Osteopathic Manipulation

Reduce your pain and increase your mobility. Using soft tissue and joint manipulation, your physician will correct misalignments that are causing pain and inflammation. This relieves back and neck pain, sports injuries, and repetitive stress injuries.

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.
