Manual Osteopathy & Combined Corrective Exercise Session
Combine your manual osteopathy treatments with rehabilitative and corrective exercises in order to to regain flexibility and strength, prevent future injuries, and optimize your performance.
This combined approach is two-fold, utilizing both manual therapy, and exercise to correct any issues such as:
- Tight hip flexors
- Tennis elbow
- Shoulder impingement
- Low back pain
- Runners’ knee
- Plantar fasciitis
- … and more
Commonly treated areas includes: foot and ankle, knee, pelvis and hip region, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and spine (neck and low back).
Rehabilitative and corrective exercise can be a great tool to help bridge the gap between therapy and your return to your everyday workout routine. It can also be helpful in preparing you for an upcoming surgery (prehab), or dealing with post-surgery issues (rehab).
Corrective exercise can be used to help combat the impact of repetitive motions that occur daily and may leave you more at risk for injury, joint dysfunction, or pain. Examples of repetitive motions include sitting, driving, working at the computer, manual labour, bending, and so on.
Often, corrective exercise is the foundation of a years-long fitness journey that can lead to lower rates of injury and discomfort. Corrective exercise will stabilize joints, increase mobility, make the body stronger, and improve overall performance. It also serves as a strong foundation to keep your joints healthy, your muscles supple, and to reduce pain.
For those with physical impairments or different abilities, treatment and exercise prescription will also improve functioning, increase movement, and enhance your quality of life. It is great for all ages - from young children, to seniors.
At your appointment, a full osteopathic and movement assessment will be conducted on bodily dysfunctions, posture, joint range of motion, and strength. A manual osteopathic treatment, together with exercise prescription, will be provided in order to further correct imbalances and help your body get back to functioning at optimal levels. Additionally, specific muscles that are weak (inhibited) or tight (hypertonic) will be re-educated and strengthened or stretched. You will leave the session with a greater understanding and insight about what your body is telling you about what it needs.
In summary, the benefits of manual osteopathy combined with rehabilitative exercise include:
- Faster healing times
- Reduced muscular tension, stiffness, and soreness
- Improved posture
