Osteopathy for senior

Senior, as the body changes through the years and stiffness makes everyday tasks more difficult to perform, osteopathy aims to restore mobility and quality of life.

As we get older, the body loses elasticity, increasing the chance of injuring the soft tissues and bony structures.

The body also loses some of its ability to recover from injury or strains.

A lot of people think that is untreatable and inevitable, and there are no alternative but to learn to live a lesser life with their pain.



The earlier you start to begin taking care of your body, the higer your quality of life will remain for a longer amount of time.

Osteopathy’s techniques aim to maintain your health, mobility, balance, reduce further joint wear and tear and help you active in independant.

The osteopath also work with other healers to ensure a holistic approach to your healthcare.

Osteopathic Treatment Methods


Soft tissue manipulation can be used in many different ways. This method is used to evaluate the condition of tissues, ease restrictions, help the body’s fluids (blood, lymph, etc.) flow smoothly and restore function.

Optimal neuro-vascular flow helps to reduce harmful fluid retention and allows the body’s immune system to work more effectively.

Throughout the treatment, Osteopathic Manual Practitioners will continuously check on the state of the body’s tissues. The goal is to gently guide the tissue back to health without over-treating.



As the gentlest osteopathic technique, Cranial Osteopathy is also one of the most significant.

It is used to assess and treat the mobility of the skull and its contents. It may also be used to assess and treat the spine, sacrum and other parts of the body. The goal of this technique is to adjust the body’s physiology by restoring balance and optimal neuro-vascular flow surrounding the Central Nervous System and all of its autonomic centers.



Visceral Manipulation is used to effectively treat organs and viscera of the body, including the lungs, heart, liver, spleen, kidneys, stomach, pancreas, intestines, the bladder and the uterus.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners will gently move the structures themselves and the fascia that surrounds them to restore full movement.

Applied with gentle pressure, visceral manipulation corrections can improve the mobility of an organ, improve neuro-vascular flow surrounding the organ and ultimately help maximize organ function.



The osteopathic articular technique, involving gently moving two joint surfaces, is used to reduce muscle spasms, ease neurological irritations, assist in joint mobility and help reduce pain and discomfort.

It is a less forceful technique than joint manipulation.

Osteopathic Manual Practitioners will carefully prepare the soft tissues around the treatment area, positioning the patient so that there is minimal (if any) force needed to perform the maneuver.
