OSTEOPATH

Osteopathy is a drug-free, non-invasive manual therapy that aims to improve health across all body systems by manipulating and strengthening the musculoskeletal framework.

  • I don’t feel the adjustments right now. Will I feel them later?

  • How many times a week should I see you?

  • I noticed a lot of moves similar to my chiropractic adjustment. How close are they?

  • Once the pain is gone, will it be gone permanently?

  • Do all osteopaths treat a person the same way?

Other Questions

SHOULD I TRY OSTEOPATHY?

Everyone and anyone can benefit from an osteopathic treatment. Osteopathy employs a holistic, whole body approach to a treatment. It is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative to help patients restore the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic system function. It’s also great at finding relief from pain and improving your overall health.

DOES OSTEOPATHY HELP WITH PAIN ONLY?

Specific conditions that osteopathy has been shown to be of benefit include chronic pain, muscle spasms, sports-related injuries, migraines, circulatory problems, indigestion, prenatal and postnatal conditions, hypertension, respiratory issues, fibromyalgia, colic in newborns, and many more. So, no, osteopathy helps with more than just pain management.

IS OSTEOPATHY SIMILAR TO CHIROPRACTIC?

While all three disciplines treat similar conditions, chiropractic treatments are focused on a smaller area of the body. Osteopathy employs a whole body approach with a focus on freeing the path of communications and integration between the different structures and systems of the body that allow the body to heal. Apart from manipulation, osteopaths use other techniques such as stretching, pressure and mobilization.

CAN I SEE MY OTHER HEALTH-CARE PRACTITIONERS WHILE I’M HAVING THIS OSTEOPATHIC TREATMENT?

Yes. In most cases, collaborative health-care is best for achieving the desired treatment outcomes. The osteopathic approach to treatment differs in some key ways from other manual therapies. Some research has shown that having treatment from more than one type of health-care practitioner leads to better outcomes for that person’s health. So having osteopathic treatment while keeping, for example,  physiotherapy appointments, can help a person to realize better results overall.

DOES IT HURT?

Some soft tissue treatment may cause minor discomfort during treatment. Your osteopath will tell you what to expect, and will want you to let them know if you are in pain.  You may feel a little stiff or sore after treatment. This is a normal, healthy response to the treatment.

“Acupuncture has been around for 4,000 years. I can’t see a treatment being around that long just ‘faking’ it. But it all deals with energy. That’s why it’s hard to explain why it works.”

“In a car you can go on and on with it but each time you travel with it, it will need to be tweaked. The oil may need a top off, the tires may need a straightening or the windows may need to be cleaned. That’s exactly what a chiropractic adjustment does. For your body to maintain its everyday use, you need to provide it with everyday adjustments.”

“Any misalignment the body has, has a root cause and a location. It is my job to locate and remove the root cause of the problem, getting rid of disease and getting better health instead.”

“I had found someone I really liked then my husband got a new job in a new city. So, up we went and changed homes and all in another, bigger city. I thought that I’d never find that same person until I found Wellness Withdrawal. I think that the one at your place is even better than the one I left! Go figure!!!”
