Osteopathy is a manual form of therapy including cranio-sacral therapy, that  uses palpation and manipulative techniques to restore balance to your muscles, joints, nerves, connective tissue, and internal organs. The focus of Osteopathy is to find the cause of your pathology or pain, and to treat all your systems and their connections in the body to return to a state of health.

Fertility

Osteopathy seeks to restore any structural or biomechanical imbalances that may be causing dysfunction in your reproductive system – both in men and women.

Pregnancy and Postpartum

Osteopathic treatments can help your body to accommodate for the transformations that your pregnant body is going through.  Osteopathy can treat low back pain, neck pain, morning sickness, heartburn, constipation, too frequent urination, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and circulatory issues.

Infants and Children

Infants: During life inside the womb and/or during the birth process, babies may experience prolonged compressed positions in the pelvis, the cord around their neck, or distress as a result of forceps, vacuum, or cesarean procedures. By gentle and thorough assessment and manual treatment, osteopathy in most cases can help alleviate those symptoms for your baby. Osteopathy can help if your baby presents with:

  • Colic, constipation, regurgitation (excessive spitting up)
  • Tongue tie, latching/feeding difficulties, mouth breathing
  • Torticollis, plagiocephaly (flat head), limited neck mobility
  • Sleeping disorders, confusing day and night sleeping
  • Ear, throat, and  nose concerns such as otitis/ ear infections

Children: Osteopathy also takes care of other developmental stages in your child’s life as they grow up to be adolescents and adults.  These include:

  • dental-orthodontic procedures (braces, etc.)
  • sports injuries
  • postural problems
  • difficulties focusing or concentration at school
