What is Osteopathic? The mission to health with body mechanical balance.

The solution of removal of traumatic strains to allows the body to balance tensions and return to its normal function prior to injury.


The Philosophical approach of an osteopathic treatment is unlike any other conventional or ancillary health approach. It stands alone in its focus on finding health and balance, as opposed to find “disease”.


Osteopathy is the only medical philosophy that does not assert force or an expectation of what a body or patient should be; it does not attempt to change the patient to suit pre-existing expectations.


Because it is a mechanical philosophy, the problems that a client presents are often viewed as the result of multiple accumulated mechanical disruptions and displacements over time. Because the body is functionally a unit, composed of the interworking of multiple systems, a local problem does not always have a local cause. The actual cause may be remote, dispensing tensions along and out toward the rest of the body. With a minor injury, the body adapts to the injury by spreading out the tensions and returns itself to the relative normal function of walking and moving about. When a body acquires more injuries, its ability to distribute tensions remotely and balance itself becomes more difficult. When the body can no longer adapt, the client feels pain. When pain is present, it affects the client's functioning; the body can no longer accommodate the accumulated injuries and the patient has decompensated.


Osteopathy is unique, because hands-on diagnosis and treatment are focused on removing or reducing the traumatic strain trapped in the muscle and tissue memory of the body. Removal of traumatic strains allows the body to balance tensions and return to its normal function prior to injury.
