Should I get an Osteopathic Evaluation?
I recommend an osteopathic evaluation if you suffer from conditions such as:
- Back pain (new or chronic)
- Shoulder pain
- TMJ (temporomandibular joint) Syndrome
- Significant menstrual cramps
- Any musculoskeletal issue
These are just examples of some things that may benefit from osteopathic treatment.
An osteopathic evaluation includes a thorough history as well as physical evaluation of the area of concern, followed by osteopathic manipulation techniques as appropriate.
Osteopathic manipulation consistents of a variety of musculoskeletal techniques aimed at freeing up the restriction in the area of concern.
