Newest Osteopathic Practitioner, Andy (Di) Le
What is Osteopathy?
Osteopathy is built upon an understanding of human anatomy and physiology, with a focus on ensuring the body is optimally aligned to allow for normal movement. If the body's structural balance is impaired due to injury or another condition, local circulation can be restricted, making it harder for the circulatory system to detoxify the area; likewise, nerve paths may also become imbalanced. These issues can contribute to pain, illness and potentially serious diseases without proper treatment. Osteopathic therapy can help correct these issues and restore optimal health.
Osteopathy is an effective and safe way to maintain optimal health. It is a manual therapy focused with how the body moves together as a unit. Osteopathy understands that pain or issues in one area may cause compensations in another area, so it's important to look at the whole body when assessing a problem. Osteopathic practitioners use various techniques such as joint articulation, visceral and cranial release, and myofascial release to help restore homeostasis for their patients. The result? Reduced stress on areas like knees and hips and symptomatic relief - plus improved functional biomechanics throughout the entire body, meaning better posture, reduced headaches and improved digestion.
What should you expect our of your osteopathic session?
During your consultation, our experienced Osteopath will conduct a comprehensive assessment, taking into account your medical history, lifestyle, and specific symptoms. This assessment will help identify any imbalances or dysfunctions in your musculoskeletal system that may be contributing to your lower back pain. Through Manual Therapy techniques such as soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, gentle stretching, and spinal adjustments, the Osteopath will work to improve your mobility, relieve tension, and restore proper alignment within your body.
In addition to the hands-on treatment, Osteopaths emphasize the importance of postural education.

These recommendations may include incorporating regular exercise, stress management techniques, and healthy habits into your daily routine, contributing to long-term pain management and overall well-being.
