What is Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Manual osteopathy is a form of holistic manual therapy based on the tenets of natural healing and focuses on the inter-relatedness of the human body. Osteopathic manual practitioners, extensively study the anatomy of all the body systems to understand their many connections. This knowledge is the manual osteopath’s guiding tool in treating dysfunctions, whether that be for acute or chronic conditions.

Osteopathic Philosphy 101

  • The body is a unit, therefore dysfunction anywhere in the body can be detrimental to you
  • Structure & function are connected
  • The body is a self-regulating, self-healing unit
  • The body is defensive & it was designed this way to optimize healing
  • The body is meant to adapt, therefore when this ability is disturbed, the integrity of the system disintegrates
  • Rational treatment is based on the above principles

Why Osteopathic Manual Therapy?

Manual osteopathy speaks of my personal rehabilitation philosophy. Why would our bodies want to destroy us, why would our bodies break down if we were meant to be thriving beings? Our bodies want to heal, they want to function, move, and live a full meaningful life. However, the body needs to maintain a level of stability to keep our systems moving effectively. When these systems are interrupted, alterations in function occur to try and keep the system moving. Just as a dam stops the flow of water, it can also re-direct the flow, I believe the body has the same response mechanisms.

The principles of osteopathic manual therapy follow exactly this, dysfunction can occur at any place in the body and this dysfunction can wreak havoc on the rest of the system as the body is entirely connected. When an osteopathic manual therapist can free this dysfunction we start to see the system re-align itself, with a little helping hand we see amazing results for a more fulfilling functional life.

I strongly believe in function following structure. Osteopathic manual therapists must look at the body uniquely and work with the tissues and structures to find ease and flow of movement. When we can tap into this area of the body we find acceptance, with this acceptance and some assistance the body will naturally recover to a state of well-being.

Does Osteopathy Work?

Osteopathic manual therapists work with mobilizing all aspects of the body, that is bones, joints, tissues, fascia, fluids, viscera etc. As we believe that dysfunction can occur at any place in the body.
Osteopathic manual therapists will use their hands to assist in your recovery. The hands-on mobilization of these structures aims to release tight muscles, restrictions in joints to free nerves, blood vessels, lymph flow, and spinal fluid flow as well as blockages between organs. This freedom then allows the body to self-heal.
Depending on how your practitioner evaluates your condition, all treatments are methodologically unique.
You receive one on one time with your therapist. Allowing for a comprehensive understanding of why you are seeking treatment, and time to treat this reason.
Your osteopathic manual therapist is educated in asking about daily activities that may have perpetuated the onset of your condition and will help to create a plan of action for any warranted changes. Understanding proper ergonomics, a healthy diet, exercise plan etc. is part of understanding every person as a whole.

Osteopathic manual therapists have great working relationships with other healthcare providers and practitioners in the Winnipeg community. If there is speculation that treatment requires additional support, osteopathic manual therapists will refer to their partners in therapy, ie. physiotherapists, exercise professionals (ie. personal trainers, exercise consultants), nutritionists etc.

Manual osteopathy is a gentle non-invasive approach to healing the body. It can treat a variety of conditions including:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions (strains, sprains, chronic pain)
  • Back, neck, hip, shoulder etc. pain
  • Muscle tension headaches
  • Athletic injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Vertigo
  • Sinusitis, Allergies
  • Post-partum
  • Menstrual discomfort/pain
  • etc.
