How Does it Work?
In practice a manual osteopathic practitioner will assess the whole body as a unit and not just the area that is causing symptoms. For example if you may complain of knee pain, the manual osteopathic practitioner will assess the function of the knee but also look for any compensations within the body that are a result or a cause of any dysfuntion in the knee.
Once the osteopathic practitioner has assessed the whole body they will use a combination of techniques such as joint articulation, myofascial release, visceral manipulation, and cranial sacral techniques, as appropriate for each individual. The result is that the knee will have less stress placed upon it, allowing for healing and a decrease in pain, while also improving the functional biomechanics throughout the body which may improve that difficult digestion and decrease those headaches that seemed to have nothing to do with the knee pain.
