Our Osteopathic manipulation is performed by a Doctor of Osteopathy. He uses a variety of techniques to help clients improve mobility, function, reduce pain, and heal injuries.
Soft tissue technique: This approach applies pressure to the muscle area around the spine. It consists of rhythmic stretching, deep pressure, and traction. Muscle energy technique: With this technique, the patient is directed to use his or her muscles from a precise position and in a specific direction against a counter force applied by the doctor.
Thrust technique: This approach uses high velocity forces to restore motion to a joint to reduce or eliminate the signs of tissue changes, asymmetry, restricted movement and tenderness. This is the “cracking” technique of manipulation.
Counter-strain technique: During this approach, the patient is moved away from a position where motion is restricted to one of greater comfort. Our clinic provides cold laser to augment your adjustment at the physician’s recommendation.
