Treatment Modalities

During an osteopathic session at Hayer Health, different modalities are utilized depending on the session’s goals and your overall system condition, as determined during the initial evaluation. These techniques are applied in a customized manner, tailored to meet the specific needs of your body, rather than being performed upon request.

Joint manipulation
Different methods are employed to tackle joint dysfunctions, ranging from energetic impulses to gentle adjustments with low amplitude and low velocity.

Visceral manipulation
A gentle therapy that emphasizes the support and movement of organs, ensuring they function well with surrounding structures like bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves, and lymphatics.

Cranio-sacral therapy
Cranio-Sacral therapy uses gentle techniques to treat the cranio-sacral system, connecting the head to the spine and pelvis. These methods target tensions in the nervous system, promoting the proper regulation of all bodily systems.

Myofascial technique
Myofascial techniques involve manipulating soft tissues like fascia, ligaments, and muscles. This results in muscle relaxation, improved blood and fluid circulation, and increased range of motion at the local, regional, or global levels.

Muscle energy technique
MET is a hands-on therapy commonly used in Osteopathy. It involves using a muscle’s own energy through gentle contractions to relax and lengthen the muscle. This technique relies on the patient actively participating and is based on principles like Autogenic Inhibition and Reciprocal Inhibition.

Fluidic protocol
The fluidic protocol is a palpation skill used by practitioners to check the flow of fluids in the body. It helps identify if there are any issues with fluid circulation in specific areas, offering relief from problems like concussions and joint pain.

Exercise analysis and prescription
In osteopathic sessions, we discuss your physical activities and habits to check if any regular movements or exercises might be done incorrectly, contributing to the issues we’re addressing.
