Osteopath Treatment Edmonton


Welcome to our West Edmonton Wellness's information page on osteopathy, a form of complementary and alternative medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system and its impact on overall health and wellbeing. Here, we will explore the principles of osteopathy, its techniques and benefits, as well as how it can contribute to your overall wellness.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a holistic approach to healthcare that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the body's structure and function. It was developed in the late 19th century by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still, who believed that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Osteopaths work on the principle that the body's systems are interrelated, and any disruption in one area can affect the overall balance and health of the body.

The Principles of Osteopathy:

Osteopathy is based on four key principles:

  1. The body is a unit: Osteopaths view the body as an integrated whole, where all systems and structures are interconnected. They believe that the body's structure, including the bones, muscles, ligaments, and organs, are interdependent and should function harmoniously.
  2. The body has self-healing mechanisms: Osteopathy recognizes the body's natural ability to self-regulate and heal. Osteopaths aim to support and enhance this inherent healing capacity by addressing any restrictions or dysfunctions in the musculoskeletal system.
  3. Structure and function are interrelated: Osteopaths understand that the structure of the body influences its function, and vice versa. They focus on improving the mobility and alignment of the musculoskeletal system to optimize overall function and promote wellbeing.
  4. Treatment should address the underlying cause: Osteopaths seek to identify and address the root cause of a patient's condition, rather than merely treating the symptoms. By addressing the underlying cause, osteopathy aims to provide long-term relief and enhance overall health.

Techniques Used in Osteopathy:

Osteopaths use a wide range of techniques to assess, diagnose, and treat various conditions. These techniques can include:

  1. Soft tissue manipulation: Osteopaths use gentle stretching and pressure techniques to release tension, improve circulation, and reduce pain in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
  2. Joint mobilization: Osteopaths apply precise movements to joints to improve their range of motion, reduce stiffness, and restore normal function.
  3. Muscle energy techniques: These involve the patient actively contracting and relaxing specific muscles while the osteopath applies resistance. This technique helps improve muscle balance and joint function.
  4. Manipulation: Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) involves the application of high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts to specific joints to restore mobility and alleviate pain.
  5. Visceral manipulation: Osteopaths may also use gentle techniques to assess and treat restrictions or imbalances in the organs and their surrounding tissues. This can help improve organ function and overall wellbeing.

Benefits of Osteopathy:

Osteopathy can provide numerous benefits for individuals of all ages and with various health conditions. Some of the key benefits include:

  1. Pain relief: Osteopathy can help alleviate acute and chronic pain, including back pain, neck pain, joint pain, and headaches.
  2. Improved mobility: By addressing restrictions in the musculoskeletal system, osteopathy can enhance joint mobility and range of motion, making movement easier and more comfortable.
  3. Enhanced posture: Osteopathy aims to improve posture by correcting imbalances and misalignments in the body's structure. This can reduce strain on muscles and joints and prevent future injuries.
  4. Stress reduction: Osteopathic treatment can help relieve tension and stress held in the body, promoting relaxation
