Osteopathic Manual Practitioners identify, assess, and treat the body’s structures and rhythms using a gentle, hands-on approach. This fundamental technique is called osteopathic palpation. Manual practitioners spend many years developing the very sensitive sense of touch they need to master osteopathic palpation.
Osteopathic palpation is what makes manual osteopathy different from other forms of therapy. Manual practitioners use it in the 4 major treatment techniques: 1. Soft Tissue manipulation
2. Osteopathic articular technique
3. Cranial osteopathy
4. Visceral manipulation
Here are some examples of conditions and problems that osteopathic manual practitioners can help treat.
Note: It is important that you speak with your medical doctor for the complete diagnosis of any medical condition.
