Osteopathic Articulation and Manipulations
Osteopathic Articulation and Manipulation is an additional manual therapy to target a stimulation to the body’s natural health process encouraging a healthy movement in joints, muscles and tendons by targeting a correction to mechanical imbalances.
Osteopathic concepts originally began by considering the interlink between joint lesions and their relation to anatomical displacement and dysfunction. Over the years, the development of Osteopathic techniques has allowed a continuous growth to the method of techniques application and its implication of muscular movement and stresses.
Osteopathic Articulation and Manipulation uses a unique and gentle approach to additional therapies to assist and enable functional movement. Articulation is the process of taking a joint’s movement to it’s natural barrier and creating a mechanical deformation to the fibres elastic properties – allowing a healing rebinding of fibres to the structures original shape and size. Manipulation involves a stronger, more instant affect through a Hight Velocity Thrust (HVT). HVT manipulations involve taking a joint past its normal range of motion but remains within its anatomical range of motions.
Osteopathic Articulation and Manipulation can increase a range of anatomical functions including;
- Joint stiffness
- Increasing Range of Motion
- Reducing muscular tone (where required)
- Reduce Joint irritability
