Family Osteopathic Medicine

Life’s physical and emotional traumas can alter or hinder function at any age, often producing significant effects upon a person’s health. Osteopathy is based on the principle that the body has an inherent drive towards self-healing and self-improvement. Because it is an approach based on principles rather than techniques, Osteopathy alone or in conjunction with other practices of medicine can treat or ameliorate almost any medical condition.

Treatment involves a gentle hands-on approach to evaluate tissue function and structural dynamics. A thorough diagnosis connects the patient’s history and physical exam to the structural evaluation. A “cause and effect” relationship frequently emerge, and patients are often relieved to know that their symptoms make sense. Since the ability to heal persists throughout life, patients of all ages can benefit from this gentle treatment approach.
