Osteopathic Techniques

Muscle Energy techniques:


Muscle Energy is a very gentle way to mobilise, and align the spine and associated soft tissues.  Headaches are often associated with tension and subsequent mall alignment of the upper neck muscles and vertebrae.  This technique involves accurate positioning of the joint, then gently contracting the muscles against resistance, followed by release.  This very safe and effective release restores muscle balance and joint alignment.

Osteopathic Muscle energy of the Sacro-Iliac-Joints (SIJ) is one of the most effective ways to assess and treat a major cause of persistent Low back pain.  When combined with deep tissue releases (Myofascial Release) to the associated soft tissues such as Piriformis, and the patient is shown self stretching to the same. the vicious circle of Low Back Pain can be fixed.


When used in treatment of the pelvis (sacro-iliac joints), it can assist treatment of difficult groin strain, or relieve lower back pain where treatment of the lumbar spine alone has failed.

Osteopathic type manipulation:

Osteopathic Manipulation uses a soft hand approach, and very specifically directed low amplitude thrust procedures minimising the chance of going too far and causing injury.  MLMR: minimal lever mid range, describes manipulation which is very safe, gentle and effective.
