THE HUMAN GEOGRAPHY
Prior to studying Osteopathy, I studied Geography. So, in University, I studied physical geography, demographics, retail landscapes, resource infrastructures etc. Now, I am studying bones, muscles, blood vessels, nerves. lymphatics and organs. If you think that Geography and Osteopathy have nothing in common, consider that Geographers essentially study the spatial relationships of people, places and/or things. As a Geographic Information Analyst. I analyzed data to understand, predict and thereby empower my clients to make intelligent location decisions. A Geographer’s approach is layered, literally taking data layer by layer to analyze the interrelationships.
One of the primary principles of Osteopathy is that the body is a unit. While there are different “layers” of the body, they are all interrelated in function and form. Muscles and tendons help to physically move the body. But what allows for movement to occur practically involves the whole body. A bicep curl is not just the physical movement – there are countless of mechanical, chemical, thermal, and electrical processes involved!! Layers upon layers, all dynamically intertwined.
So, if you suffer from chronic headaches, a classically trained Osteopathic practitioner will not simply assess your head. A’ symptom’ such as a chronic headache, would be a resultant of a misalignment of anatomy. If there is a misalignment of anatomy, your body’s ability to communicate and function gets disturbed. The body is incredibly dynamic and it will do it’s best to improvise to keep things stable internally. However, over time, like a building with a poor structural foundation, things may eventually show up as a physical symptom.
An Osteopathic Practitioner will search for the cause of the symptom through motion testing, palpation, and her knowledge of anatomy and physiology. The Practitioner will ask the question of why and assess the whole body, layer by layer. A chronic headache could come from a change in the dynamics of the foot or the lower back. it could be short fascial line, a visceral, muscular or come from somewhere completely different. The possibilities are endless and they are unique to how each person’s body presents. The body is a dynamic unit, after all! Based on her assessment, the Practitioner will apply an intelligent treatment. The treatment will ease the position of bones and muscles, improve blood and lymphatic flow, calm the nervous system, and improve the vitality of the Patient. The aim of treatment is to improve coordination and integration of the body’s structures as a whole. Ultimately, this will enhance the quality of life…
