Should I Get an Osteopathic Evaluation?

I  recommend an osteopathic evaluation if you suffer from conditions such as:

  • Migraines
  • Back pain (new or chronic)
  • Shoulder pain
  • TMJ (temporomandibular joint) Syndrome
  • Significant menstrual cramps
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Dizziness/vertigo
  • Any musculoskeletal issue

These are just examples of some things that may benefit from osteopathic treatment.
An osteopathic evaluation includes a thorough history as well as physical evaluation of the area of concern, followed by osteopathic manipulation techniques as appropriate.


Osteopathic manipulation consistents of a variety of musculoskeletal techniques aimed at freeing up the restriction in the area of concern.
