MYSOSKELETAL OSTEOPATHIC BODYWORK
Myoskeletal Bodywork is based on the principles of Osteopathy and Structural Integration. Many of my clients would normally see an Osteopath.
Myoskeletal techniques are combined with NeutoKinetic Therapy assessments. This way we only release, mobilise and activate what is safe and prudent to do so.
Appropriate techniques including mobilisations, soft tissue release, muscle energy techniques, targeted fascial release & stimulation, neuromuscular re-education and clinical massage are used to treat muscles, fascia, ligaments, joint capsules, the skeletal and nervous systems to restore balance, improve function and reduce pain.
The idea behind Structural Integration is if someone's body can be aligned properly, his or her health problems can be dramatically reduced, because the body will work as a whole. Osteopathy shares this idea, arguing that many chronic health conditions are related to musculoskeletal problems.
Below: Fibula Head Release to address problems in the Deep Longitudinal Subsystem - which often contributes to SIJ and Lower Back Pain. This would only be released or mobilised after Neurological assessments have deemed it safe and prudent to do so, whilst an additional part of the bodies compensation strategy is also addressed to restore functional balance, so that results last.
