I was wondering if other members have had success with
My pain management doctor wants to have me start seeing an Ostepath. At this point, we know that pain medications help, but thats not the long term answer. Deep Tissue massage works great for my thoracic area, but hasnt helped a lot in my cervical area. Aqua therapy helps alot with my lumbar. Acupuncture works 50% of the time and for me, its not covered by insurance.
So, I am always game for another approach
Osteopathy is an approach to healthcare that emphasizes the role of the musculoskeletal system in health and disease. In most countries osteopathy is a form of complementary medicine, emphasizing a holistic approach and the skilled use of a range of manual and physical treatment interventions (osteopathic manipulative medicine, or OMM in the United States and Canada) in the prevention and treatment of disease. In practice, this most commonly relates to musculoskeletal problems such as back and neck pain.
