Osteopathy

Osteopathy Medicine To Help Release Pain

Osteopathy is a branch of medicine that focuses on the musculoskeletal system, neurological or fluidity system (arteries, veins, lymph). When a blockage occurs, our brain sets up a deviation path via one of these systems, in order to bypass this fixed point. We then have the creation of a postural emergency system. Osteopathy will aid in correcting the postural system through manual therapy. Osteopaths use a combination of massages, stretching, and pressure to relieve pain and improve mobility. Osteopathy is often used to treat back pain, neck pain, and headaches. Osteopathy is also used to treat sports injuries and other conditions. 

Osteopathy is safe and effective for most people. Osteopathy is a drug-free treatment option that can be used to complement or replace traditional medical treatments. Osteopathy is covered by most health insurance plans. Osteopaths are licensed and regulated by state medical boards. Osteopathy is an evidence-based medicine. Osteopaths use a holistic approach to medicine. Osteopathy recognizes the mind-body connection. Osteopaths treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. Osteopathy is a safe and effective treatment option for many conditions. If you are looking for an alternative to traditional medicine, osteopathy may be right for you.

We've Helped People Just Like You

Dr. Michael Friedman and his chiropractic services are the best! I no longer look like the hunchback of Notre Dame. And, better yet, the pain is gone. I spend all my working hours in front of a computer. That resulted in lots of neck and shoulder pain. After a couple of months of regular treatments and, now only periodic adjustments, I am rarely in pain. Thank you, Dr. Friedman!
