointment generally lasts one hour to allow us adequate time to:

  • Listen and ask questions about your concerns, your general health, other medical care you are receiving or medication you are taking, and record this in your case notes. The information you provide will be confidential.
  • Examine you properly. It is likely that we will ask you to change into shorts or a tank top for your exam. Tell us if you are uncomfortable about this. You can ask a friend or relative to accompany you and be present throughout your treatment.
  • Ask you to make simple movements and stretches to observe your posture and mobility. Because of the body’s structure, pain or stiffness you are experiencing in one part may be linked to a problem elsewhere.
  • Examine the health of the joints, tissues, and ligaments using our hands and a highly developed sense of touch called palpation.
  • We will also check for signs of serious conditions we cannot treat and we may advise you to see your GP or go to a hospital. We will provide you with a letter explaining what we believe to be the problem.

The first treatment lasts one hour and the subsequent sessions generally last up to 30 minutes but longer sessions are allocated if it is deemed necessary.

Each treatment will start with a brief review of your symptoms and a reassessment to monitor your progress. Treatment will then consist of soft tissue techniques (massage), mobilizations, spinal manipulation, and/or a series of exercises that you will be guided through. Though treatment can be uncomfortable at times, it is our goal to help alleviate pain and restore function.
