Osteopathy is a non-invasive treatment that involves manual manipulation to rectify structural imbalances in the body, relieve pain and improve circulation. At Bruggemeyer’s Osteopathic Practice, you can expect quality services aiming to strengthen your musculoskeletal framework. What makes this treatment appealing to patients is that it takes a holistic approach to healthcare. Take a look at some of the treatment options offered at Bruggemeyer’s. 

Slipped Disc 

A slipped disc occurs when a soft tissue between your spinal bones pushes out. This condition can cause: 

  • Neck pain 
  • Lower back pain 
  • Muscle weakness 
  • Numbness or tingling in the arms, shoulders, hands, back, legs, or feet. 

Although the condition can result from a strain or sprain, at times, there is no obvious reason. With osteopathy treatment and an active lifestyle, one can resume a normal life.  

Joint Strain 

A joint strain is the overstretching, twisting, or tearing of the tendons and muscles. The condition often occurs in the lower back. Some common symptoms associated with joint strain include swelling, limited flexibility, muscle spasm, and pain around the affected area. If you have this condition, you can visit Bruggemeyer’s Osteopathic Practice for consultation and treatment. 

Muscle/ Tendon Strain And Ligament Sprain 

Muscle strains and ligament sprains can be caused by falls, twists, and hits. Also, if you are a sports person playing sports like boxing, hockey, and football, you have a high chance of straining or spraining your muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This condition will be accompanied by swelling, bruising, and mild to severe pain in the affected area. Osteopathic treatment can soothe the pain, prevent health issues and allow the body to heal itself by boosting how the body functions as a unit. 

Nerve Root Impingement 

Nerve root impingement occurs when the nerve roots have been compressed or damaged in the spine. This condition can result in pain in the neck, back, and limbs, muscle weakness, and increased sensitivity. Through spinal manipulation and soft tissue massage techniques, one can eliminate discomfort. 

Bursitis 

Bursitis is the irritation or inflammation of a bursa sac. These sacs are located all over the body, and their role is to ease the friction or rubbing between tissues, muscles, tendons, bones, and skin. The common areas for this condition are the elbow, shoulder, knee, and hip. Treatment at Bruggemeyer’s Osteopathic Practice can help increase range of motion, allowing you to move your limbs with minimal pain. 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 

This is a common condition affecting the hand. It is characterized by numbness, pain, and general weakness and discomfort in the hand or wrist. The conditions can even make it hard to handle simple tasks like holding a book, writing, or holding the steering wheel. 

Adhesive Capsulitis 

Adhesive capsulitis or frozen shoulder is a painful condition that restricts shoulder movement. The condition is common among adults aged 40 to 60 or individuals that have suffered a shoulder injury. 

Osteopathy treatment can help address any of the conditions mentioned above. A mechanical therapist like Habib Chharawala will come up with a range of treatments, including relaxation techniques, exercise routines, and body awareness sessions to show you how you can move the body gently. You can visit Habib at Bruggemeyer’s Osteopathic Practice for consultation and treatment. Bruggemeyer’s has been dedicated to helping their patients for almost 3 decades, and they have excellent reviews online. Do not allow pain and discomfort to prevent you from enjoying your life.
