The Osteopathic physicians’ highly developed sense of touch allows them to palpate the patient’s “living anatomy” (i.e. flow of fluids, motion and texture of tissues, and structural make-up) and apply manual treatment where needed. The Osteopathic physician gently exerts a precise amount of force in order to:
- Enhance the movement of body fluids.
- Eliminate dysfunction in the tissues.
- Enable the release of compressed bones and joints.
Osteopathic manipulation restores normal function enabling the body’s own natural healing powers to restore full health.
