Muscular Osteopathy

In PHHC, we define Muscular Osteopathy under a full set of different techniques (like a tool box) that target muscles. Each has its own therapeutic specificity and outcomes.

Among these, the most commonly used are:

   – Muscle Energy (Neuromuscular): a gentle corrective action using counter-pressures.

   – Cyriax (Deep Transverse Friction):  an analgesic action using local vasodilation reactions.

   – Reflex (Recall): a corrective action using muscles memory addressing.

   – Trigger Points: an instant pain reliefby combining targeted pressures & strectches

   – Myofascial Release: an intense experience stimulating both blood & lymphatic system.

How Can Muscular Osteopathy help You ?

Since muscles are everywhere in your body, applying muscular osteopathic techniques will effectively help for a  wide range of conditions and symptoms. Below are some of the most common cases (but not limited to) our osteopaths can address while using this approach:

  • Muscular Cramps & Pains
  • Back Pain, Lumbago
  • Limb Pains (knee, leg, arm, hand…)
  • Frozen Shoulder
  • Sciatica
  • Shin Splints
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Plantar fasciitis (foot) pain
  • Whiplash
  • Muscular Spasms
  • Tendinitis
  • Minor sports / dance injuries & tensions
  • Post Surgery Rehabilitation
  • Uncomplicated mechanical Neck Pain
  • Headaches / Migraine
  • Torticollis
  • Tennis Elbow

How is Muscular Osteopathy Performed?

As the osteopath needs to access your muscles and related tissue from his treatment, you will need to wear a sport outfit. This way you will be more comfortable.

Some techniques are practiced seated, others lying down (on the side, stomach or back). Some even require you to take an  active part (specific exercices, stretchings,etc…).
