The goal of osteopathic therapy is to optimize the self-healing abilities of the body. Treatment aims to relieve pain, ease muscle tension, restore movement and joint motion, align posture, release restrictions around organs, balance the nervous system, dissipate stress, revitalize energy, optimize blood, lymphatic and cerebrospinal fluid circulation, and improve function, health and well-being.

The body is all connected and functions as a whole and symptoms often show up in different areas from where the problem is located. A whole-body assessment and treatment approach is used to address all of the related components.

General Guidelines:

  • Issues less than 3 months old: 1-2 treatments (1-2 weeks apart)
  • Issues more than 3 months old: 3-4 treatments (1-2 weeks apart, then increased to 3-4 weeks apart)
  • Tune-ups: 1-3 months apart
