Osteopathic Treatment Q & A

What is osteopathic treatment?

Osteopathic manipulative treatment offers a highly trained, non-invasive, hands-on approach to restoring health to all of your body systems. Studied techniques are used to work with the connection between your bones, muscles, and nerves, focusing on the body working as a whole unit. 

The team at Stephen Renzi Medical PC looks for the root cause of your issue and then analyzes how it might affect other parts of your body. As your provider applies controlled pressure to specific areas, your blood and lymphatic fluids begin to flow and move around, which can begin the healing process in the malfunctioning parts of your body.

Osteopathic treatment can diagnose, treat, and prevent injury and illness. It can also be used as a complementary therapy to conventional treatments.

The gentleness of the therapy makes it safe for almost anyone, including infants, pregnant women, and those struggling with osteoporosis.

How does osteopathic treatment work?

During your treatment, your trained specialist gently massages your joints and muscles, slowly manipulating their movement to promote healing and ease pain. The therapy can also improve your mobility.

It can be used to complement your medications or help reduce your need for them. In many cases, it can prevent your need for surgical intervention.

What conditions can osteopathic treatment help?

Osteopathic treatment can be beneficial if you have:

  • Arthritis
  • Sinus issues
  • Asthma
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Acid reflux
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
  • Muscle pain
  • Migraines
  • Menstrual pain
  • Tendinitis
  • Knee pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Infant colic

During your therapy, you can communicate with the team to let them know your comfort level with gentle, hands-on manipulation.  

What can I expect during osteopathic treatment?

Your highly specialized treatment might include:

  • Myofascial pain release
  • Cranial osteopathy to balance
  • Stretching of your soft tissues
  • Contracting and relaxing specific areas

As the therapy begins to work, your body experiences improved blood flow, restoration to your muscle balance, and proper function of any structural abnormalities. After your treatment, you should feel a deep sense of relaxation and restfulness.
