Osteopathy

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a gentle and safe manual therapy that is centered around treating the whole person. This means that your osteopathic practitioner will listen attentively to your concerns while taking into account the various factors that can influence pain or discomfort. Your practitioner will ask you questions relating to your medical history and the details of your symptoms. This information will help your practitioner to develop a treatment plan with you that is tailored towards your individual needs and goals. Osteopathic practitioners understand that physical problems can be caused by emotional stress and strain, and work to help you find the source of your problem.


Osteopathy uses gentle manual techniques to help decrease or eliminate pain. These include a variety of soft-tissue and joint mobilization techniques such as:

  • Soft-tissue techniques

  • Myofascial release

  • Cranial sacral osteopathy

  • Visceral manipulation

  • Muscle Energy Technique (contract-relax type techniques)

  • Neuromuscular reeducation

  • Manual cueing for exercise form

  • Assisted stretching & supported movement
     

Each treatment is tailored towards the individual’s specific needs and generally involves little to no discomfort.

In addition to manual techniques, osteopathy sessions often include an educational component where your osteopathic practitioner will provide you with information to help you to make sense of your pain and will provide you with movement strategies, modifications to daily activities, or exercises to give you control over your pain management.

Osteopathy includes hands-on treatment to help your body’s mechanical function in order to ease pain, and to restore movement and balance to your body’s physical health. Anne-Marie Mougeot is a highly trained and experienced osteopathic practitioner providing osteopathic treatment for people of all ages with a special interest in chronic pain.

Person-Centered Care

Because when it comes to pain management, there is no "one size fits all" approach.

Osteopathy does not use a set of "recipes" to treat conditions or symptoms, but rather works with the individual person and aims to find the root cause of the problem.
