Manual Osteopathy

Manual Osteopaths identify, assess, and treat the bodyʼs structures and rhythms using a gentle, hands-on approach. This foundation is called osteopathic palpation. Manual Osteopaths develop a sensitive sense of touch to master osteopathic palpation. Osteopathic palpation is what makes manual osteopathy different from other forms of therapy.

Using techniques from lensen, an osteopathic articular technique, soft tissue manipulation – facial release, cranial osteopathy, and visceral manipulation we assess the bodies structure and function. Manual osteopaths look at the body as a whole, to restore balance to the normal physiological function of the bodies systems. Good health is not a state but a search for equilibrium.

Techniques That May Be Used in Your Treatment Include:

  • Muscle energy – muscle relaxation through muscle contraction
  • Facial release – soft tissue work
  • Craniosacral – gentle movements of the bones of the skull and sacrum
  • Visceral – gentle mobilization of the organs
  • Massage – soft tissue work

Manual Osteopathy Can Help With:

  • headaches
  • back pain
  • whiplash / MVA
  • digestive issues
  • pre and post pregnancy
  • TMJ dysfunction

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Please wear comfortable clothing to your appointment as it may be needed for assessment and some techniques require gentle stretching and mobilization. You can expect to move around more than in a massage treatment, some techniques will be done side lying. If more soft tissue work is needed you may be asked to disrobe but you will be covered as you would in a massage treatment.

Our whole family ages 23 to 93 have benefited from trigenics treatments. From shoulders and wrists to low back and hips we have found this non-invasive treatment to work wonders.

Dr. Tara has been a godsend for me! Having had issues with my back for many years, I’ve never had the long term results prior to seeing her that I now have. I’ve seen other chiropractors and had other treatments. She introduced me to Trigenics as part of my treatments and honestly has not felt this amazing in a very, very long time. If you’re looking for a caring genuine and friendly chiropractor I would definitely recommend Tara as the chiropractor for you to see!
