Revive Osteopathy is a Classical Osteopathic practice serving the city of Calgary. Revive exists to bring life back to your overall functioning and help you find health again.
Osteopathic Practitioner, former athlete, adventure addict and lover of all things science.
Frequency of treatment varies person to person and is more easily determined during the initial appointment as it case specific. Because this practice aims to facilitate the body’s natural healing capabilities, the body will be continuing to heal and right itself back to normal even in the days outside of treatment. Some consistency is required in the beginning, but the goal is to eliminate dependence on treatment and get the patient to a place where they are functional and do not require external intervention.
Osteopaths use manual therapy to facilitate the natural healing capabilities of the body, strengthen the overall framework, and provide stability within all systems of the body. The body is self healing and self regulating, and your structure and function are reciprocally interrelated. We use manual techniques to adjust the skeletal framework, remove obstruction to the skin, muscles and fascia connecting all of it, to allow for proper blood supply and nerve supply to all parts. When this is accomplished, the body is then able to heal itself.
Osteopathy helps with anything related to the anatomy and physiology of the body. It is the understanding that structure and function are interrelated, and when all parts are moving as they should, we have harmony within the body. The question should really be “What does Osteopathy NOT help with”. This would be a much shorter list of things, but something that we could differentiate right away and guide you to the appropriate person do deal with it.
