Osteopathy is a non-medicated, non-invasive manual therapy that targets to improve health across all body systems by kneading and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework. Osteopathy is a part of physiotherapy which is used as a treatment to improve health.
Our team at AcePhysio and Healthcare majorly focuses on the joints, muscles, and spine. Because of being a manual therapy, the diagnosis, as well as the treatment, should be carried out with the hand, and so this technique is known as osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM).
Techniques include stretching, gentle pressure, and resistance, known as osteopathic manipulative medicine. An osteopathic physician may also issue prescription medicine and use surgical methods to support the holistic, manual treatment.
Osteopathy can provide relief and treatment for a wide range of conditions. The conditions might include:
● foot, ankle, hip, and knee pain
● back pain, neck pain, and sciatica
● hand, shoulder, and elbow pain
● tennis and golfer’s elbow
● postural problems due to pregnancy, sports injury, driving or work strain, or digestive issues
Osteopathic physicians can also detect conditions that are not treatable through osteopathy to refer patients to other specialists.
During this consultation, our team member, an osteopathic physician, will discuss the patient’s health problems, listen, and take case notes. The session will last approximately 45 minutes.
The osteopathic physician will physically examine the patient, who may need to remove some clothing to carry out the diagnosis. Patient privacy should be respected during this process. The examination may take 1 to 2 hours.
Osteopathy is a complementary therapy. It is used alongside conventional treatment to improve health. However, osteopathic physicians are also qualified as medical doctors (MDs), and they have more training than other complementary therapists, such as naturopaths. They specialize in osteopathy.
Osteopathy uses a drug-free, non-invasive form of manual medicine that focuses on the health of the whole body, not just the injured or affected part.
Osteopathic intervention can help treat arthritis, back pain, headaches, tennis elbow, digestive issues, and postural problems.
Treatment for osteopathy can also assist with sleep cycles and the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic symptoms.
At AcePhysio and Healthcare, Osteopathic physician takes a holistic whole-body approach to healthcare. It uses manual ‘hands-on’ techniques to improve circulation and correct altered biomechanics without the use of drugs. .
An osteopathic physician does not concentrate only on the problem area, but uses manual techniques to balance all the body systems, and to provide overall good health and wellbeing.
Many osteopathic physicians also serve as primary care physicians in fields such as family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics.
An osteopath will first of all fully assess a patient’s health to work out what treatment is needed in the sessions.
People visiting an osteopath should ensure that their doctor is licensed to practice. Ask to see this documentation if it is not already on display in their practice. An individual may have a referral from a primary care physician, or they may refer themselves. Self-referring patients should inform their regular doctor, to ensure that ongoing care is consistent.
Treatment for osteopathy in Ace Physio and Healthcare is a certified and friendly treatment for the patients.
