Manual osteopaths use hands-on skills for investigation and treatment of the whole body, using holistic methods to find and treat the root cause of your pain.
Locating restrictions and applying osteopathic techniques helps you regain proper function. Techniques include osteopathic joint mobilization, muscle energy techniques, visceral (organs), and soft tissue therapy. The ultimate goal? Getting your body back in alignment! When the body is in alignment, we enjoy our health, if not, the result is often disease.
Do you struggle with TMJ pain?
From a manual osteopath’s perspective, treating TMJ (temporomandibular joint) dysfunction means looking at the joint itself as well as the surrounding areas to make sure there are no restrictions that will further delay healing times.
This means you can expect to have mobilization of the TMJ with release of the tight surrounding muscles, as well as assessing, and treating the neck, shoulders, and clavicle. In order to get to the root cause of the problem, we would discuss overall stress levels in both their personal and professional life and determine how they usually cope with these stresses.
Mélissa is focused on helping you get to the route cause of not only your TMJ pain, but anything that may be holding you back from reaching your optimal potential!
