Oakville Osteopathy

Osteopathic manual practitioners employ a holistic approach to identify and treat the underlying cause of a patient’s primary concerns rather than just addressing the symptoms. The overarching goal of osteopathic treatment is to re-establish the equilibrium among various body systems, enhancing the body’s innate ability to self-heal.

What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathy is a form of alternative medicine that emphasizes the hands-on manipulation of the body’s muscular and skeletal systems.

Osteopathic manual practitioners utilize a non-invasive, drug-free approach fortified by a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics. The philosophy underpinning osteopathy is founded on four core principles:

  • Every structure in the body contributes to its overall function.
  • The body’s natural fluid flows—encompassing lymphatic, vascular, and neurological systems—must be preserved and optimized.
  • The human body functions as an integrated whole, interacting harmoniously with its physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive systems.
  • When free from restrictions, the body possesses an inherent ability to heal itself.

These principles guide osteopathic practitioners in diagnosing and treating patients holistically, aiming to achieve equilibrium and natural self-healing capabilities within the body.

Is Osteopathy Good for Joint & Muscle Pain?

Osteopathy can serve as an effective treatment for muscle and joint pain. During an osteopathic session, the practitioner employs hands-on techniques like massages, stretches, and targeted thrusts to stimulate blood circulation in the affected areas. This alleviates pain, improves mobility, and expedites the healing process.


Joint pain is commonly experienced by individuals who have sustained injuries, are active in sports, suffer from chronic conditions like arthritis, or are dealing with emotional factors such as stress, anxiety, or depression. While osteopathy may not be able to reverse the damage caused by chronic conditions, it can slow down the disease’s progression. Additionally, it can offer relief from pain and improve mobility, enhancing the overall quality of life for the individual.

What techniques do osteopathic manual practitioners use?

An osteopath employs various techniques to address muscle tension, joint stiffness, and overall body alignment. The practitioner may use massage, muscle stretching, and joint articulation to relieve muscular tension and enhance joint mobility. In some instances, thrust techniques may be employed to adjust misaligned joints. Although these adjustments may cause the joints to pop or click, the process is generally not painful for the patient.

Specific osteopathic techniques may include:

  • Myofascial Release: A technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the myofascial connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion.
  • Fascial Unwinding: A gentle technique that allows the body’s fascia to ‘unwind’ itself and release stored tension.
  • Myotensive Techniques & Still Techniques: These involve applying pressure to muscles while moving a joint in specific directions, aiming to relax the muscles and enhance mobility.
  • Exaggeration Techniques: The practitioner exaggerates the body’s distorted positions to facilitate the body’s self-correcting mechanisms.
  • Cranial Techniques: These techniques focus on the subtle movements of the skull and their influence on the cerebrospinal fluid and overall health.
  • Visceral and Neural Mobilization: Techniques focused on the organs and nerves to improve physiological function and promote health.
  • Lymphatic and Visceral Pump Techniques: Methods to stimulate the lymphatic system and enhance the body’s natural detoxification process.
  • Shockwave, Ultrasound, IFC, Stims: These are various machine-aided techniques like shockwave therapy, ultrasound therapy, Interferential Current Therapy (IFC), and electrical stimulation (Stims), used for pain relief, muscle stimulation, and improving circulation.

This comprehensive approach allows osteopaths to treat various conditions effectively, enhancing the patient’s overall well-being.

What should I wear to see an osteopathic manual practitioner?

For your osteopathic or physiotherapy session, the type of treatment you’ll be receiving may necessitate the removal of some of your outer clothing to allow the practitioner easy access to the areas that need treatment. We recommend wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing to your appointment to ensure your comfort and facilitate effective treatment.

What to expect during an osteopathic treatment session

Your visit to an osteopathic manual practitioner will begin with a comprehensive assessment to identify areas of weakness, tenderness, restriction, or strain in your body. This assessment is tailored to address your chief complaints and health history, offering the practitioner essential insights into your condition.

Once the assessment is complete, a treatment plan specifically designed for your needs will be discussed with you. This personalized approach aims to treat the symptoms and underlying causes of your discomfort or illness.

Your treatment session may incorporate various techniques, depending on what the assessment reveals about your condition.

Your initial appointment will typically be between 60 to 75 minutes to allow time for the assessment and the treatment. Subsequent treatment sessions usually last between 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the complexity of your condition and the treatment required.

These sessions aim to bring about sustainable relief from pain and other symptoms and enhance your overall well-being.
