The osteopathic practitioner focuses on the joints, muscles, and spine. Osteopathic intervention can help treat arthritis, back pain, headaches, tennis elbow, digestive issues, and postural problems. Treatment can also assist with sleep cycles and the nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic symptoms.
What is Osteo? Or should we say what is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is a hands on form of treatment for the whole body including muscles, bones, joints and all other tissues including your organs and nervous system. We often combine our treatment to involve work on all of these areas as they are all interconnected.
