Popular Conditions Treated
Neck Pain: Osteopathic practitioners may use various techniques, such as soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, and muscle energy techniques, to relieve muscle tension, improve joint mobility, and enhance blood flow in the neck area. This can help alleviate pain and improve the overall function of the neck.
Back Pain: Osteopathic treatment for back pain often focuses on addressing spinal misalignments and improving posture. Techniques such as spinal manipulation, myofascial release, and muscle energy techniques (METs) can restore proper spinal alignment, release muscle tension, and enhance blood flow to the affected area.
Headaches & Migraines: Osteopathic treatment for headaches and migraines might involve addressing underlying issues related to muscle tension, spinal alignment, and cranial dysfunction. Techniques like cranial osteopathy, spinal manipulation, and soft tissue work may help alleviate the tension and improve blood flow, reducing headache symptoms.

Techniques such as spinal manipulation, myofascial release, and stretching can help to reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve, alleviate pain, and improve mobility.

This can help alleviate pain and restore normal function following a whiplash injury.
