Osteopathic manual therapy encompasses a range of methodologies and techniques based on palpatory assessment. A main concept of osteopathy is to release obstructions and realign structures by working with the inherent rhythms of the body, thereby promoting self-regulation. This may include alignment of bone and visceral/organic structures, releasing tension in the muscles and fascia, assisting nerve pathways and passage of vital fluids such as arterial, venous, and lymphatic systems, as well brain and spinal fluid via the cranio-sacral mechanism.
A comprehensive health interview is done along with a full body assessment to look for areas in possible relation to symptoms, as well to examine significant events which the body has been through, involving compensation or adaptations, or even the influence of gravity on posture, or repetitive activities. Important events could be surgeries, illnesses, injuries (e.g. falls or whiplash), and even emotional events can stress the body. Past events can relate to, or compound current symptoms and addressing them can assist with improvements. An example is scar tissue preventing mobility, or causing a pull to distant structures.
Others who might consider osteopathy are those experiencing chronic pain, digestive symptoms, headaches, fatigue, hormonal disturbances, or who have an interest in maintaining a healthy body and physical function. Additionally, any individual can benefit from the opportunity to experience more balance between the sympathetic ‘flight-or-flight’ state of this busy ‘modern world’ and the ‘rest-and-digest’ parasympathetic state, being increasingly recognized as decreasing inflammation.
Shockwave works to harness your own body’s innate ability to heal itself. The “shock” in Shockwave Therapy does not refer to an electrical current, rather it refers to an impact wave that travels extremely quickly through your tissues. The shockwave causes cavitation (creation and popping of microscopic gas bubbles) in the tissue, imparts a deep vibration, increases circulation, physically breaks down adhesions and scar tissue, and evokes a complicated series of biochemical reactions all to wake up your body’s own healing mechanisms.
Our orthotics are produced using a gait scan, a computerized step analysis that generates hard data to which not only pressure points are important, but more so the timing and order of how your foot contacts throughout your step. This is a very effective tool that reduces the reliance on error prone impression techniques or distracting video analysis. Timing and order of your step cannot be observed by video analysis. The orthotic that is built is fully customized and customizable. That means that not only is the basic contour specific to your specific requirements but that any necessary postings, cushioning, and unique topcovers can be added.
