Osteopathic Manual Therapy
Osteopathy is a natural therapy that helps individuals restore function by treating the causes of pain and imbalance. Osteopaths work with the position, mobility and quality of tissues, using their hands to examine the body while perceiving and diagnosing disease or illness. Some examples of conditions treated include sciatica, asthma, arthritis, digestive problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, whiplash and postural problems.
