Performance Osteopathy

Whether you are a professional athlete or the average person who exercises to keep fit, you are at risk of injury when your joint or muscle flexibility is reduced or you have specific muscle imbalances or weaknesses.
Chronic strain patterns have the ability to affect the biomechanics and flexibility of your joints and all their surrounding structures. Therefore, it is often necessary to release chronic strains from past injuries and traumas to not just help you recover from your acute injury but also prevent injuries in the future.
On your first visit, I will thoroughly analyze your posture, movement patterns, physical systems and medical history to determine what imbalances lead to your injury.
From there, I will apply one or a combination of the following treatments:
Osteo-articular corrections – old and poorly healed lesions can benefit from these precisely applied techniques
Myofascial release – to release muscle tension
Visceral normalization – allows to improve posture and overall mobility
Nerve flossing – mobilizes the nerves to help relieve painful symptoms cause by irritated or compressed nerves
Cupping – to increase local blood circulation to promote cell repair and relieve muscle tension
Taping – increases blood flow to the injured area and decreases swelling which alleviates pain
My techniques are geared to get your body back to optimal order / function so that you get to go back to enjoying the fitness activities you love.
I’d be happy to communicate with your medical practitioner, personal trainer, yoga therapist and/or massage therapist to help develop a total health plan.
