Generations Family Practice specialists discuss your symptoms and medical history with you to find out if you're a candidate for osteopathic manipulation.

What should I expect during osteopathic manipulation?

During osteopathic manipulation at Generations Family Practice, you lie down on a comfortable exam table. Your osteopathic specialist uses their hands or specialized devices to apply gentle pressure to targeted muscles, other soft tissues, or joints. They may use continuous or quick, sudden pressure techniques for certain areas of your body.

Your provider could recommend that you change positions or hold or release your breath during certain times throughout treatment. 

What happens after osteopathic manipulation?

After osteopathic manipulation, you may feel tired, energized, or a little bit sore. Make sure to drink plenty of water and keep your body moving, but avoid strenuous activity for the rest of the day if your specialist asks you to.
