Who is Eligible for Osteopathic Care?

Updated: Mar 5

Anyone! Osteopathy is a safe and effective manual therapy that anyone can benefit from. Osteopathy is premised on the belief that the body is self-healing and self-regulating, which means that your body is intrinsically seeking to express health and wholeness at all times.

Osteopathy sees the body as one unit working together in harmony. When all parts are moving freely, and all layers of the body are properly aligned, good health results. Osteopathic treatment will include joint mobilizations and soft tissue treatment meant to increase range of motion wherever restriction is found. And because no two people are exactly the same, no one gets the same treatment; osteopathic care is uniquely tailored to meet a person’s specific needs, at a specific time.

In osteopathic treatment, we don’t chase after the symptoms, or effects, but trace the person’s symptoms back to the mechanical root cause of their dysfunction, which is preventing the body from healing itself. In this way, osteopathic care is holistic, dynamic, and comprehensive in its approach.

If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms or conditions, osteopathy may be suitable for you:

Chronic and Acute Pain

neck pain; back pain; shoulder pain; headaches; migraines; tendonitis; tennis elbow; plantar fasciitis; repetitive strain injuries; inflammation

Nerve Related Problems

numbness; tingling; shooting pain; sciatica; muscle weakness

Organ and Visceral Problems

digestive issues; reproductive issues; sinus issues; circulation issues; breathing issues; hormonal issues; immune system issues

Structural Problems

postural imbalances; scoliosis; joint problems; arthritis; TMJ dysfunction; muscle stiffness; mobility issues; muscle spasms

Autoimmune Issues

fibromyalgia; rheumatoid arthritis; IBS; psoriasis


concussion; whiplash; repetitive strain injuries; slip and falls; muscle strains; sprained joints; sports related injuries; slipped discs


sleep disorders; mental health issues


for boosting immunity, longevity, vitality, and overall well-being;

Please note: Osteopathic manual practitioners do not treat disease or symptoms, nor do we medically diagnose disease. Osteopathic manual therapy is not a substitute for medical diagnosis or examination.

What we do treat: Osteopathic manual practitioners treat myofascial and musculoskeletal restriction in the body. The goal is to find and release restrictions in the body, and to restore structural alignment. This fosters an ideal environment in your body to enhance your self-healing and self-regulating faculties, thus giving your body a better chance to free itself from symptoms.
